JERICKA DUNCAN: Well, a chaotic scene today at the border in El Paso. Video shared by The New York Post shows a group of migrants pushing past Texas National Guard troops and rushing through a razor wire fence. In an exclusive interview with CBS News, Border Patrol Chief Jason Owens says the U.S. needs tougher policies to deter illegal crossings. 

JASON OWENS: Naturally, they’re going to choose to come between the ports of entry. We need to take that off the table and make sure everybody is coming through the front door, through the port of entry. 

DUNCAN: Texas Governor Greg Abbott says authorities quickly regained control and reinforced the barrier.
