Mexican immigration officials tried to force migrants off a cargo train arriving in a city along the U.S. border during a wild scene caught on camera, according to reports.

On Friday, Mexican journalist Pedro Ultreras published footage on social media purportedly showing authorities trying to eject a group of migrants from the top of train car near Piedras Negras, Coahuila, located directly across from Eagle Pass, Texas.

“Agents from the Mexican Immigration Institute [INM] try to force dozens of migrants off the train they call ‘The Beast,'” Ultreras explained in a post on social media.

“In the video you can see a uniformed woman caning a migrant. The train is stopped near Piedras Negras border with Eagle Pass, TX.”

It is unclear what transpired before or after the incident, but it aligns with other reports indicating Mexican authorities are continuing a relative crackdown on illegal migration that kicked off around the beginning of 2024.

A female migrant recently complained to border reporter Auden Cabello that Mexico has been the most difficult country for her to traverse during her journey to the U.S.

“Why is Mexico the only country that won’t let us advance? Every other country helps us,” the woman said.

“We’re not moving until Mexican Immigration guarantees they won’t bother us or they help us advance to the border.”

Cabello asserts that what some are calling the “Authentic Border Wall” — Mexican enforcement — is actually working, to a degree.

“Mexican Immigration still has operations in states like Zacatecas, Durango, Coahuila and Chihuahua trying to stop or slow down the migrant flow on freight trains,” Cabello says.
