KRGV.com, Ch. 5, ABC News, reported on a recent U.S. Border Patrol capture of 102 illegals who crossed the Rio Grande river on rafts. Fondren is an area in Texas where neighbors claim they can hear gunfire across the border in Mexico. And, they’re used to border patrol activity.

“There’s always Border Patrol and DPS,” a resident told KRGV.com. “We’re just used to it, but not used to people like that. We were really, really surprised.” The resident was referring to the border patrol’s recent roundup of 102 illegals crossing the border from Mexico. Seventy-three were men, 12 were women, and seven were children. Initially more than 80 crossed the Rio Grande River in rafts, and more joined them.

“We’ve seen guys on skis, driving back-and-forth along the river,” the resident told KRGV.com. “We can actually hear voices in traffic from the Mexican town on the other side.”

This capture, however, is out of the ordinary, despite the added surveillance. A border patrol agent said, “Unfortunately, 95 out of 100 crossing attempts are successful.”



Constitution.com 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
