On Sunday morning, a line of 150 illegal immigrants was spotted swimming across the Rio Grande into Eagle Pass, Texas. The footage was captured by Fox News’ Bill Melugin.
“BREAKING: Another group of approximately 150 is crossing illegally into Eagle Pass, TX right now. You can see one of their smugglers wading back to Mexico. Like clockwork, this is the fifth day in a row we have seen a group of this size cross here in late AM hours.”
Earlier in May, an immigrant drowned trying to cross the Rio Grande at Eagle Pass. Gaurd members could not rescue the migrant, said Fox News at the time.

There were 159,900 crossings in individuals trying to cross the border illegally nationwide in March. That is a 37% increase from February, says US Customs and Border Protection.
