James Barrett reports at the Daily Wire,
U.S. Customs and Border Protection Arizona released footage Wednesday showing over a hundred illegal immigrants scaling the southern border wall in the Yuma sector. The illegal actions of the "110+" migrants ended in their arrest Monday. Shortly after posting the surveillance footage, CBP Arizona announced that they had detained two MS-13 gang members a day later.Read more here.
"Officials with the United States Customs and Border Protection in Arizona released a new video showing Central American migrants scaling a border wall in the Yuma sector," FOX 10 reports. "According to a tweet made by officials on the verified Twitter account of CBP Arizona, officials say the migrants were arrested on Monday by Border Patrol agents."
The brief video shows the migrants, aided by what CBP Arizona describes as a "smuggler," scaling a ladder to get over the wall. "On Monday #CBP #YumaSector Border Patrol agents apprehended a group of 110+ Central Americans who illegally scaled the wall with the assistance of a smuggler with a ladder," CBP Arizona tweeted.
The mass crossing comes just a few days after the detainment of the largest known group of migrants to ever cross illegally into the U.S. A total of 376 migrants crossed into the country near San Luis, Arizona last week using smugglers' tunnels.
CBP Arizona's next Twitter post contained an official press release announcing the arrest of two MS-13 gang members on Tuesday. "Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents arrest two MS-13 gang members from Honduras traveling together," the agency tweeted, along with the full statement.
