“We now go live to Mario Veneiro, the swim coach for Club Mantarrayas (Club Stingray), who teaches his countrymen that are set to migrate, free of charge,” Univision anchor Borja Voces said.
Veneiro told viewers that “all types of people” join his course and “each day more are added” to his waitlist.
Fellow anchor Carolina Sarassa asked Vaneiro about the process of training migrants to swim across currents.
“Obviously, when people see the Rio Grande it looks very calm, still waters- like a pool. However, there are many currents which are very dangerous. What do you do so that your pool has turbulent waters like those of the Rio Grande and that people truly learn to swim against the current?” Sarassa asked.
“We made a tunnel with some lanes inside the pool, and we placed 10 people with boards on each side, and we created turbulence (by) splashing water on the person going over the channel,” Vaneiro replied.

Border security experts predict the Biden administration’s decision to end Title 42 could lead to a massive surge of illegal immigrants. Title 42 is a policy that allowed border patrol officials to expel migrants caught crossing the border illegally more quickly due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The policy is set to expire on May 23, and many Democrats have voiced opposition to President Biden’s decision.
