2K Migrants Released in Texas on ‘Honor System,’ Says U.S. Rep. Cuellar

U.S. Representative Henry Cuellar (D-TX) said thousands of migrants are being released into Texas on the “honor system” without court information or notices to appear.

Rep. Cuellar told Border Report on Sunday that more than 2,000 migrants had been released into South Texas without any court papers. The releases came as Border Patrol agents became overwhelmed by the massively growing numbers of migrant families and children crossing the border.

Breitbart Texas’ Randy Clark first confirmed the practice of releasing migrants without a court date or Notice to Appear on March 21. Since that time, Cuellar says more than 2,000 migrant families have been released into Texas.

On CBS News’ “Face the Nation,” Cuellar told Margaret Brennan, “Some will be returned, but over 2,000 of them have been released into the United States without a Notice to Appear. I emphasize, without a Notice to appear at a immigration court.” The Texas border congressman from Laredo called the move “unprecedented.”

“The family units are being released into the United States,” Cuellar continued. “That’s where the burden of the border communities are felt. The cities, the counties, the NGOs. We’re feeling the brunt of what’s happening with the family units.”
