Fox News Reporter Catches it All On Video: Border Control Conducting ‘Mass Release’ of Illegal Immigrants

U.S. Border Patrol agents are apparently “mass releasing” illegal immigrants out of Texas to destinations across the country.

Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin took to Twitter to share images and videos of buses and vans transporting illegal immigrants out of a local bus station in McAllen, Texas, to destinations across the nation.

Melugin tweeted, “We are witnessing the mass release of migrants in downtown McAllen today. Border Patrol buses and vans are pulling up every 15 minutes.”


He added, “Agents tell us it’ll be happening all day long. Hundreds released so far. Most going to the McAllen bus station. BP overwhelmed.”

Melugin tweeted, “Large groups of migrants being walked to McAllen Central Bus Station by a local Catholic Charity after they were dropped off & released by Border Patrol. This is happening every hour. Migrants are given bus tickets wherever they want to go.”

Another tweet featuring video footage added, “All morning long we’ve watched Border Patrol drop off multiple bus loads of migrants at a Catholic charity in downtown McAllen, where they are given food & shelter before they take buses and flights across the United States. Buses arriving every 30 minutes so far.”

Melugin also added additional reporting from Fox News’ Griff Jenkins, tweeting, “Per DHS sources, local Border Patrol stations in McAllen area are currently 585% over capacity and there are “mass releases” underway. @GriffJenkins reports there were more than 8,000 apprehensions in RGV over the weekend, and more than 3,000 in the last 24 hours.”

Texas GOP Gov. Greg Abbott is going after the Biden administration and accusing them of creating a “constitutional crisis” at the U.S.-Mexico border.



Abbott responded to a letter from Attorney General Merrick Garland that told him that his order was not enforceable and he must rescind it.

“The Biden Administration has created a constitutional crisis between the federal government and the State of Texas,” he said, The New York Post reported.

“This stems from the Biden Administration’s refusal to enforce immigration laws and allow illegal immigrants with COVID-19 to enter our country,” Abbott said.

He said that his state is being “overrun and overwhelmed” by the record number of migrants and that “cartels and smugglers profit off the chaos.”

“Not only that, but this crisis also extends beyond the border as deadly drugs like fentanyl infiltrates our communities,” the governor said.

“This already dangerous situation continues to deteriorate as the Biden Administration knowingly imports COVID-19 into Texas from across the border—willfully exposing Texans and Americans alike,” he said.

“I have the authority, and duty, under the constitutions of the United States and of Texas to protect Texans and our nation,” he said.

“I also have the authority under long-established emergency response laws to control the movement of people to better contain the spread of a disaster, such as those known to have COVID-19,” he said.

“However, the Constitution does not allow the Biden Administration to fabricate its own immigration laws,” he said.

“Worse, the Biden Administration is knowingly admitting hundreds of thousands of unauthorized migrants, many of whom the federal government knows full well have COVID-19,” the governor said.

“To be clear, the Biden Administration is knowingly importing COVID-19 into Texas from across the border and knowingly exposing Texans and Americans to that disease,” he said.
