Townhall’s Katie Pavlich and Guy Benson are out on patrol today with the Texas Department of Public Safety to show us what’s actually going on along the Texas-Mexico border and how agents are coping with the influx of illegal immigrants across the Rio Grande:

According to law enforcement officials briefing Katie and Guy, Mexican cartels are making “$100 million PER WEEK” smuggline people into the United States:

“Brutal Mexican cartels are making $100 million PER WEEK on human smuggling and illegal immigration. They are highly organizing, with systems like wristbands to show payment to cross, and are enabled every hour by open border policies.”

And the $100 million figure is not a typo:

Every wristband means an illegal immigrant paid a cartel member to smuggle them over and there are “countless landing spots” along the U.S. side of the border:

And it’s not just wristbands getting discarded:

Walls work? WHO KNEW!

“A privately-funded (!) wall along another stretch of the river. Officials tell us it’s a strong deterrent in this area, reducing crossings by 90%+ and funneling illegal immigrants elsewhere, making patrols more effective. WH repeated the ‘walls don’t work’ canard yesterday.”

You can follow along with Guy and Katie here and here.
