Truckers and other motorists with the “Take Our Border Back” convoy protest have started to filter into Texas ahead of a planned rally in Eagle Pass on Saturday. Additional rallies are planned for major border entry points in San Diego, California and Yuma, Arizona.
Protesters have come from as far away as Jacksonville, Florida and Virginia Beach in order to raise awareness about the ongoing border crisis that has led to record numbers of illegal aliens flowing into the country. The event is geared towards educating the public on the crisis and pressuring lawmakers to take action, with some protesters coming from as far away as Canada, according to event organizers.
On Saturday morning, on-the-ground reporter Brendan Gutenschwager and Rebel News obtained footage of protesters arriving in arriving at Cornerstone Children’s Ranch in Quemado, Texas, which is located less than two miles from the U.S. border with Mexico. The convoy included 18-wheelers, RV’s, pick-up trucks and other vehicles, many of which were decorated with American flags.
