According to a report from Fox News border correspondent Bill Melugin, a large group of more than 1,000 migrants rushed the port of entry in El Paso, TX on Sunday in an attempt to push through Border Patrol and gain entry into the United States.

Melugin shared footage of the massive group running toward the Paso Del Norte Bridge, pushing past the Mexican side of the port of entry.

“BREAKING: Our contact in Juarez, MX tells us a massive group of at least 1,000 migrants just attempted to rush a port of entry in El Paso in an effort to get into the United States. Video shows them pushing past the Mexican side of Paso Del Norte bridge. Awaiting CBP comment,” Melugin tweeted.

“Another video from our contact. We’re told some crowd control measures were used (unclear which side of border), and a chunk of the group was repelled, and is now gathering at another smaller bridge, while some are trying to cross in the river. Waiting for more details from CBP,” he added.

Melugin shared the CBP’s official response as well.

“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.”
