Migrants brazenly attacked a fence near a check point on the Mexican side of the border this weekend as a group of Americans watched in astonishment.

Twitter user Theodore Mosby was in line trying to get back into the US when three individuals could be seen prying at a barrier near Calexico, California.
“Man, they’re really trying, aren’t they?” he said as the individuals were attempting to break through. They didn’t seem concerned about the line of cars waiting to cross, or the vehicles passing just feet away from them.
“Wow, they’re really like, dedicated,” he said, as they continued to attack the wall.
Mosby went on to say he hopes President Trump retweets his video.
The Calexico area is a dangerous one for Americans.
In June, a Border Patrol agent was wounded after an illegal alien pelted him in the head with a rock.
The Customs and Border Protection El Centro tweeted several pictures of the agent and his vehicle, showing a shattered window and a gash above his left eye.

The agent was patrolling the border near Calexico when he was hit.
He appeared to be in a hospital receiving treatment. The agency also tweeted a photo of the large jagged rock that struck the officer.
Agents have told The American Mirror vehicles patrolling near the border have been fitted with mesh and steel bars to foil rock throwers. That apparently wasn’t the case with this agent’s vehicle.
From 2006 to 2016, there had been 7,542 agents assaulted in the line of duty, according to CNS News.
Thirty had died while protecting the border from 2003 to 2016.
