Video shows ILLEGALS streaming through Texas neighborhood without border wall

Nowhere is the need for President Trump to shut off asylum requests and build a wall more evident than in the small neighborhoods at the border in the Rio Grande Valley in the southern tip of Texas. The Young Republicans of Hidalgo County posted on Facebook a 90-second video last week of a stream of illegal aliens teaming through a residential neighborhood of Los Ebanos, Texas, near the border of Hidalgo and Starr counties.
First, ask yourself if asylum laws and treaties that are all written in singular language were ever meant to apply to masses of people streaming through our neighborhoods. But the more relevant point is that Los Ebanos, like many border towns in Hidalgo and Starr counties, run right up to the Rio Grande River. Unlike in other areas of the border, such as in Arizona, where there is vast desert or ranchland as a buffer between residential neighborhoods and the international border, these streets run right up to the border line.
Yet, these are the very neighborhoods where the local congressmen bragged about blocking the construction of a border wall.
“I worked hard to include language through the appropriations process that would protect communities from an ineffective and divisive border wall. This change order reduces the number of miles from eight to four in Starr County,” Henry Cuellar wrote in a news release in April.
These areas need a border wall more than any other part of the border because smugglers have the ability to get people across the river and into the neighborhoods within minutes, whereas in the desert areas, Border Patrol can interdict them before they come into contact with the population centers.
While having the danger of family units is bad enough, given the desperation of their situation and coming into contact with those potentially carrying contagious diseases, what is particularly concerning are the “runners” or “got aways” who have criminal records and are smuggled in across the river at strategic locations. Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost has confirmed that over 100,000 illegal aliens have gotten away from Border Patrol this year, and those numbers are likely a dramatic understatement.
Moreover, we now know from Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) that up to one quarter of the members of certain caravans had criminal records already inside the United States. Who knows how many have criminal records in their home countries or are prone to criminality once they get here. Yet, they are walking straight into Texas neighborhoods within a minute of crossing the river.
