Bill Melugin shared video from the Rio Grande that he reports shows “masses of hundreds” of migrants walking across the river from Mexico and streaming into the U.S. illegally.

“I am absolutely stunned,” he tweeted.

On the video, Melugin says:

“It’s a never-ending stream. Hundreds of people crossing the Rio Grand — basically every hour. And they’re heading over to the international bridge, which you can see in the background. This is why the situation under the bridge continues to deteroriate. This is insane. The federal government has to wake up.”
