BR_Migrant wristbands by Mex cartels

EXCLUSIVE: Border Report has gotten confirmation from a South Texas congressman’s office that Mexican drug cartel are marking their “loads” or smuggling migrants by placing different colored wristbands on them. Red indicates first-time crossers; purple means they can’t try anymore. Most get 3 tries for the money they pay coyotes, or human traffickers to cross the Rio Grande. We got video of the wristbands from migrants apprehended by Border Patrol agents in La Joya, Texas, on April 8, 2021 in South Texas. Also have security experts confirming from a former Border Patrol chief who now teaches at UTEP. (Border Report Video/Sandra Sanchez)
