Military Exercises Underway at Texas Border
Federal immigration enforcement agents and US Army soldiers were witnessed Monday carrying out training exercises at a US-Mexico port of entry in anticipation of the migrant caravan’s arrival.
Footage from the McAllen-Hidalgo International Bridge in South Texas shows Customs and Border Protection agents outfitted in SWAT gear, helmets and riot shields training alongside soldiers dispatched to the border as part of Operation Faithful Patriot.
Soldiers and CBP also circled the area in helicopters, while some agents were seen on horseback. Military vehicles apparently outfitted with LRAD sound cannons were also on the scene.
