(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) A group of illegal migrants from Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua broke out of a Border Patrol bus on Wednesday and now are somewhere in El Paso, Texas.
The Daily Caller reported that the group of illegal immigrants that were bound for expulsion under Title 42 with other 18 illegals escaped from the bus at the Stanton bridge commuter crossing by kicking open a hatch in the bus. Two Border Patrol agents who requested anonymity confirmed the illegal migrants’ escape.
“As the bus was moving, the migrants opened the top emergency exit hatch and jumped out onto nearby public streets in downtown El Paso, Texas. Immediately thereafter, the Border Patrol Agent driving the bus, pulled over on a nearby street to prevent more migrants from jumping out,” a Border Patrol spokesperson for the sector said.
“This group of migrants were not seeking asylum and were previously encountered in Santa Teresa, N.M. and El Paso, as they attempted to evade arrest. U.S. Border Patrol in the El Paso Sector entered an alert for their arrest after escaping from federal custody.”
According to the Daily Caller, having only one agent accompanying the group was a violation of policy.
“The never-ending disregard to enforce immigration law by the current administration is causing frustration throughout CBP [Customs and Border Protection]. Overcrowded detention facilities and limited transportation is a daily occurrence,” an anonymous Border Patrol agent working in the El Paso sector said.
“Migrants that are still arriving at the southern border from the original surge invitation by the president are becoming impatient with extended processing times and turning frustrations against CBP personnel. Damaging facilities, creating unrest and escaping while in custody are just a glimpse of what this president has allowed into our communities.
