(FOX NEWS) – More than 500 migrants were released Wednesday onto the streets of Texas and New Mexico, U.S. Immigration Customs and Enforcement said, as the government struggles to detain illegal immigrants amid an influx of Central Americans trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border.

The release on Wednesday followed days of other mass releases by the agency in order to prevent migrant families from being detained longer than allowed.

On Christmas Day, the agency released 186 migrants and another 400 were set free two days prior, Las Cruces’ KVIA-TV reported.

More releases are expected, said Ruben Garcia of the Annunciation House, a homeless and refugee shelter in El Paso.

After a similar release Sunday, ICE blamed “decades of inaction by Congress” for limiting its ability to remove families who are in the U.S. illegally.
