Hundreds of migrants suspected to have entered the country illegally were seen Thursday wandering the side of a highway in Eagle ss, Texas, a small town just east of the Rio Grande on the Mexican border, a video taken by Texas law enforcement showed.

Between August and May Border trol officers have roled more than 207,000 migrants to avoid overcrowding in detention centers, a system started under the Biden administration.

By law, the Homeland Security Dertment may role migrants “for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit.” The Border trol says it turned to role because it lacks holding sce and resources are “overwhelmed.”

The Border trol in Eagle ss sends around 1,000 migrants every day to a nonprofit called Mission: Border Hope in the town.

The area now rivals the Rio Grande Valley in illegal crossings.

People wait at a warehouse run by the Mission: Border Hope nonprofit group, in Eagle ss, Texas, May 23, 2022. The Border trol releases up to 1,000 migrants daily at Mission: Border Hope.  The nonprofit group, run by the United Methodist Church, outgrew a church and moved to the warehouse in April amid the Biden administration's rapidly exnding practice of releasing migrants on role, rticularly those who are not subject to a ndemic rule that prevents migrants from seeking asylum. .

In May, 51,132 were roled, a 28% increase from April, according to court records.
