More than 150 migrants, including Albanians and more than a dozen Romanians, illegally crossed the US border on Saturday morning.
According to Fox News national correspondent Bill Melugin, who was at the scene as border patrol officers worked to round up migrants who crossed, the group, which included several minors, entered a location in La Joya, in Texas, after crossing the Rio. Big.
Melugine reported that the “big bulk” of migrants who entered illegally on Saturday morning were from South America, but noted that migrants from various regions were also included in the group.
Melugin also said more migrants are expected to arrive.

An image shared by Melugin from the Fox News drone at the border revealed that migrants were bypassing an incomplete border wall that was under construction under the administration of former President Trump.
“As you can see on our drone, once they cross the Rio Grande, they walk around the incomplete border wall,” Melugin said.

When President Biden took office in January, his administration ordered an immediate halt to construction of a 30-foot-high border fence, leaving a gaping hole in one of the most vulnerable sections of the American-Mexican border.
The construction halt resulted in more than $ 100 million in border wall materials that are wasted in Texas. Melugin reported that there was enough steel for more than 100 miles of border wall, but only about 14 miles were built before construction was completed once the Trump administration left office.
Biden’s former border security chief Rodney Scott said at the time of the discovery of the materials that the United States was paying $ 5 million per day for border contracts that were pending, meaning that under President Biden the United States paid for a construction that is not finished.
