Officers can then be seen helping women carrying their children up over the embankment, and also placed fabric over the wire to avoid any injuries.
After making it over the border, those who have just crossed can be seen lining up to be processed.
The video was captured on the banks of the Rio Grande near Eagle Pass, Texas, which has been inundated by migrants in recent days.
