Migrant ‘Ladder Crews’ Scale Arizona Border Wall Nightly:
A source within Customs and Border Protection notes that multiple groups of migrants are rushing the border wall near Douglas, Arizona, almost nightly. The migrant groups, led by “ladder crews,” rush in numbers greater than 100 at a time. The smugglers prop ladders to clear the steel barrier with hopes of overwhelming the few Border Patrol agents working the area.
The source, not authorized to speak to the media, told Breitbart Texas nearly 100 migrants elude apprehension during the fast-paced smuggling operations on a nightly basis. The agent’s efforts are hindered by the requirement of processing migrants surrendering elsewhere. Daily, buses of surrendering migrants are brought in from Yuma, where agents are also overwhelmed.
The source says the added task of processing the migrants surrendering in large numbers in Yuma is forcing Border Patrol in Douglas to limit standard operations.
The source says the groups of migrants that are smuggled over the border wall in Douglas by the ladder crews are not like those who routinely surrender in large groups in other border cities. These groups are mostly single adults who face immediate return to Mexico if captured, the source added. The source says the agency has no idea who is getting away from the skeleton patrols. --->READ MORE HERE

Agents seize stash of ladders, ammo in remote part of southern border:
Border Patrol agents swept through a remote part of the U.S.-Mexico border in California this week and found a cache of 29 makeshift ladders.
Agents were working a joint operation with Mexican authorities, using drones to gain visibility on the mountainous area east of Otay Mesa, when they spotted a group of armed smugglers and illegal immigrants along the border.
The group, realizing it had been spotted, retreated into Mexico, managing to avoid Mexican law enforcement that was responding from the south. But the group left behind the 29 ladders, as well as 75 rounds of ammunition.
The terrain on both sides of the boundary in that location features hills and canyons, making it a popular spot for smugglers to bring in drugs or people who don’t want to be caught. The popularity of the route spurred the Department of Homeland Security to build a wall along much of the border in that area, necessitating the use of ladders to cross. --->READ MORE HERE
