KGBT CBS4 Reporter Sydney Hernandez traveled to the Texas border at Rincon Village Wednesday night at about 6 p.m. The deserted area on the banks of the Rio Grande is a well-known border crossing area. During the next six hours, Hernandez sent out a series of tweets capturing the images of migrants walking up the dirt roads from the border river where human smugglers cross them at will. The migrants walk up to the first Border Patrol agent or other law enforcement officers they can find and turn themselves in.

The groups started out small, Hernandez told Breitbart News on Thursday. She said she witnessed 20 in the first group, 38 in the second, “then 40, then 50, then about 150.” During the six-hour stretch, the counted about 298 migrants who illegally crossed the border from Mexico.

I’m so sorry these updates are coming out a bit delayed on time due to the lack of signal out here. But this is exactly what is happening just after 12:30 AM on the border.

FINAL UPDATE: Thanks for watching these super short informal clips of what’s happening on the Texas Mexico Border. This is what it looks like just feet from the Rio Grande while the rest of the world is sleeping. Next shift of agents just showed up.
