The breaking story came courtesy of New York Post reporter Jennie Taer, who shared shocking video of what was happening–some of it in almost real-time.

RedState provided complete coverage of the White House’s attempts to wave away responsibility for the chaos Biden’s policies have created at the border … even, incredibly, trying to block the media from covering the scene of the violent surge:

Now, there’s an update to the story. Taer writes that nine of the marauding illegals have now been charged:

Texas authorities have charged nine migrants for involvment in the assault on National Guard troops and storming of the border in El Paso, Texas, last Thursday a state government source told The Post.

The charges the migrants face include inciting a riot, damage of property of over $2,500 and assault on members of the Guard, the source said. 

Texas authorities first arrested Honduran national Junior Evaristo-Benitez, 21, who is now charged with assault on a public servant, a third-degree felony, according to Texas Department of Public Safety Sgt. Eliot Torres.

Evaristo-Benitez, another of the nine charged, allegedly stomped on a soldier’s knee “purposefully and with malice,” according to Border Report.[…]

While this is great news, it’s just the beginning, according to sources:

Texas authorities are continuing to reviewing the video of the incident to determine which migrants who are in Border Patrol custody to charge.

The state is expected to charge dozens of others with felony or misdemeanor charges, the source said.

The report continues with details on the assaults on the soldiers:

Some of the soldiers who responded to the rush on the border Thursday received treatment at a nearby hospital for their injuries.

“These people were willing to assault military,” the source told the Post. “They were willing to assault law enforcement. They have complete disregard for our laws.”

This is a developing story. RedState will bring you further updates as they become available.
