Guatemalan authorities are warning the U.S. of new migrant caravans headed to our southern border ahead of the midterms.
Former Texas DPS captain Jaeson Jones told NewsMax we're already seeing a surge as the U.S. tries to convince Mexico of keeping asylum seekers until they can face an immigration judge.
"While the politics play out, the truth is the wave of people is surging into El Paso. As this cold front hits and we go into the winter months, get ready, El Paso is the place to keep your eyes on along the southwest border," he said.
Jones points to the rock-throwing Venezuelans confronted by Border Patrol this week.
"They're now saying they're going to start deporting Venezuelans, so that's adding to that pressure we're talking about. That's why most of the people who were assaulting this agent were all Venezuelans and Hondurans, because they're hearing that."
Jones says more than 187,000 Venezuelans have been arrested at the border this past fiscal year, compared to just 2,700 a year earlier.
