“They direct us towards the river and make it easier for us to cross,” migrant tells Border Hawk.
A constant stream of migrants are being funneled to a shelter run by Mexican authorities and NGOs in Piedras Negras, Mexico, directly across the border from Eagle Pass, Texas.
In Border Hawk’s latest exclusive report, we delve deeper into how highly-synchronized border crossings by massive groups of illegal migrants are being organized by ‘mysterious hands’ in Mexico.
Migrants typically spend just hours at the shelter in Piedras Negras before they are given GPS coordinates and instructions on where to gather at special points along Rio Grande before storming across the river en masse.
These coordinated crossings usually involve up to 300 migrants and sometimes occur twice a day, on pre-established routes and times.
Border Hawk spoke to migrants who told us they receive information at the shelter about where and when to cross into the U.S.
A migrant named Gilbert videocalled Border Hawk from the shelter and explained that migrants are banned from taking photos or videos while inside.
He told us he had been ordered to join a group heading to the Rio Grande, and that anyone who returned to the shelter would be turned over to Mexican immigration authorities.
