Former Buffalo ICE Field Office Director, Tom Feeley, implied that President Joe Biden’s ICE headquarters could be pressuring local field offices to ‘catch and release’ migrants deep into the United States.
Feeley suggested the massive migrant rush is causing an increase in transports of migrants from the border to other American cities, making room for more bodies at the border as they congregate, particularly those near Del Rio, Texas, Fox News reported.
The wave of migrants crashing illegally onto American soil has overwhelmed ICE and likely increased the need to transport migrants to other cities, such as Harrisburg, Denver, Yakima, NYC, and Minneapolis (by way of iAero Airways, a government contractor). It’s being touted as ‘catch and release’ on a grander scale.
“It’s happening on a grand scale,” Feeley noted, according to Fox News. “They’re getting pounded every day fielding calls from headquarters about who they can release to make room for more people on the border. And the following week, they’re getting more calls almost daily, again, about who can you release to make room for more people on the border.”
Feeley continued, saying that “we’re catching them at the border, shipping them into the interior, releasing them and getting more and then releasing them and then getting more and releasing them.”
Just last week, Sen. Ted Cruz revealed startling video showing 10,000+ migrants under a bridge at the border in Del Rio, Texas. Cruz slammed the Biden administration for allowing the humanitarian problem to worsen, likening it to a crisis. Cruz tagged it with #BidenBorderCrisis and prompted over 31,000 reactions.
The migrants began setting up tents after they illegally entered the United States and appear to be staying put as Biden’s ICE tries to contain them and develop a plan or solution to the crisis, as pointed out by Ted Cruz.
I am on the ground in Del Rio, Texas tonight. As of this moment, there are 10,503 illegal aliens under the Del Rio International Bridge.

Vice President Kamala Harris also faces high levels of scrutiny after being tapped as the ‘border czar’ but allowing the situation to consistently worsen.
Criticism for Harris comes from both sides of the political spectrum as even an MSNBC host asked where she has been.
“How about the message from our vice president? Where is she? She was supposed to be in charge of all of these migration issues, going to those Northern Triangle countries that’s obviously not Haiti,” Stephanie Ruhle said.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas claims they processed about 6,500 migrants in just a few days, sending some of them back to Haiti or other locations. Mayorkas suggests there might be several flights per day transporting migrants out, but that doesn’t negate the flights sending migrants into various cities in America.
Mayorkas further stated: “We are very concerned that Haitians that are taking this very irregular migration path are receiving false information that the border is open or that temporary protective status is available. I want to make sure that it is known that this is not the way to come to the United States. That is false information.”
Mayorkas’ critics might ask why some migrants are being sent to American cities instead of being flown back to their homeland.
