Hundreds of immigrants came across the Mexico border into the United States last week by using specific "key words."
About 200 immigrants entered the U.S. via the Otay Mesa, California crossing by saying they had a "credible fear" of the drug cartels, notes My Fox Phoenix.
There were so many immigrants claiming "credible fear" that the overflow crowds had to be handled by U.S. Border Agents out by vans.
"They are being told if they come across the border, when they come up to the border and they say certain words, they will be allowed into the country. We are being overwhelmed," stated an anonymous source with the U.S. Border Patrol (video below).
"This will swamp the system. To make our system even more ridiculous than it has been in the past. There are no detention facilities for families, so the family would have to be split up. We don't want to split families up, so we end up releasing people out into the community on bond, on bail. It's a huge loophole," added Pete Nunez, former U.S. Attorney and immigration expert.
"There has to be a policy change, something implemented, an emergency implementation that will stop this, or otherwise we will have thousands coming in."
