Rioting Charges for 222 Migrants Who Broke Through Razor Wire, Knocked Down Guards on Texas Border in Shocking Video; Migrants Charged in Border Wall Riot Will Stay in Jail

Rioting charges for 222 migrants who broke through razor wire, knocked down guards on Texas border in shocking video:
Over 200 migrants have now been charged with rioting over the shocking caught-on-camera border rush which left Texas National Guard troops injured at El Paso, Texas.
The state has identified 222 migrants who pulled down fences and razor wire then violently pushed past the heavily outnumbered Texas troops on March 21, according to
Charges of participating in a riot have been brought against 118 people on Friday and 97 more over the weekend, according to the site. Seven others were handed the same, alongside a charge of criminal mischief, at the end of last week.
On Sunday El Paso magistrate judge Humberto Acosta said the “hundreds of arrestees” from the riot were entitled to have individual bail hearings within 48 hours of being charged and denied the District Attorney’s request for more time to prepare.
Acosta then ordered the 39 migrants who had been brought before him over the rioting charges could be “released on their own recognizance” as the District Attorney had scheduled them for one mass hearing instead of individually.
However, following the hearing all were instead transferred from state custody to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
ICE confirmed it is waiting to assume custody of all those charged with rushing the border and will start deportation proceedings against each of them.
“All individuals allegedly involved in the March 21 border breach had federal detainers filed byImmigration and Customs Enforcement to have them returned to its custody once releasedfrom state custody,” the El Paso county court said in a statement shared with The Post. --->READ MORE HERE
Migrants charged in border wall riot will stay in jail:
Thirty-nine migrants charged by Texas with rioting at the border wall will not get their bond reduced.
El Paso County Jail Magistrate Tony Aun made the call on Monday at the request of a public defender fearful of losing contact with her clients, who would pass onto federal custody if “released” by local judges. That would hinder the chances of fighting off a conviction that not only could send them to prison, but disqualify them from future immigration benefits.
“There is a hold on my client based on an immigration retainer. If your honor were to release him, he would not actually be released,” said Kelli Childress, a county public defender. “Therefore, we are requesting he remain in the County Jail because if he were to go to an immigration center, he would not have any contact with me.”
The client Childress was referring to is Camilo Alcala del Arco, one of 222 people charged in El Paso County in connection with a March 21 incident near Gate 36 of the border wall. A viral video shows a large group of migrants coming across the Rio Grande from Mexico, tearing down Texas’ barbwire barrier and forcing themselves through a line of outnumbered Texas Army National Guard troops.
The state has accused more than 200 people of participating in a riot and a handful of others with additional charges of property damage and assault on a public servant in connection with the event. An El Paso District Attorney’s Office assistant DA did not contest the public defender’s request and said the state is ready to move forward with the charges. --->READ MORE HERE
