Editor’s note: This article has been updated with new information.

Stunning video footage appears to show a United States Army soldier opening a gate and allowing a large crowd of illegal immigrants across the border onto private property in Texas.

The horde of illegal immigrants are then picked up by a bus and whisked away.

Clips of the incident were posted on social media by Fox News national correspondent Bill Melugin, who has provided updates on the soldier.

Further, Texas State Troopers blocked the border crossing, simply using an SUV. The difference between the federal government and Texas is striking.

Of the initial incident, Melugin reported, “Security video from a contact in Eagle Pass, TX shows a large group of migrants crossing illegally onto private property this morning,” he wrote.

“I asked the Texas National Guard if this is one of their soldiers who opens the gate for the group of migrants,” he wrote in a follow-up post.

Officials told Melugin that the soldier was “under orders” from the federal government and working with the Border Patrol. Border Patrol agents would technically be the only ones with the authority to open the gate.

Soldier Opens Gate at Border For Illegal Immigrants

President Biden over the weekend mocked critics of the humanitarian crisis at the border following the end of Title 42 as initial numbers actually suggest a drop in illegal crossing during the first few days.

“Much better than you all expected,” Biden said to reporters about the state of the border while riding his bicycle.

The numbers are expected to rise as human and drug smugglers navigate the post-Title 42 landscape.

The invasion is going as planned if we now have Army soldiers or Border Patrol opening the gates and letting illegals into the country. Why bother having a fence if the gate is constantly open?

One source told the New York Post that the above video is not unusual since the migrants were already on American soil despite being on the opposite side of the fence initially.

That said, it’s reportedly private property. Did the land owner authorize the opening of the gate, or did the military or border patrol do so on their own? Remember, Melugin states the soldier was “under orders from the federal (government).”

Abbott Orders Gate to be Blocked

In a subsequent post, Melugin reveals an image from the following day showing a Texas State Trooper vehicle blocking the same gate.

“(Texas Department of Public Safety) is blocking the gate today as Gov. Abbott continues his much stricter effort to have TX soldiers and troopers physically block and repel illegal crossings,” he writes.

Melugin points out that there is a vast difference in how state and federal officials are dealing with illegal immigrants.

It’s unclear where the bus is taking the illegal immigrants in the above video. Not that it matters. Abbott has been playing political games by shipping them to so-called sanctuary cities. Whether it is the federal government or Texas officials, these hordes of illegals are being shipped all across the country.

They should be shipped out of the country.

This has been happening since at least August of 2022. The Political Insider reported on another video at that time showing Border Patrol agents opening a gate at a “major crossing area” in the same exact area of Eagle Pass, Texas.

Abbott responded to the video calling it “unbelievable.”

“While Texas secures the border, the federal government is enabling illegal immigration,” he said.

Now it appears to have shifted from ‘unbelievable’ to routine.
