The crisis at the Sothern Border continues to worsen.
While thousands of illegal immigrants are simply just walking through the Rio Grande river into Del Rio, Texas; others are taking the more difficult route and are going underground in water drainage systems.
In the city of Hidalgo and Brownsville, Texan residents have noticed footprints coming from manholes in their streets.
In response the residents contacted the police and their local fire department who then contacted Border Patrol agents after close to 20 illegal immigrants were found inside of a sewer systems.
In recent days, smugglers in two areas utilized the same dangerous smuggling tactic. #fail

Newswars got the scoop, check out what they had to report:
Border Patrol agents have discovered nearly two dozen illegal aliens inside water drainage systems in multiple Texas cities in recent days, according to reports.
Migrants were caught moving through sewers in Hidalgo and Brownsville this week, and some were pulled through manholes onto the street.
“NOT SO SECRET passages uncovered in two south Texas cities,” Rio Grande Valley Chief Patrol Agent Brian Hastings tweeted on Wednesday.
“Smugglers continue to use dangerous tactics to move migrants across the border.”
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) says agents discovered footprints leading to a drainage pipe in Brownsville on Tuesday.
“The Brownsville Fire Department was requested and responded to assist. Three migrants were apprehended as they exited the drainage system,” CBP explained in a statement.

U.S. Customs and Border Protections covered the story too:
Brownsville Border Patrol Station (BRP) agents encountered shoe prints of three people entering a drainage pipe in Brownsville.
The Brownsville Fire Department was requested and responded to assist. Three migrants were apprehended as they exited the drainage system. The migrants stated that all members of their group were accounted for and were in good health.
On Sept. 29, McAllen Border Patrol Station agents received information that there were suspected migrants traversing the drainage system in Hidalgo.
Agents responded to investigate and requested assistance from the Hidalgo Police Department and Texas Department of Public Safety. In total, authorities arrested 20 migrants who were found to have used the drainage system to enter the country.
If they just walked through the Rio Grande River into Del Rio Texas Biden would’ve given them a free ticket to a city of their choice.
