A disturbing and alarming video has surfaced on social media that reportedly shows a massive line of illegal immigrants lined up waiting to cross the Rio Grande into Texas.
Fox Nation host Lara Logan wrote via Twitter: “This was the southern border in Texas this am – according to law enforcement sources. Not the view those in power are eager for people to see & pushback is already starting but those on the ground know the truth.”
The video first appeared on the TikTok account for “Tripwires & Triggers.” The owner behind the site is Jaeson Jones and his stated intention for the service is to keep the public informed about what is really transpiring on the southern border. He “previously served as a captain in the Intelligence and Counterterrorism Division of the Texas Department of Public Safety” and is the voice narrating the footage.
“What you are about to see are migrants who have just paid the Peso or the tax to the Cartels and an independent smuggling group working directly for a Cartel,” Jones stated while footage shows a raft crossing the Rio Grande with almost a dozen migrants wearing masks.

“You’re literally seeing a handoff from a criminal organization, that is responsible for thousands of murders in Mexico, handing these people off to a U.S. law enforcement officer,” Jones noted. The illegal immigrants are said to be coming from Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico.
Later on, a version of the video that had no commentary surfaced on Twitter.
In what can only be described as a very dangerous endeavor, Jones has extensively covered what is going on across our border. He is reporting that Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers have now been reassigned from border security to migrant care and processing.
The video is a bad look for the Biden administration as they continue to claim that there is no “open border” with Mexico. The footage shows just how easy it is to illegally cross our border which for all intents and purposes appears to be wide open.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki claimed on Thursday that there has been “a large flow of children” coming across the border, but she adamantly stated that the majority of migrants trying to cross over have been turned away.
“We certainly also recognize because the president and our administration has made a decision that the way to humanely approach immigration is to allow for unaccompanied children to come and be treated with humanity and be in a safe place while we’re… trying to get them into homes and sponsors homes that some more may come to our border,” Psaki said.
The situation is compounded due to the risk of spreading the coronavirus since the Border Patrol is allegedly not testing the migrants.
Just in the last two weeks, the number of unaccompanied migrant children has reportedly tripled on the border. The number of illegal immigrants, in general, has exploded since Biden came into office and reversed former President Trump’s immigration policies. Violence and crime are also skyrocketing.
Texas Rep. Chip Roy shared the video and slammed President Biden for the surge in border crossings. He pointed out that migrants are being used as “political pawns” by Biden and they are being abused and killed trying to cross the border.
Texas’ Rio Grande Valley saw a sharp increase from 17,000 migrant apprehensions in January, to nearly 28,000 in February. Arizona also saw a massive jump in the number of illegal immigrants crossing their border with Mexico.
