US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents had to use tear gas and pepper spray early Saturday to stop nearly 50 migrants from illegally entering the US after they stormed against the temporary barriers a port of entry along the Texas-Mexico border. Three waves of migrants stormed the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge at 4 am, when the bridge was closed. This port of entry was reported to be controlled by the drug cartels. Several combative male migrants pushed through the barriers began assaulting the CPB officers by punching, kicking, and attempting to grab the officers’ protective devices.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents had to use tear gas and pepper spray early Saturday to stop nearly 50 “undocumented individuals” from illegally entering the U.S. after they stormed a port of entry along the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas, officials said.

The incident at the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge took place at around 4 a.m. The bridge is closed between midnight at 6 a.m., but CBP has had to construct temporary barriers in the middle of the span due to the large influx of migrants using the bridge at night.

A CBP official told Fox News the group attempted to rush across the bridge in three waves.

“Ignoring commands to stop, the group suddenly rushed the temporary barricades, bent metal poles and disabled the concertina wire affixed to the barrier,” the official said.

CBP officers, Border Patrol agents, Pharr police and members of the Texas Department of Public Safety were called upon to prevent the group’s entry, according to the official.

“Several males in the group disregarded commands to stop and physically pushed through the barriers,” the official said. “When confronted by CBP officers, the combative individuals began assaulting the officers by punching, kicking, and attempting to grab the officers’ protective devices.”
