According to the most recent estimates, over 4.9 million illegal aliens have entered the United States during President Biden’s first 18 months in office. But even more troubling is the criminal nature of these illegals and how certain governments seem to be using the border crisis as a defacto war on America.

On Sunday, Breitbart obtained a report from the border patrol indicating that the government of Venezuela, led by Nicolás Maduro Moros, is releasing prisoners intentionally and sending them to the U.S. border. Among those released are people who have been convicted of murder, rape, and extortion.

More from Breitbart:

The intelligence report warns agents the freed prisoners have been seen within migrant caravans traveling from Tapachula, Mexico, toward the U.S.-Mexico border as recently as July. The source, not authorized to speak to the media, told Breitbart Texas the move is reminiscent of a similar action taken by Cuban dictator Fidel Castro during the Mariel boat lift in the 1980s.

The report does not specify that the release of the convicts — understanding they would head to the United States — could be a purposeful geopolitical move specifically intended to impact U.S. national security. Another information gap cited in the report acknowledges the unknown role the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (SEBIN), Venezuela’s equivalent to the CIA, may have played in the deliberate releases.

The source says the task of identifying Venezuelans who have criminal records in their home country is nearly impossible. Of the thousands of Venezuelan migrants surrendering along the U.S.-Mexico border daily, most, according to the source, are being released into the United States. Without effective diplomatic relations with Venezuela, the source says access to criminal databases in that country simply does not exist.

“Unless we apprehend someone who voluntarily tells us they have committed a violent crime in Venezuela, we can only guess and that doesn’t work well,” the source told Breitbart. “They will more than likely be released.”

The source says it is unknown how many have already been released into the interior of the United States to pursue asylum.

U.S. Representative for Texas’s 22nd congressional district, Troy Nehls, also revealed the news on his Twitter account.

China, Africa, and the Middle East all exploiting open Southern Border.

Entire refugee camps are not being setup at our Southern border, with reports that China, dozens of Middle Eastern Counties and Africa are all sending their unwanted population and criminals in what can only be called an invasion force to enter the Untied States through Mexico.

U.S. federal agents have seized more than 10,500 pounds of the deadly synthetic opioid fentanyl along the U.S. Mexican border this fiscal year, with one border region seeing a shocking 323% increase in the last three years.

Over 105,000 Americans died of drug overdoses in the 12 months that ended this past October, with two out of three linked to fentanyl that is almost all being smuggled across our Southern border by the Chinese.
