A seemingly never-ending line of illegal aliens were caught on camera crossing the Rio Grande into the United States in broad daylight this week, adding to the already record-smashing number of unlawful border crossings seen under the Biden administration.
Fox News’ Bill Melugin shared the video on Twitter, showing hundreds of migrants streaming out of the trees on the Mexico side of the river, wading through the waters with the help of human smugglers, and climbing up on the U.S. shore to turn themselves over to border agents with the expectation that they’ll be allowed to stay.
“One of the most massive single groups we have ever witnessed cross illegally at the border is crossing into Eagle Pass, TX right now,” Melugin reported Wednesday. “The line of people went so far into the trees it’s hard to get a count. Hundreds upon hundreds. Coyotes guiding them in water.”

“There was no Border Patrol on scene when they began arriving, only one TX National Guard humvee. More resources responding now,” he added.
Shortly afterward, as the migrants were being processed by border agents, another, small group emerged from the same place at the Mexican treeline and began crossing the river, once again with the help of coyotes.
As of the end of May, more than 1.5 million illegal aliens had already crossed the U.S. border unlawfully this year alone, with over 1.4 million of those coming across the Southwest U.S. border in between ports of entry. Hundreds of thousands more "got-aways" have been caught on camera, but not caught by border agents.
