Very Large Group of African Migrants Wade Across the Rio Grande Into US (VIDEO)
US Customs and Border Protection posted a video of a group of illegal aliens from Angola, Cameroon and Ebola-stricken Congo wading across the Rio Grande into the United States.
The video shows men, women and children crossing the river in the dead of the night.
Border Patrol announced they apprehended 116 invaders from Africa on Thursday.
“Agents have encountered 182 large groups (100+ individuals) across the SW border this fiscal year. This is the first large group apprehended in Del Rio Sector this FY and the first large group apprehended on the SW border this FY consisting entirely of African nationals,” CBP said in a statement.

The White House tweeted the video of the Africans crossing the Rio Grande, saying, “Our southern border is now a magnet for illegal immigration from all over the world. It’s time for Democrats to help close the loopholes!”
