Migrants in Texas indicted for alleged border breach following dismissal of charges by judge

A grand jury in Texas indicted over 140 migrants on misdemeanor rioting charges stemming from an alleged attempt to breach the U.S.-Mexico border in El Paso. The incident occurred in April and no injuries were reported. Following a judge throwing out the charges against those arrested, the grand jury decided there was sufficient probable cause for the riots. The El Paso County District Attorney defended the decision, stating the citizens essentially overruled the judge’s ruling. The arrests have brought attention to Texas’ border operations led by Governor Greg Abbott, who has deployed additional National Guard members. If convicted, the migrants could face jail time and fines, and may still face federal charges.
