New footage posted on X shows illegal aliens coming across the Texas-Mexico border at Eagle Pass and awaiting processing. 

The footage—captured by citizen journalist Auden Cabello—is from December 19. According to Cabello, hundreds are crossing the border every day at Eagle Pass. 

“For the past several months, Eagle Pass was seeing on average 1,500 daily encounters from predominantly Venezuela and Central America,” Cabello posted on X. 

Cabello also stated that according to border patrol agents in the Del Rio Sector, these illegal aliens have been coming mainly from 28 countries—including Venezuela, Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Columbia, Cuba, Ecuador, Mexico, and El Salvador. 

Many are also coming from Middle Eastern countries such as Lebanon and Oman. Illegal aliens from China are also arriving at Eagle Pass. 

Other extended footage captured by Cabello shows what happens every morning when massive groups cross into Eagle Pass. “Like clockwork, large groups are released and guided from the shelter (stash house) to a specific crossing point,” Cabello said. 

The journalist also embedded himself within a group of about 800 migrants on the Mexico side headed to the Rio Grande to cross illegally into Texas. 

In a recent Fox News interview, Cabello explains that after conducting intense digging into the crisis at the southern border, there seems to be an organized effort from border patrol agents to facilitate groups of illegal crossings into Eagle Pass. 

“After covering it for so long, it seems that there was something orchestrated—or somewhat organized. So I started digging a little bit deeper, and I started talking to the migrants and eventually they opened up saying that they’ve been receiving GPS coordinates,” Cabello stated in the interview. 

He explained that migrants are being approached sometimes 100 miles from the border and given GPS coordinates to a shelter, where further instructions are given for where and when to cross into Eagle Pass. 

Texas lawmakers recently passed legislation that creates a state crime for entering Texas illegally, but the new measure is being challenged in court by the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas.
