'It doesn't help them make their case': Moment heavily-armed Mexican military...• https://www.dailymail.co, By JAMES GORDON
Heavily-armed Mexican military and US Customs and Border Protection officers were manning the El Paso border on Sunday evening after 'at least a 1,000' migrants unsuccessfully tried to rush a checkpoint.
Video shared by Fox News reporter Bill Melugin showed the 'bilateral show of force' on the border, which included armed security forces in riot gear, barbed wire, concrete blocks and mesh fence on the Paso Del Norte Bridge.
It was shared hours after different footage showed hordes of migrants charging past a line of Mexican officials at the border between Juarez, Mexico, and El Paso, Texas.
Photos captured the moment the group reached the center of the bridge, where they were then blocked by CBP officers, tear gas and barricades.
NEW: This is the bilateral show of force that dispersed the huge group of migrants trying to rush a port of entry in El Paso today. Two lines of Mexican military, then on the US side, physical barriers, barbed wire, and a skirmish line of CBP officers in crowd control gear. pic.twitter.com/YPaNBUhQhu— Bill Melugin (@BillFOXLA) March 13, 2023
