Illegal Immigrants Who Stormed National Guard Processed And Released Into United States By Border Patrol
CIUDAD JUAREZ, MEXICO - MARCH 20: Irregular immigrants coming from Central and South America who have gathered in the town of Ciudad Juarez on the Mexican border continue to wait at the US border on March 20, 2024, in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Razor wire fences were installed in front of the Rio Grande River by the Texas National Guard in order to make it difficult for irregular immigrants to cross illegally.

Many of the illegal immigrants who stormed the southern border on Thursday by breaking down razor wire and fencing before pushing into National Guard troops were reportedly processed and released into the United States after the incident. 

Video captured by New York Post reporter Jennie Taer showed hundreds of illegal immigrant men charging the border in El Paso, Texas, and appearing to assault National Guard troops. According to Taer, many of these men were processed by Border Patrol under Title 8, a measure that allows illegal immigrants to be released while their asylum claims make it through the courts. 

”This sends the message to people around the world that even if you act like this you can probably get into the country,” Taer said during an interview on Fox News. “And I think they continue to push these boundaries and to see what they can get away with and here they got away with some really, really scary stuff.”

Governor Greg Abbott (R-TX) gave a brief update about the incident a few hours after video of the incident garnered millions of views online. Taer’s video of the incident had been viewed nearly 17 million times by Friday afternoon. 

“The TX National Guard & Dept. of Public Safety quickly regained control & are redoubling the razor wire barriers,” Abbott said. “DPS is instructed to arrest every illegal immigrant involved for criminal trespass & destruction of property.”


Republicans responded to the video by calling on President Joe Biden to secure the border and said that Congress should not approve funding for the government while the crisis continued. Under Biden, illegal immigrants have crossed and been released into the United States in record numbers. 

“Republicans cannot approve government funding for the Biden administration to continue this disaster,” Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) said. “The future of our country is at stake.”

“Every American should watch this,” Sen. J.D. Vance said. “We shouldn’t fund Joe Biden’s government until he does something to address this. The power of the purse is our only leverage.”

“[Biden] and [DHS Secretary Mayorkas] won’t say this is a crisis, they’ll only say it’s a ‘challenge,’” Sen. Ron Johnson said. “No, Mr. President, this is an invasion, and you’re doing nothing to protect America.”
