Infowars reporters were detained and disarmed by federal agents Wednesday while reporting near the Texas-Mexico border. Following the encounter, Infowars Joe Biggs explained how he and Michael Zimmermann were disarmed after the pair were taken into custody alongside fellow reporter Alejanda. “We just got out of federal custody… we’ve been there for 2 hours,” Biggs said. Despite previously getting approval from both border patrol and law enforcement to be in the area, federal wildlife officers ordered the crew to put their hands up after encountering them filming a report. After being questioned for hours, Biggs and Zimmermann were told by federal officers that they would need to pay $230 each in order to receive their firearms back. Only hours earlier an entirely separate law enforcement group told the reporters that they would have to leave a different part of the border as well.
