Karine Jean-Pierre, the White House press secretary, has recently refuted reports of widespread migrant releases at the border in press conferences. However, FOX LA reporter Bill Melugin has disproven this story by producing video evidence showing dozens, if not hundreds, of undocumented immigrants in central Brownsville, Texas.
Concerning huge releases of migrants, with the help of non-governmental organizations (NGOs), who provide them with travel permits are seen in a video shot near a bus terminal.
According to Melugin’s persistent reports, such large discharges have been happening at this site in Brownsville for well over a year. The occurrence of large releases, contrary to what Jean-Pierre said, is not a new phenomenon but rather a continuous concern.

Hundreds of migrants are reportedly released each day at a parking garage next to the NGO’s headquarters, according to information provided to Melugin by sources within the Border Patrol.
It’s not uncommon for there to be as many as 10 busloads in one day. Melugin spoke with a Venezuelan guy who had crossed the border illegally and been released that morning to show the significance of these releases.
The man said cheerfully that he wasn’t worried about being deported because of the repeal of Title 42, which permits for the removal of migrants due to health concerns. His point was very clear: anyone has a shot at making it in America.
Here is a Venezuelan man who was released this morning after crossing illegally who is all smiles and tells us the end of Title 42 wasn’t an issue for him.— Bill Melugin (@BillFOXLA) May 12, 2023
