As per local sources, illegal aliens have been witnessed climbing out of storm drains in El Paso’s downtown area in order to unlawfully enter the nation.
El Paso Under Siege From Illegals
Witnesses in the vicinity of downtown El Paso have observed migrants emerging out of drainage systems for weeks, often in groups of 30.
Six illegal immigrants were seen on Wednesday night, immediately north of the border barrier by a KVIA-TV news team. They infiltrated the United States sewage system through breaches in the Rio Grande river, which functions as the border boundary.
Rosalina Tapia, a nearby homeowner, told a television station in October that they are no longer to use the river to enter, but rather the water tunnels.
Tapia has observed traffickers awaiting migrants after they climbed onto the street, preparing to transport them further into the nation.
They are being instructed to conceal themselves behind their back door while someone phones to get someone to fetch them.

Tapia told the broadcaster she is trying to get a firearm, as she worries for her security since traffickers have tried to flee in parked automobiles. Tapia said it’s like a day-and-night affair. Smugglers used her building as a staging area.
The City of El Paso has acknowledged that illegal immigrants are utilizing the city’s wastewater system to access the nation.
Thursday’s press briefing in El Paso was led by Deputy City Manager Mario D’Agostino, who stated they are in daily contact with their Customs and Border Patrol collaborators.
This way, they can keep increasing enforcement in that neighborhood even though individuals are arriving. They want to make absolutely sure they are receiving census data so they recognize who is entering.
Crikey, how long has this sewer invasion of #illegalaliens been going on? 😱
The estimated illegal "got-aways" numbers in TX need to be increased. Significantly.#Illegalmmigrants seen climbing out of #sewer manholes and sneaking into #Texas https://t.co/wJ2joQ6PiE via @nypost

Another distressing video captured illegal aliens sprinting and leaping over the El Paso border fence and into oncoming cars on a nearby freeway.
According to Border Patrol statistics, the sixth-largest city within Texas is the current heart of the border issue, with much more migrants entering the United States through the region than any other place in the state.
El Paso sees over 2,400 people per day attempting to reach the border. As a result of the expiration of Title 42, this number could reach 5,000.
Title 42 is a COVID-19 policy from the Trump administration that permits Border Patrol to immediately deport around 40% of all illegal immigrants, but a federal court directed the government to cease implementing it by December 21.
El Paso Sees Thousands of Illegals
On Sunday, more than 1,500 migrants traversed the border into El Paso and queued up to report to Border Patrol officials. This group consisted primarily of Nicaraguan asylum applicants searching for border officials in order to file a formal claim.
Migrants from countries such as El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico typically do not require asylum and instead rely on smugglers and riskier entry methods.
