Well a critical situation along the border getting worse.
Last week Fox News reporter the Border Patrol was going to leave huge sections along our southern border simply unprotected.
It blamed the sequester -- its automatic budget cuts.
There is a huge outcry following our story.
Now the -- suddenly found the funds to restore staffing levels and overtime just in the nick of time.
New documents show a massive surge of illegals slipping across the border William La Jeunesse is live in Los Angeles -- more on that William.
But John you know that is not the narrative -- hearing out of the administration which says the border has never been more secure.
And some areas that is true but documents we've obtained suggest and other areas it is not that apprehensions are up overall all in Texas is getting hammered.
We're told that is because illegal immigrants believe if they did and now they will get grandfathered in -- give amnesty -- lawmakers are expected to announce a new immigration reform bill next week.
So take a look at some numbers of nine sectors on the southern border.
Apprehensions are up in for roughly equal in two and down in three.
But the total arrested is actually up by 30000 knocked down reversing a five year trend that increase not from Mexico but Honduras.
El Salvador and Guatemala.
Now look at these emails.
From border officials in Texas.
This comes from this following -- this past Saturday the Rio Grande Valley is boiling over.
Not sure if you -- last detention report but we have approximately 700 ready to go.
And another thousand illegal immigrants to be -- that are on process and finally secretary in the -- -- coming to town this is not a good story we want to be telling.
He emails show that these officials want a tent city to hold all the -- illegal immigrants in Texas we also have documents -- a single night in March.
A -- up predator drone spotted groups of 1578.
On the Arizona border and yet by morning just three had been caught.
This all comes as a new survey shows morale following the Border Patrol and the agency now -- you said John rescinding its decision to cut pay.
And -- power in some areas by 20%.
Allegedly because of the sequester so John let me tell you what is different.
In the past when illegal -- -- will be caught they'd -- for voluntary removal rather than spend time in jail but now because this reform bill they are asking for immigration hearing.
And then they would go to jail but there's no better space because sequestered so they're being released what they -- to appear in court.
Then they disappear into the fabric of America they're expecting when that bill is announced the be grandfathered and -- good to go that's the word that the Latino media is putting out.
That's what they believe that's what they're telling agents in these post apprehension interviews and that's why we're seeing this surge in Texas is the soft spot if you will right now on the border.
All the politicians are saying getting into the country illegally does not put you at the front of the line for you know a green card or or for citizenship.
Yeah but but they're gonna have the bill's gonna say at some point you know if you can show -- you've been here for the past two years.
Through document fraud you're going to be able to get a read receipt and say Johnny I've been here for two years -- need to be here now hole.
To prove that you can have been here rather be harder in the future if you're indeed caught.
Then you'd be precluded if you will that's what I think what assistant William want to -- thanks.
