Illegal Aliens Thwarted at Texas Border by Border Patrol

Brandon Darby and Daniel Nussbaum, Breitbart, July 1, 2014

Breitbart Texas caught an attempted illegal entry from Mexico on camera. The attempt occurred in broad daylight in the center of the Laredo, Texas. Two men can be seen crossing the Rio Grande River that separates the U.S. and Mexico on Texas’ southern border.

It is important to note that the area where the men crossed is one of the few staffed areas in what is known by U.S. authorities as the Laredo sector. A trusted Border Patrol source spoke with Breitbart Texas on the matter and said that the Los Zetas allow illegal immigrants to cross in the urban area, but prevent them from crossing a little further upstream. The source stated that the reason for this is that having a high number of illegal immigrants crossing in the urban area results in Border Patrol assigning agents to that area, thus leaving the upstream area without a law enforcement presence.

In addition to the trusted confidential Border Patrol source, Breitbart Texas spoke with Hector Garza, a local Border Patrol agent and spokesman for the National Border Patrol Council Local 2455. He stated that approximately 70 percent of the Border Patrol agents in the area were no longer on the line protecting or patrolling the border, but rather assigned to provide care for the unaccompanied minors and incomplete family units crossing illegally into the U.S. from Mexico. {snip}
