EXCLUSIVE: Fox News has learned from a senior source with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) that a plan is under consideration for Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley Sector (RGV) to begin releasing illegal border crossers who claim asylum without issuing a Notice to Appear (NTA) - meaning they will depart custody without a court date.
Such a decision would be unprecedented if enacted and would place the responsibility of seeking an asylum hearing on the migrants through Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or legal assistance.
The source says the reasoning for the decision is that the situation has "become so dire that BP [Border Patrol] has no choice but to release people nearly immediately after apprehension because there is no space to hold people even to do necessary NTA paperwork."

If they don't have the ability to hold them all, then just release them - on the Mexico side of the border.

Proves that dementia Joe is stupid and not fit for office.
Bye Din only approved the plan. His personal appointees came up with it.
Does that not mean Joe is "stupider" ?

And also allow those who want to immigrate legally, to prove they have integrity.
If those 'migrants' had the integrity to immigrate legally, they would have followed the existing laws about immigration to the US. C'mon Man!

Award-winning photojournalist John Moore blasted the Biden administration for giving "zero access" to the media to observe Customs and Border Protection operations at the southern border.
Moore took to Twitter to lament the lack of transparency as a surge of migrants trying to enter the country has put a strain on resources.
"I respectfully ask US Customs and Border Protection to stop blocking media access to their border operations," Moore tweeted Friday. "I have photographed CBP under Bush, Obama and Trump but now - zero access is granted to media.

Somebody needs to study and explain WHY all these poor deprived migrants seem to get ahold of thousands of dollars to pay the cartels for border crossings and travel protections for thousands of miles ???

The Mexican President told Joe if he did that, he'd compel more U.S. companies to move to his country.
What a pushover this guy is.
Well then if the Mexican President says so, better obey, Biden.
