IRL streamer Andy ‘Mexican Andy’ Martin caught over 50 Mexican migrants attempting to break through the border and into the United States of America.

Martin is best known for his appearances on Paul ‘Ice Poseidon’ Denino’s various IRL streams, but also operates his own channel which he broadcasts from.

During a trip to Tijuana, Mexico, Martin went live on his Twitch channel, only to capture a group of Mexican migrants cut through the fence at the border and run into the United States.

The story was eventually picked up by broadcaster ABC News 10, who interviewed the streamer about what he experienced.

Mexican Andy said the experience was “shocking.” There was a border patrol agent in the area, but Martin stated that the officer was “overwhelmed” and “could only do so much” to stop the group who were trying to make a break for the States.

In the clip, Martin can he heard screaming at his chat in shock as people began to flee across the sand, shouting: “Chat, chat, they’re crossing the border,” as they ran into the distance.

“They had scissors, and started cutting the fence,” Martin told the reporter. “Then they cut, and people just started running. [Border Patrol] couldn’t do anything, but they got three ATVs and I think they stopped all of them.”

Border Patrol later confirmed that two groups tried to storm into the United States at one time, and after backup was called by the lone agent on the scene, 53 people were arrested with none believed to have escaped.
