A video released by Bill Melugin, the national correspondent for Fox News, seems to depict a U.S. soldier opening a gate on private property in Texas so illegal immigrants can pass.
“Security video from a contact in Eagle Pass, TX shows a large group of migrants crossing illegally onto private property this morning. Crossings have been down big in Texas last few days, but are expected to rise again as cartels/smugglers figure out the post T42 border,” Melugin wrote.
“I asked the Texas National Guard if this is one of their soldiers who opens the gate for the group of migrants. They tell me she is NOT a TX soldier & is not TX ARNG. I’m told she is a Title 10 soldier from the Missouri ARNG under orders from the federal gov & working w/ BP,” Melugin added.
It seems that the Biden regime is making significant efforts to enable the entry of illegal immigrants into the country and make crossing the border as easy as possible.
As reported by New York Post:
In just over a minute, dozens of people casually walk through the opening — with others still slowly walking toward it as the clip ends.
As they enter, a small craft watches from the river, which Melugin said was the Border Patrol.
The same female soldier who appeared to have opened the gate then comes back into the frame, calmly watching the new arrivals as a white bus pulls up with another vehicle behind.
Melugin said the clip, from early Monday, “shows a large group of migrants crossing illegally onto private property.”
However, once on US soil, migrants cannot be turned away, with the law being broken when they enter the country, before reaching the gate.
The Texas National Guard denied the soldier was one of its troops — instead saying it was “a Title 10 soldier from the Missouri [Army National Guard]” under orders from the federal government and working with the Border Patrol, Melugin tweeted.
US Northern Command said that its service members are stationed at the border only in support of Border Patrol, whose agents would be the only ones able to open the gate.
