‘Open Borders’ Democrat Joe Biden has made a deal with the UN through the Global Compact for Migration, revisiting Barack Obama’s utopian desires to transform the United States of America after four years of President Donald J. Trump’s bold and determined policies to close the border.
The UN-driven redesign of Western Civilization had been stopped under Trump’s America First agenda. So one of the first points of business Biden did upon seizing the White House was to re-enter the agreement to change the United States into an open borders country and to assist the UN in their plan.
As happened Sunday in Texas, border law enforcement has basically been forced to adopt the measures and stand by as they watch their communities get trampled.
Border patrol agents were forced to erect temporary barricades at a port of entry along the southern U.S. border on March 12. As a result, thousands of illegal immigrants tried to enter the country, with hundreds stampeding border officials by force.
The stampede incident started at the El Paso Del Norte International bridge entry point around 1.30 p.m. local time in El Paso, Texas.
Hundreds attempted to forcefully cross the entry point to the bridge at Juarez, Mexico, according to Fox, who broke the story Sunday night.
Local El Paso Times reported the situation started with a Sunday afternoon standoff between hundreds of migrants and U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in riot gear blocked the Paso Del Norte international bridge connecting Downtown El Paso and Juárez.
There were also temporary disruptions when groups of migrants showed up at two other border bridges in El Paso, a CBP spokesman said in a statement. As a result, barricades were used at the Stanton Bridge from 2 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. and at the Bridge of the Americas from 2:45 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. Sunday.
At the Paso Del Norte Bridge, CBP officers stood behind concrete and plastic barriers topped with barbwire blocking the border at the middle of the top of the bridge before what appeared to be hundreds of migrants.
The footage of Fox News captured the illegal immigrants rushing the border checkpoint, pushing down permanent barriers, and overwhelming armed border officials who struggled to hold back the crowd as they attempted to cross the bridge to the United States.
Meanwhile, others tried to enter the United States from other points.

Migrants, mostly of Venezuelan origin, attempt to forcibly cross into the United States at the Paso del Norte International Bridge in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua state, Mexico, on March 12, 2023. Hundreds of migrants, mostly Venezuelans, attempted to stampede across one of the border bridges in the northern Mexican city of Ciudad Juarez, desperate to enter the United States.
El Paso County Judge Ricardo Samaniego told ABC network affiliate KVIA that, in total, the crowd was sized around 2,000 illegal immigrants. The judge said the majority of the immigrants were Venezuelan males.
After the Mexican National Guard was called in to disperse the crowd, some of whom were attempting to pull down the port barriers and concertina wire, around 100 asylum seekers remained, KVIA reported.
Separate video footage captured and shared online showed large numbers of the group returning to the Juarez checkpoint after the failed attempted crossing.
Fox News reported that the immigrants who reached the U.S. border were met with barbed wire fencing. They were later returned to Mexico.
According to the El Paso migrant situational awareness dashboard, CBP managed 1,210 encounters with illegal immigrants on Sunday and took 2,023 individuals into custody.
In a statement shortly after the incident, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said that officers, including members of the CBP Mobile Field Force, had implemented “port hardening measures” to prevent the migrants from illegally crossing the border, including the deployment of physical barriers.
“A large group of individuals formed on the Mexican side of the border and approached the international boundary posing a potential threat to make a mass entry,” the statement said.
CBP said the incident temporarily prevented northbound traffic at the Paso Del Norte Bridge.
“BREAKING: Our contact in Juarez, MX tells us a massive group of at least 1,000 migrants just attempted to rush a port of entry in El Paso in an effort to get into the United States. Video shows them pushing past the Mexican side of Paso Del Norte bridge. Awaiting CBP comment,” Bill Malguine from Fox News posted the following footage:

El Paso Deputy City Manager Mario D’Agostino told CNN that crowds at the bridge subsided as of Sunday evening.
“At this time EOC (Emergency Operations Center) has shut down. Crowds [have] subsided and it’s just being monitored,” he said.
Live cams show the migrants have dispersed and CBP & the Mexican military now have the bridge under control. However, the bridge is now closed to vehicle traffic, and has been for hours.

Additionally, similar breaches occurred at two other crossings on Sunday: the Stanton crossing, and the Bridge of the Americas crossing, CBP said.
The attempted breach at Stanton crossing occurred from 2 p.m. until 2.45 p.m., and the one at Americas crossing happened from 2.45 p.m. until 3.30 p.m., CBP said.
According to CBP, barricades were also used in both of those incidents to stop illegal entry.
“CBP is working to maintain the legal and orderly flow of entry to the U.S. while protecting the safety and security of legitimate trade and travel, CBP facilities, and the CBP workforce,” the agency said in a statement to CNN. Sunday’s incident comes after President Joe Biden in January announced that immigrants from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Venezuela would be returned to Mexico under Title 42 if they illegally entered the country.
However, the administration will also provide legal immigration opportunities to eligible asylum seekers, allowing them to live and work in the United States, provided they find a sponsor inside the United States and pass a background check, according to the Epoch Times report.
