Border Patrol releases video showing 110+ Central American migrants scaling border wall
PHOENIX (FOX 10) -- Officials with the United States Customs and Border Protection in Arizona released a new video showing Central American migrants scaling a border wall in the Yuma sector.
According to a tweet made by officials on the verified Twitter account of CBP Arizona, officials say the migrants were arrested on Monday by Border Patrol agents. In a 55-second long video that was posted, , migrants were seen scaling the wall with the help of a human smuggling suspect who had a ladder. The suspect was then seen hauling the ladder away.
