A standoff between hundreds of migrants and U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in riot gear Sunday afternoon blocked the Paso Del Norte international bridge connecting El Paso and the Mexican border city Juárez.

There were also temporary disruptions when groups of migrants showed up at two other border bridges in El Paso, a border protection spokesman said in a statement. 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, officers stood behind concrete and plastic barriers topped with barbed wire blocking the border at the middle of the top of the bridge before what appeared to be hundreds of migrants.

  1. It’s almost like there should be some sort of barrier to prevent criminals from entering the country and allowing everyone in just encourages more to come. Crazy no one has proposed such a thing.

    1. hmmm, I think I know what you’re talking about, but I just can’t put my finger on it. Does it start with a w? lmfao On a serious note, just watching this is infuriating!!!! I need to quote Greta Thurnbugs…”How dare they”!!!

  2. When there are a multitude of people who are from , or whose ancestors are from cultures and societies who have not and are not capable of making a civilization like was Made in the USA, in the West and in parts of Asia, as more and more of these people come and multiply, then the inevitable outcome will be a USA more like the cultures and societies of these newcomers. California is a great example of this future civilization. So are many of the major cities in the USA.

  3. Where are they going anyways? They will stick out like sore thumbs and just made their chances of asylum worse.

  4. This is ridiculous, immigrants who can not follow the rules and want to behave like criminals should not be rewarded with anything. I’m an immigrant but just like everybody else I waited for my turn, we are law enforcement agencies spending out tax money in these people who haven’t contributed in anything to this Country. Why don’t they fight this way in their own Countries? Send them back

  5. *Amazing video and thank you for breaking it down!! Despite the economic downturn, I’m so happy 😊.I have been earning $15,200 returns from my $7000 investment every 14days*

    1. I just withdrew my profits a week ago, it was so shocked when I withdrew $32,450 knowing I invested $3,000. I wish I could reinvest but, too much bills 😫

    2. I’m so glad to see Mr. Jed McCaleb mentioned here, my spouse recommended him to me after investing $10,000 and he has really helped us financially in time of COVID-19 lockdown here in Australia 🇳🇿

    3. I made more money than that when I fired all my democratic employees for illegal immigrants.

    1. The people in juarez are generally tired of them and wouldnt mind them moving on. BTW, if poverty is an excuse for asylum, most of jusrez would also like to come over.

    2. @David Holden I visit my father in Juarez often (I’m in el paso) and you aren’t wrong. Juarez has tons open factory jobs for the migrants and they don’t wanna be in Mexico as much as alot of people in Juarez don’t even want the migrants in their country.

    3. Venezuela Venezuela is not Mexican not even the Mexicans in Mexico want these are two different cultures

  6. So they can’t pull up like this to cartel strongholds? But they can pull up like this to our border? Fix you’re own country

  7. So in their heads they think they have right to come over here im from immigrants family but their is channels and this over flow u never know who’s really coomming over

  8. Those are migrants from Venezuela, they cross into Mexico and now want to cross into United States
