WATCH: CBP Shares Video of ARMED Cartel Helping Migrants Illegally Cross Border

On Tuesday, US Border Patrol released a startling video showing a group of armed men, believed to be involved with Mexican cartels, “escorting” a mother and son to the US-Mexico border, near Arizona.

The shocking video clearly reveals that the men are armed with assault rifles and equipped with what appears to be paramilitary gear.

While details remain scarce, the heavily armed men in the video are definitively shown helping others to cross over the existing barrier, as well as coming onto US soil, themselves, while carrying assault rifles.

Social media commenters were infuriated, and demanded action while condemning Congress for its continued failure to address the growing problem.

Many urged Border Patrol agents and US military personnel in the area to use extreme caution.
