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.
Other protesters were seen traveling through Uvalde, Texas enroute to the Eagle Pass rally. They were greeted by protesters waving American flags and Trump signs as truckers honked their horns in acknowledgement.
Event organizers have called on “all active & retired law enforcement and military, Veterans, Mama Bears, elected officials, business owners, ranchers, truckers, bikers, media and LAW ABIDING, freedom-loving Americans” to join in peaceful demonstrations, according to the group’s website.
Rallies are scheduled for 12 p.m. central time in Yuma, Arizona and Eagle Pass, Texas, while the San Diego rally is planned for 9 a.m. pacific time. A number of lawmakers and political leaders are expected to address the crowd, which is expected to grow in size throughout the course of the day.
