Yesterday, Fox News captured Border Patrol agents opening a gate that was locked by the Texas National Guard to stop illegal immigrants.

According to Fox News:
The illegal immigrants were then seen standing outside the gate waiting to be allowed in, with the Texas National Guard watching on. A short time later, Border Patrol agents appeared with a key and opened the door, allowing the migrants to get through and be processed into the U.S. immigration system.

The incident demonstrates the stark contrast in approach between Texas authorities and Customs and Border Protection (CBP). 

Under Gov. Greg Abbott, Texas has surged law enforcement to the border under Operation Lone Star. That included a focus on stopping migrants from entering the U.S. with Texas now returning recently-entered illegal immigrants to the border, and its own border wall construction under way.

Border Patrol agents, meanwhile, have been increasingly made to focus on processing migrants into the interior, with migrants frequently not seeking to escape Border Patrol -- instead seeking them out so they can be processed and quickly released into the U.S.

Border arrests are set to be the highest they've ever been this fiscal year (ending September 30) and surpass 2 million. One study published in 2013 by the Council of Foreign Relations estimated that there is roughly one successful illegal border crossing for every illegal apprehended.
