Footage obtained by Fox News in the Rio Grande Valley shows Border Patrol shedding off bus-loads of migrants at McAllen Central Bus Station, where they are provided bus tickets to travel out of town after they are treated and released from custody with notices to appear at a court or Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility.
At least four bus loads of migrants were left off at McAllen’s station on Saturday in what is the latest indication of the huge number of border collisions in June.
More than 188,000 migrants were confronted in June. Encounters of family units, meanwhile, rose by 25% to 55,805 from 44,746 in May. While some are being delivered via Title 42 public health protections, many more are being processed and eventually released into the U.S.
Republicans have slammed the answer to what they call "catch-and-release" and accused the Biden administration’s rollback of several Trump-era policies like the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) -- which kept aliens in Mexico as they expected their hearings.
The Biden administration characterized such policies as evil, and has instead accused "root causes" like poverty, climate change and violence in Central America for the surge. It has directed on more efficiently preparing migrants and releasing them into the heart, while still returning single adults via the Trump-era Title 42.
The New York Post stated that the four bus companies that work out of McAllen’s central bus station are fighting to keep up with business due to the amount of illegal immigrants being released into the U.S.
City Manager Roy Rodriguez told The Post that the need for tickets was at a "record" high" with most of the increase coming from migrants who had come into the country illegally -- leading to setbacks.
The center now holds a record average of 7,000 people a week, with about half leaving by bus and the rest by airplane, the Post reported.
The polls have not been generous to Vice President Kamala Harris as of now, with the Real Clear Average of surveys now placing her at a low favorability of 44.3 percent — notably lower than her unfavorability of 46.3 percent.
The drop in content with the veep comes after several weeks of bad news cycles encompassing her handling of the border crisis and reports of disharmony and dysfunction in her office.
Harris’ numbers lag way behind those of her boss, Joe Biden, who boasts a 51.8 percent approval rate, compared to 42.8 percent who disapprove of his job performance according to the RCP average.
