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.

Border Crisis by the numbers: in January agents seize 500lbs drugs and 70 criminals with outstanding warrants
The first month of 2023 at the southern border is already looking bleak; just take a look at the numbers. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in El Paso, Texas have seized over 500 pounds of hard drugs in January alone.
Additionally, the agency apprehended 62 people they were able to identify as having outstanding arrest warrants. Among the criminals were sex offenders.
The devastating numbers are not surprising, given that in December, the El Paso mayor declared a sate of emergency “after record numbers of people were released onto city streets and sidewalks by the Biden administration” reports The Center Square.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott also “sent 400 National Guard troops to restore order and provide humanitarian assistance” adds the media outlet. Border Patrol data showed in December, 55,766 illegal foreign nationals were apprehended in the El Paso Sector.
There were also 32,632 known and recorded gotaways in December, meaning they were able to evade getting captured by law and immigration officials. law enforcement officers told The Center Square that despite the skyrocket high numbers, “these seizures and apprehensions represent a fraction of the amount of people and drugs being trafficked to the southern border between ports of entry.”
