Fox News Reporter Bill Melugin out of Los Angeles has been covering the border crisis and tweeted bombshell documents from Border Patrol unearthing the number of illegal immigrants the Biden administration has actually let through the U.S. borders.
Melugin tweeted a copy of the document with the caption “NEW/THREAD: According to Border Patrol documents provided by a source, the federal gov has released over 70,000 illegal immigrants into the U.S. since August 6, including 31,977 released via parole (temp legal status, eligible for work permits). 94,570 released via NTR since 3/20.”
Fox News writes the documents show how large of numbers of immigrants are being released into the U.S. “with little to no oversight, supervision or immediate risk of deportation.” In particular, Biden’s use of “parole” to release migrants is far overreaching.
Former Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott told Fox News the administration is abusing its parole authority. Scott, who worked under Biden, said typically only a handful of parole cases are granted. Biden has released 32,000 under parole.
“As a field chief, I don’t believe I ever approved more than 5 or 10 paroles in a year,” he said. “When I did, I ensured that the alien was monitored continuously and was detained or removed as soon as the circumstances allowed.”
“By law and regulation a parole shall only be granted on a case by case basis and only for significant humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit. Neither of these appear to apply to the current situation,” said Scott, adding that the number of paroles brings into question the review and approval process.
Fox News explains parole allows the migrants a form of legal status and the ability to apply for work permits. Federal law intends the use for parole to be on a case-by-case basis for “urgent humanitarian purposes” and “significant public benefit.”
The 94,570 released via NTR, or a ‘notice to report’ are only required to check in with an ICE office when they get to their final destination, which could be anywhere in the country. “Those who check-in are not deported or detained as their immigration proceedings move forward,” writes Fox News.

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’
At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.
Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”
Speaking on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”
“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”
“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
