What happens to the illegal immigrants caught crossing the border? That question was answered with the release of this video, captured at the Laredo, Texas, Greyhound bus station over the weekend.
Hector Garza, a Border Patrol agent and spokesperson for the National Border Patrol Council Local 2455 spoke with Breitbart News about how the federal government is handling the influx of people pouring over the border.
“The majority of these people crossed the border illegally and were then dropped off here at the bus station, so they could continue to their final destination, and that destination is an American city near you,” said Garza.
“This right here is border insecurity at its best. Our border is not patrolled, it's not being secured... our federal government is releasing thousands and thousands of illegal aliens into our communities.”
According to Garza, the bus tickets they are issued are paid for by taxpayer money. The illegal immigrants are also issued notices to appear in court at a future date. Approximately 95% of them never return for court proceedings.
Here's a look at what it's like inside the station:
First-hand accounts show that this problem is more massive than perhaps the rest of the country has realized. Our federal government needs to take action - but not this. Just about anything but this.
