Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley Sector of the U.S.-Mexico border have encountered 25 groups of more than 100 migrants this year alone, according to a Monday press release,

Over the weekend, the situation was no different as McAllen Border Patrol Station agents encountered large groups of migrants from El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Mexico, and Belize. On Saturday, agents near Havana, Texas encountered a group of over 145 migrants. Later that day, a group of 108 migrants was apprehended near La Joya, Texas.

On Sunday, border patrol agents near Hidalgo, Texas arrested a group of 116 people, bringing the weekend total to nearly 300 family members and unaccompanied minors.

The announcement comes as migrants continue to surge the border overwhelming Border Patrol agents. On Sunday, Fox News confirmed that Border Patrol in the Rio Grande Valley Sector had begun releasing migrants without a Notice to Appear (NTA), or a court date. Processing migrants and providing them with court dates for their asylum claims typically takes hours, according to the report.

CBP encountered 100,000 migrants in February and as the surge continues, many of the detention facilities have gone over capacity.

Kyle Rittenhouse Found ‘Not Guilty’ On All Counts

Rittenhouse

After three and a half days of deliberation, the jury acquitted Kyle Rittenhouse on all counts. “Jurors in the polarizing case said they had voted to acquit Rittenhouse, 18, of homicide, attempted homicide and other charges related to the August 2020 shootings in Kenosha, Wisconsin” reports The Washington Post.

Rittenhouse testified during the trial during which he  became so emotional he was unable to speak in between sobs as he attempted to describe the shootings. The judge called a brief recess for Rittenhouse to regain composure.

“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Rittenhouse said on the stand. “I defended myself.”

National Review reports “As the verdict was announced, Rittenhouse, overwhelmed with emotion, burst into tears and dropped to the ground, struggling to breathe. After collecting himself, he embraced the defense counsel who represented him throughout the trial.”

Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time, shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and injured Gaige Grosskreutz, who was 26 at the time. Rittenhouse testified that he fired in self-defense and pleaded not guilty to all counts.

National Review reports:

“Rittenhouse was arrested on August 26, 2020, after shooting three people during the riots that followed the police killing of Jacob Blake, a black man who was brandishing a knife and in the process of violating a restraining order when police arrived on scene.

He was initially indicted on charges of first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, attempted first-degree intentional reckless homicide, failure to comply with an emergency order from a local government, and possession of a dangerous weapon.”
