Illegal aliens continue pouring across the Rio Grande following the tragic death of a National Guard soldier who drowned during a rescue in the river last week.

Authorities and reporters are observing “constant illegal crossings” of the border river as migrants from around the world force their way into the United States.

In many cases, illegal aliens are hurling themselves into the dangerous currents with little regard for their own safety or that of others whom they may endanger by their actions.

Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin has posted a stunning collection of footage from the Texas-Mexico border in recent days.

“Mexican authorities are on the opposite shoreline trying to physically stop migrants from entering the river today. This woman slipped by them. Moments before this, they pulled up in an unmarked white car and tried to stop another group. All are crossing into TX now,” Melugin reported after one such incident on Monday.

“Right in front of Mexican police, a group of migrants w/ children just came running down to the riverbank and jumped into the Rio Grande & are crossing illegally into Eagle Pass, TX. Some began yelling. Mexican police were able to stop the other part of the group,” Melugin reported on Sunday.

“Two U.S. Border Patrol boats had to come rescue part of the group who couldn’t make it across. Agents were yelling at the migrants to give them the children, but they kept refusing. THIS is what sucks up BP resources. While this is happening, that’s two boats tied up.”

Others are also documenting chaos on the river, including Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX), who joined Customs and Border Protection officers patrolling the Rio Grande on Monday.

“Took a stop while boating down the river with @CBP to climb up where 50-100 had just crossed in Eagle Pass, Texas… all enriching cartels & overwhelming CBP while dangerous felons & potential terrorists walk in & [Texas] ranchers live in fear,” Congressman Roy tweeted along with video of a large group of illegals walking into Texas amid piles of trash and clothing.

Illegal crossings of the Rio Grande have frequently proven fatal for migrants, as Infowars has reported.

On Friday, a Texas National Guard member went missing while attempting to rescue migrants who “appeared to be drowning while crossing the river from Mexico into the U.S.” near Eagle Pass, the Texas Military Department said in a statement.

The migrants ultimately survived and were later found to be suspected drug traffickers.

However, the American soldier lost his life during the heroic act.

The body of 22-year-old Texas Army National Guard Specialist Bishop E. Evans was reportedly recovered near Eagle Pass on Monday following an extensive search.

“Our National Guard soldiers risk their lives every day to serve and protect others, and we are eternally grateful for the way SPC Evans heroically served his state and country,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement on Monday.
