On Black Friday, a group of Americans witnessed over a dozen illegal aliens crossing the Rio Grande.

A Harlingen couple, who asked reporters in the video below to conceal their identities, said they and others around them were outraged at what they were witnessing.

What was more shocking to the couple is nobody was stopping them...

"I noticed two, what appeared to be males in the water there," the husband explains. "I guess on the west side of the bridge headed northbound from the Mexico side of the water."

Caught on video by the couple, men crossing the river with a line, which they tied up on opposite sides. They used the line to move the boat instead of using oars to cross.

The couple was once again shocked when they allegedly noticed a U.S. Border Patrol vehicle pass by. However, the way agents responded surprised them even more.

"I tried to get his attention and he went 20 yards down the river," the husband said. "He just turned around and went back."

According to the couple, the illegals were about to reach the U.S. border when Border Patrol passed.

Border Patrol did not stop, according to them.

The couple said over 20 illegal aliens crossed the river in a makeshift raft.

The raft went back and forth twice to get everyone across -- and in all that time, with Border Patrol boats nearby, they were NOT apprehended. link for full article...

If the border patrol stopped them Obama would probably punish them.

Big deal. So somebody filmed them. Happens every day.

Every day the same takes place and still nothing happens. The border patrol is either under orders to ignore or being paid off.

Some day they will be successful in bringing in a nuke across the river or the desert. Wait for it. It will happen.

Laws only apply to obastard’s enemies. He and his thug buddy atty general only prosecute when it is convenient. That would be you and me or didn’t you know that?

When I went down to Matamoros/Brownsville Texas I watched guys cross the Rio Grande yards away from the border agents and no one seemed to care. This was in the late 90’s.

I watched them cross on an inner tube, pulled by a young boy, in sight of the crossing station. We were standing on the bridge to Juarez, watching, and they crossed as long as we stood there. Nobody seemed interested. This was in 1990.
