This is a prime example and clear evidence of the border crisis Democrats either deny or blame Trump for.
Congressman Chip Roy (R-TX) made a trip to Laredo, Texas to view the border situation for himself.
He got more than he bargained for when traffickers belted into the streets from the Rio Grande.
With no physical barrier, it comes as no surprise that the Laredo area is a prime target for cartels and drug smugglers.
“Run for the ladder, run for the ladder,” a cartel-connected human smuggler yelled from the river as the migrants ran north. The area does not have any fencing or walls, making the shallow waters of the Rio Grande the only obstacle. https://t.co/MItSbWGHOI

NOT a crisis …

Breitbart had the exclusive report and provides the footage:
During an interview at night near the banks of the Rio Grande, Congressman Roy was in the process of sharing some of his observations when the interview was cut short as a group of migrants ran north from the river toward a shopping mall in downtown Laredo.
“Run for the ladder, run for the ladder,” a cartel-connected human smuggler yelled from the river as the migrants ran north. The area of the smuggling attempt does not have any physical barriers such as fencing or walls, making the shallow waters of the Rio Grande the only obstacle.
As U.S. Border Patrol agents rushed to intercept the group, the smuggler from the river yelled at them to run back. Some were able to return to the river and make their way back into Mexico while authorities detained two males.
Federal law enforcement sources revealed to Breitbart Texas that during that night just inside the city of Laredo, authorities detained more than 100 migrants in a matter of hours.
But remember, this is NOT a crisis according to Joe Biden and Democrat shills.
