CCTV footage captured what the US Border Patrol call the "largest group of illegal aliens ever encountered" crossing the Mexico-US border, in El Paso on Wednesday morning.

The group, which consisted of 1,036 people, included nationals of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador and was apprehended by US Border Patrol right after the crossing.

People were taken into custody and will stay there until their processing is over.
