Shocking Footage Shows Migrant Invasion Plan in Action - Watch!
A train carrying possibly hundreds of migrants was spotted in Mexico, heading towards the U.S. border, as the number of people trying to enter the United States continues to soar.
The incident took place in central Mexico, as a BNSF Railway train departed from Irapuato, Guanajuato, a city located approximately 200 miles northwest of Mexico City. The train's route includes stops in Torreon, Monterey, and Piedras Negras, a border city across from Eagle Pass, Texas.
The sightings of migrants riding atop trains have become increasingly common in recent months, as many see it as a quick and efficient way to reach the U.S. border. However, this dangerous method of travel puts the migrants' lives at risk, as they can easily fall off the train or suffer injuries from the moving train itself.
The latest incident comes at a time when the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is struggling to cope with the record number of migrants attempting to enter the country. In response to the surge, CBP announced on Monday that it will temporarily suspend or reduce vehicle processing at ports of entry in Texas and Arizona.
According to a statement from the CBP, beginning at 3 p.m. local time, vehicle processing operations at Eagle Pass International Bridge 1 in Eagle Pass, Texas, will be temporarily suspended. This bridge is one of the busiest border crossings in the country, connecting Ciudad Acuña, Mexico, to Eagle Pass, Texas.

Furthermore, vehicle processing will be reduced at 2 p.m. local time in Lukeville, Arizona, another major border crossing that connects to Nogales, Mexico. These measures are being taken to redirect CBP personnel to assist the U.S. Border Patrol with taking migrants into custody.
Several CBP sectors have reported a significant increase in migrant encounters in the past few weeks. The U.S. Border Patrol's Tucson Sector in Arizona, for instance, reported a record high of 15,300 illegal crossings last week, the largest weekly total ever recorded. This overwhelming surge of migrants has put a strain on CBP resources, leading to the implementation of emergency measures to handle the situation.
In addition to the temporary suspension and reduction of vehicle processing at border crossings, CBP has also deployed additional personnel to the border and is working with local and state law enforcement agencies to manage the influx of migrants.
The Biden administration has faced criticism for its handling of the situation at the border and has been under pressure to take action to address the issue. The increase in migrant encounters and the reliance on dangerous forms of travel, such as riding on top of trains, highlights the desperation of those attempting to enter the United States and the urgency of finding a solution to the ongoing border crisis.
