Illegal migrants wave Venezuelan flag after crossing US southern border, attack Border Patrol agents
A large group of illegal migrants crossed into the U.S. and allegedly attacked Border Patrol agents with a flagpole and rocks, according to Customs and Border Protection.

A massive group of illegal migrants Monday crossed into the U.S. waving a large Venezuelan flag and, according to Customs and Border Protection (CBP), attacked Border Patrol agents before being pushed back into the river as agents used crowd-control measures.

The incident, partially caught on video, saw a group of Venezuelan migrants crossing illegally into El Paso, Texas, as they waved the enormous flag. Agents can be seen pushing migrants back into the river while firing pepper balls near them to control the crowd.

In a statement, CBP said a group of Venezuelans had attempted to illegally enter the U.S. while protesting along the Rio Grande's international boundary.

The agency said one of the protesters assaulted an agent with a flagpole while another threw a rock at agents, injuring one in the process. That in turn led Border Patrol to initiate crowd-control measures. "These measures included the use of the authorized less-lethal force pepperball launching system," the statement said. "The crowd then dispersed and returned to Mexico."

The agency said that its Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) will review the incident.

The chaotic incident comes as the migrant crisis, which has roiled the southern border since early 2021, continues to see streams of large groups of migrants cross into the U.S. illegally. On Tuesday morning, a group of 300 mostly single adults crossed illegally into Normandy, Texas.

In just the Del Rio Sector alone, Border Patrol reports more than 50 large groups of more than 100 migrants since the beginning of October.

Republicans have laid the blame for the crisis at the feet of the Biden administration, saying that its policies of rolling back Trump-era border security and enforcement have only served to draw more migrants to the southern border - with many of them being released into the U.S.

Republican governors have caused outrage from Democratic states by bussing and even flying them to liberal "sanctuary" jurisdictions like New York City, Washington, D.C., Chicago, and Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts. The governors say it has been done to relieve overwhelmed border communities and to bring the crisis home to those areas that describe themselves as welcoming to illegal immigrants.

The Biden administration has taken an approach that has sought to target "root causes" of the crisis, like poverty and violence in Central America. It has also emphasized the importance of cooperation with Western Hemisphere countries and recently announced a new cooperative operation with Mexico that sees more resources and checkpoints set up.

Controversially, it has also expanded Title 42 expulsions to include Venezuelan nationals, who were previously predominantly being released into the U.S. Now, they are being sent back to Mexico, which is bussing them deeper into the Mexican interior and giving migrants 15 days to get a visa or leave the country.

There were more than 227,000 migrant encounters in September, taking the total number for fiscal year 2022 to more than 2.3 million - a new record high. The administration says it has seen a decrease in the number of Venezuelan crossings in the immediate weeks after the new enforcement operation was put into place.

Meanwhile, Texas authorities have been involved in a number of car chases involving smugglers and illegal immigrants. In Kinney County, the local sheriff's department pulled over a speeding vehicle with paper plates, finding eight illegal migrants being smuggled inside.

One would think that these illegal aliens ... errrr ... asylum seekers ... would carry a US flag to show how much they love the USA, want to assimilate, and become US citizens. Instead, they attack law enforcement agents with lethal weapons.

in short put up a NO VACENCY sign,  following are a few things to start with

End immigration

Finish the wall and guard it with a force that will prevent crossing it.  

Let them know they will not be allowed to stay if they get past border

Remove the illegals that are here

Make announcement that the USA is going to take these and other actions to discourage them from trying to come

I wonder why Brandon and his supporters, seeing a Foreigner Coming across our Border Flying a Flag of another Nation and Attacking U.S. Agents, wouldn't consider that an Invasion ?

Hmmmmmm.....

Could it be that Brandon and Company actually want an "Invasion" of this country by "ILLEGALS" ?

I guess you are dumb enough to believe that all of the illegals that are crossing our southern border are hard working. If so we wouldn't nearly have the across the board labor shortages.

Some can be against all illegal immigration; no matter what their skin color and where they are from. That obviously doesn't include Democrats and their supporters.

So only "white trash" expects that people entering and living and working in violation of our laws? Wow that's just a tiny bit racist isn't it. 

they do amazing work, and the is what other laws do they think to hey they bend over backwards to meet your expectations 

I don't care how good they are or how hard they work. There are good Americans that will do those jobs but the illegal will work for much less than the going rates. I do care that the people coming and working here are doing so according to the law. If they will disregard migration laws how many other làws are they will to break? Will they ignore our tax laws? Did they or will they break our drug laws? How many cres of all types are committed by illegals? Nope I don't care how hard working or how azing their work is. If they are here illegally they Must be deported as soon as possible and their employers be fined highly.

Send those caught back to  Mexico immediately. Any that are found that entered the country illegally in the past should be incarcerated for at least 5. Years , then be deported directly from prison right from prison by bus to the border and into Mexico. Penalize mexico for allowing those from theirs or other countries that will enter our country illegals access areas that may be used to cross our border. Get the Mexican government to eliminate the drug smugglers and drug cartels from the border areas or take them out ourselves using special forces and close air support. Fine employer of illegal aliens heavily. Any illegal alien already in the country should be arrested and deported and forfeit any and all assest in this country.
