How open is our border with Mexico? The video below shows just how open it REALLY is at the Rio Grande. The smugglers openly cross with illegals who hop out of the raft and flee. Please see the video from 2014 below this current video and you’ll know how deep the problem is…

A reporter was embedded with the border patrol when they saw the man in the inflatable raft and went after him.
WE REPORTED IN 2014 ON THE RIO GRANDE PATHWAY ACROSS THE BORDER – THE VIDEO WAS SHOCKING THEN AND IS SHOCKING NOW: THIS VIDEO IS A MUST-SEE VIDEO!
BACK TO 2018 AND IT’S STILL HAPPENING…
DAILY MAIL REPORTS:
‘Look, there’s a smuggler,’ Agent Rodriguez shouted as he caught sight of the group and ran through the woods towards the shore.
‘I cannot go in the river to apprehend him. As long as he goes back south, I’m all right.’
After the smuggler rowed away, the about half a dozen young immigrants, including an infant, were taken for questioning.
Elsewhere in McAllen, another smuggler escaped back across the border by driving quickly down a dirt road after abandoning his cargo.
THIS IS A HUGE BUSINESS FOR THESE MEN WHO MAKE THOUSANDS ON HUMAN SMUGGLING ACROSS OUR BORDER.
THINK OF HOW MANY THOUSANDS HAVE BEEN DOING THIS FOR YEARS, DECADES…
Border Agents arrest 5,000 illegal immigrants with criminal records trying to cross the border
Hundreds of gang members and more than 5,000 convicted criminals were arrested trying to sneak back into the U.S. in just eight months.
They included 505 confirmed members of violent groups MS-13, 18th Street gang, and the Mexican Mafia hoping to rejoin their organizations.
Last week six violent criminals were detained for deportation after crossing the border, including a convicted murder and paedophile.
Border Patrol agents arrested a Mexican national near El Centro, California who was convicted of child molestation on June 22.

On the same day a suspected MS-13 gang member was picked up near McAllen, Texas.
On the other side of the country, a Peruvian national and a Mexican national were apprehended on June 23 near Averill, Vermont on Saturday.
Record checks revealed both were previously deported and the Mexican admitted to being a member of the 18th Street gang.
The next day a Mexican man who served 32 years in jail for murder was apprehended near San Ysidro, California.
Two more confessed gang members from El Salvador were arrested on the same day, and MS-13 member near Three Points, Arizona, and a 18th street member near Rio Grande City, Texas.
‘Human smuggling is a violent criminal enterprise that puts the safety of our communities and our country at risk,’ Acting Deputy Chief Scott Luck said.
‘We are committed to using the wealth of resources, technology and expertise at our disposal not only to disrupt the current activity, but to identify and dismantle the criminal organizations behind it.’
Border Patrol was able to identify the criminals and gang members by searching CBP and FBI biometric databases.
The databases electronically compared a live-scanned fingerprint against a nationwide database of biometrically indexed records.
