March 12, 2023, was a day like no other in El Paso, Texas. Hundreds of people tried to force their way into El Paso via the Paso Del Norte Bridge located in downtown El Paso. The scene was frantic and served as yet another reminder of a larger issue. Border Patrol agents and other law enforcement agencies did their best to control the situation. There are always people trying to enter the country illegally through El Paso, but in recent years it has never been this chaotic with this mass number of individuals.
The answers to many questions we seek answers, for now, rest in the hands of local city officials, city leaders, state legislators, and those who serve at our border entry points. This should serve as a call to action for the city of El Paso. The upcoming days and weeks will provide vital information on how the city will move forward. Progression must be the focal point.
