President Trump took to social media on Thursday to share a new video taken by the US Border Patrol, which showed a group of approximately 1,036 illegal aliens entering the country in the early morning hours of Wednesday.
Trump called the group “the largest group of illegal aliens ever,” while pressuring Democrats to work with his administration towards increasing border security and fixing the frequently-abused immigration system.
“Democrats need to stand by our incredible Border Patrol, and finally fix the loopholes at our Border!” said Trump.
Yesterday, Border Patrol agents apprehended the largest group of illegal aliens ever: 1,036 people who illegally crossed the border in El Paso around 4am. Democrats need to stand by our incredible Border Patrol and finally fix the loopholes at our Border! pic.twitter.com/6K1rIUzorM

Trump supporters agreed, with many pointing out that the mainstream media, both nationally and locally, did not report on the large number of illegal aliens detained.
Democrats care more about future voters than the safety of Americans, the safety of Illegals, or the safety of our Border Patrol agents. Only the most ignorant & foolish can’t see that! Thanks @POTUS for doing your best for this Nation. If only Dems cared as much as you do…

A lot of Mexicans from Juarez work in El Paso because the minimum wage is so low there. We haven’t heard this in the news here.

Why is this not reported by any El Paso news outlets? I would think the apprehension of 1000+ people would be newsworthy.
