More than 1,000 migrants rushed the Paso del Norte Port of Entry along the US-Mexico border between Texas and Chihuahua state on Sunday. They pushed past the Mexican side of the border and ran toward the Paso Del Norte Bridge. Thanks to the reporting of Fox News reporter Bill Melugin, some of the chaos was captured and posted on social media.

Though crowd control tactics were used, some broke away and gathered at a smaller bridge nearby. Some migrants crossed by going through the river. As it happened, CBP called the massive crowd “a temporary disruption” due to “something going on in Mexico.” They weren’t able to provide much information at the beginning of the disruption. El Paso police and CBP assembled in downtown El Paso, which is about two miles from the Mexican border.
CBP released a statement.

“CBP officials including members of the CBP Mobile Field Force implemented port hardening measures at the Paso Del Norte international bridge at 1:30 p.m. today temporarily preventing the northbound flow of traffic on the Mexican side of the border and approached the international boundary posing a potential threat to make a mass entry,” the statement reads. “The CBP response included the deployment of physical barriers to restrict entry. As of 5 pm there is no traffic processing occurring at PDN.
Authorities said two other “temporary disruptions” occurred at the Stanton crossing and at the Bridge to America, causing law enforcement to set up barricades.
