WHAT WE KNOW:
Border Patrol agents are being overwhelmed with a surge of migrants in parts of Texas and have had to restart “catch-and-release” policies, turning people loose into the U.S. as the first signs of a migrant surge emerge under President Biden.
USBP agents at an immigration checkpoint stopped 2 human smuggling attempts in commercial vehicles within a day of each other, leading to the arrest of 138 individuals, including a convicted sex offender, as well as 2 U.S. citizen drivers.
