BREAKING: One of the most massive single groups we have ever witnessed cross illegally at the border is crossing into Eagle Pass, TX right now. The line of people went so far into the trees it’s hard to get a count. Hundreds upon hundreds. Coyotes guiding them in water. @FoxNews pic.twitter.com/ZjZIygarAv

A massive group of hundreds of illegal migrants streamed across the southern border in Texas on Wednesday — marking one of the largest groups to flood into the U.S. in recent months, and a dramatic snapshot of the historic crisis facing officials at the southern border.
The hundreds of illegal border crossers were being guided into the water by smugglers, often referred to as “coyotes,” at the river in Eagle Pass, Texas, footage of which was captured by Fox News.
Federal sources told Fox there were 2,258 illegal crossings in Del Rio Sector on Tuesday alone. Over a seven-day period, there were more than 13,000 crossings in the sector.
