Video uploaded to Twitter by a Fox News correspondent shows U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents escort a large number of illegal immigrants into the country, with reporter Bill Melugin revealing the majority originally came from Haiti – a poverty stricken island nation – and more from West Africa, suggesting they crossed the Atlantic Ocean, wound up in a Central American country, and then made their way to the southern U.S. border where they entered illegally.
“Another group of migrants has just been walked through the border gate into the U.S. here in Del Rio, TX,” wrote Melugin. “Most of the group is from Haiti. Some of the single adult men you see waiting in the back tell me they’re from Senegal, a country in West Africa. It’s non-stop.” A quick search reveals that the distance from Senegal in West Africa to Del Rio, Texas, in North America, is 5,518 miles. If these migrants had flown to the United States legally, it would have taken over 11 hours for them to arrive.

Texas gubernatorial candidate Allen West, who is challenging embattled Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for the Republican Party’s nomination for governor in 2022, was also at the scene according to Melugin. “Allen West is here in Del Rio touring the border,” wrote Melugin. “West tells me he would immediately fully mobilize the TX National Guard, shut down the border, tax illegal immigrants’ remittances, & designate cartels as terror orgs.”
The video of this latest crossing, showing the illegal immigrant crisis has now become transatlantic, comes after Tucker Carlson exposed the Biden regime for using Laughlin Air Force Base in Texas to transport illegal immigrants across the United States, all under Abbott’s watch. “We know it’s happening there because a man called Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Burrows sent his subordinates an email spelling it out very clearly,” said Carlson, who then quoted from the email: “‘Over the next few days, weeks or months you may see passenger aircraft on our ramp transporting undocumented non-citizens. Please review the attached public affairs guidance on the issue.’ Burrows’ email then instructed uniformed military personnel to hide what was happening on the base from the country they’re sworn to serve. Quote, ‘do not take photographs, and refrain from posting anything on social media.’”
The overwhelming illegal immigrant crisis spans several states, with Arizona Sen. Wendy Rogers recently remarking that “We are being replaced” after learning that over 730,000 have illegally crossed into the United States under Joe Biden’s regime. When she received push back from the mainstream media, Rogers shot back, “We Americans who love this country are being replaced by people who do not love this country. I will not back down from this statement.”
