Eagle Pass, TX. (KGNS) - New drone video shows migrants wading past the floating barrier installed by the State of Texas in the Rio Grande to curb migration into the U.S.

The video shot on Thursday shows migrants wading around the buoys and then climbing through concertina wire installed along the riverbank.

The floating fence is part of Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s Operation Lone Star to deter illegal border crossings.

The U.S. Justice Department announced that it is suing Texas over the 1,000-foot-long barrier, claiming it violates federal law.
