Law enforcement assembles new kind of “wall” to deter caravan migrants

The border town of Eagle Pass, Texas, saw a massive influx of law enforcement ahead of the migrant caravan’s arrival and used vehicles to create a type of barrier that would aid law enforcement in stopping any migrants who attempted to cross into the United States.

The Washington Examiner’s Anna Giaritelli recorded a video of what Eagle Pass, Texas, looks like even on the roadways, where law enforcement is out in droves to enforce the law on any immigration violations.

“Driving east on a road known as the ‘loop’ in Eagle Pass, Texas, and there are cops everywhere. This continues even downtown where every few blocks a police or border employee is parked. The Maverick County sheriff told me tonight they are ‘showing force.’”

Giaritelli also recorded a video, showing the line of border protection on the border, just on the Texas side of the river.

According to Giaritelli, the caravan made up of 18,00 migrants is currently camped across the river from where the makeshift barrier of vehicles was set up.

“EAGLE PASS, TEXAS — More than 60 law enforcement vehicles lined up on the border in what Border Patrol is calling a ‘show of force’ to warn caravan migrants who are just over the Rio Grande River in Piedras Negras against illegally crossing”

“To me, it’s like showing force. It would give a message to the immigrants that want to come illegally through Texas that Texas is always prepared and have a lot of manpower at the border — that they would go to another state,” said Maverick County Sheriff Tom Schmerber told the Washington Examiner.

According to Schmerber, the length of time this show of strength goes on for will depend on whether the migrants attempt to cross the border into the United States or not, and out of region law enforcement has no idea when they’ll be allowed to go home.

“We don’t have a date, number, a month or whatever,” he said.
