In an exclusive report from Breitbart, the outlet says more than 600 migrants were apprehended after entering the United States on Thursday, a CBP source confirmed.
This all happen in just one single day, despite the fact that law enforcements were present on both sides of the Rio Grande.
During that day, the total number of apprehended illegals accounted for more than 50% of the apprehensions within the Del Rio Sector.

A rescue team in Mexico, “Grupo Beta,” patrolled the river periodically in an airboat as troops with the Mexican National Guard watched. The Mexican National Guard, known as “La Guardia Nacional,” had a little apparent impact.
On the United States side of the Rio Grande, Border Patrol agents performed similar marine activities.
Texas National Guard troops standing along a makeshift wall of shipping containers watched over the river and took migrants into custody. Soldiers waited with family units until Border Patrol transports arrived.
One unaccompanied migrant child walked through a gap in the Texas border wall currently under construction. The wall is nearing completion, however, gates along roadways have yet to be installed. A Texas Department of Public Safety Highway Patrol trooper spotted the youth and turned the migrant over to Border Patrol.
In a revolving door fashion, Border Patrol agents made several trips to the Eagle Pass International Bridge to return mostly single adult migrants to Mexico under the CDC Title 42 Emergency COVID-19 order. The source says these scenarios are playing out daily and have challenged the agency’s ability to keep up with the constant flow.
The source says there are no “off days,” meaning the flow of migrants is constant. The source says the Rio Grande Valley still maintains a firm lead in overall apprehensions.
The lack of a coherent federal response caused frustration among residents in that area. This rampant migrant crossings are occurring in the downtown area and more remote ones around the city, the source said according to the outlet.
Just recently, reports confirmed that in just one single event of illegals crossing of the north of Eagle Pass, nearly 200 migrants attempted. The larger groups are mostly Venezuelan, Cuban, and Nicaraguan migrants.
