Video emerged on social media Thursday apparently showing a group of Central American migrants being escorted across the border by Federal Agents and placed into waiting vehicles operated by Border Patrol.
“NEW: More groups of migrants being walked through the border gate to a waiting Border Patrol van here in Del Rio this morning. This is one of several groups we’ve seen come through today. Our drone team in RGV says 300+ have already crossed in La Joya, TX as of 9am,” posted Fox Los Angeles’ Bill Melugin.

This group of Haitian men just walked through the border gate and turned themselves in to Border Patrol. We have seen hundreds of Haitians arriving here in Del Rio this week. The flow of migrants showing up is almost nonstop every day unless there’s a big storm. @FoxNews pic.twitter.com/KmHcYccLul

BORDER CHAOS: 500 Pounds of Mexican METH Discovered in 'DISNEY' Figurines
The Drug Enforcement Agency discovered over $2 million worth of smuggled Mexican methamphetamines hidden inside Disney character figurines Wednesday; calling the haul the biggest “meth bust” in the Atlanta region.
According to DEA officials, the drugs were hidden inside over 500 figurines meant to look like beloved Disney characters such as Winnie the Pooh and Tigger.
“DEA Atlanta Division Special Agent in Charge Robert Murphy says the meth originated in Mexico and was destined for Atlanta,” writes a local CBS affiliate. “He says another load containing legitimate ceramic figurines was intercepted and is believed to have been intended as a decoy.”
The discovery comes as President Trump pledges to crackdown on human trafficking and drug smuggling at the United States’ southern border; vowing last week to deploy the National Guard to help secure the region.
BORDER CHAOS: 55 Immigrants Discovered in a Single Tractor-Trailer in TEXAS
Nearly 60 individuals -including children- were discovered in San Antonio, Texas late Tuesday evening crammed into a single tractor-trailer; raising serious questions over how the immigrants were able to successfully cross the US-Mexico border.
According to MySanAntonio News, authorities from multiple federal and local agencies descended on the south Texas town Tuesday night after the trailer was discovered in a quiet residential neighborhood.

“This truck was air-conditioned, thank God. This truck had water. So they were hydrated,” said San Antonio Fire Department Chief Charles Hood, adding that at least five immigrants were rushed to a nearby hospital.
