    Exclusive Photos: Mexican Law Enforcement’s Show of Force Along Texas Border as Title

    Exclusive Photos: Mexican Law Enforcement’s Show of Force Along Texas Border as Title 42 End Nears



    by RANDY CLARK 10 May 2023

    EAGLE PASS, Texas — Multiple local, state, and federal law enforcement entities in Mexico posted along the banks of the Rio Grande in Piedras Negras, Coahuila, in a show of force as the end of the Title 42 COVID-19 expulsion authority nears. At daybreak on Wednesday, Breitbart Texas observed the Mexican police exercise that brought migrant crossings to a complete, albeit temporary, shutdown just across the border from Eagle Pass.

    The large convoy of Mexican law enforcement arrived just before daybreak. The task force assembled near the Camino Real International Bridge that connects the two border cities of Eagle Pass, Texas, and Piedras Negras, Mexico. The convoy included local municipal police, Mexico’s Federal Investigative Agency (AFI), Mexico’s National Institute of Immigration officers (INM), and Mexican Army soldiers.

    In addition to the presence of law enforcement authorities on the banks of the Rio Grande, several airboats belonging to Mexico’s INM rescue unit, Grupo Beta, were launched and began patrols in the water.

    Simultaneously, Texas Army National Guard soldiers began marine patrols launching several inflatable watercraft from the U.S. side of the river. The Texas Army National Guard soldiers patrolling the Rio Grande are part of Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s Operation Lone Star.

    According to a source within Customs and Border Protection, not authorized to speak to the media, migrant crossings into Eagle Pass have climbed in recent weeks to more than 1,000 per day on average. On Tuesday, agents in the Del Rio Sector apprehended nearly 1,700 migrants, another law enforcement source reported.

    The level of migrant crossings is rising steadily as the deadline for the expiration of Title 42 nears according to multiple sources. Wednesday’s operation in Mexico is likely a temporary show of force that will halt migrant traffic near the border city’s center but will not impact migrants choosing to cross in more remote areas according to the CBP source.

    On the United States side of the border, several CBP Office of Field Operations managers met with Texas Army National Guard soldiers posted near the Camino Real International Bridge as the operation in Mexico unfolded.

    The lack of federal law enforcement posted along the Rio Grande in Eagle Pass was noticeable. As migrant apprehensions climb, routine field patrols are reduced and limited to more remote areas where large migrant groups will likely cross the Rio Grande to avoid interference by the Mexican authorities.

    Within hours of the initial assembly of law enforcement authorities in Mexico, the groups of officers and soldiers in Mexico moved to points north and south of the port of entry and assumed stationary positions to deter migrants from reaching the river’s edge.

    The Border Patrol’s Del Rio Sector, which includes Eagle Pass, led the nation in migrant apprehensions in fiscal year 2022, with more than half of a million migrants choosing to cross the Rio Grande into the area. A sharp decline was seen after the application of the Title 42 expulsion authority for Venezuelan migrants in October.

    In April, 20,000 migrants were arrested within the sector, down from 42,000 in October 2022.

    So far, Eagle Pass has not seen the surge in migrant crossings to the extent other sectors of the Border Patrol are encountering elsewhere. In El Paso, as reported by Breitbart Texas, migrants have resorted to sheltering along the sidewalks and alleyways within the downtown area as charity shelters have reached capacity. In Brownsville, Breitbart Texas observed the continuous flow of mostly Venezuelan migrants quickly surrendering after fording the Rio Grande.

    With less than 36 hours for the use of the Title 42 COVID-19 expulsion authority remaining, Wednesday’s display of force in Mexico shows tension appears to be running high on both sides of the border.
