Immigration lawyers are being accused of cooking up a scheme to bring more undocumented immigrants into the U.S. by having them claim a "credible fear" of drug cartels in Mexico.

"This is massive fraud, and it's being coached," Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, said Tuesday morning on "Fox & Friends."

"They found out from the immigration lawyers. We know that these people are being coached. We know they're being coached to say certain things," said Stein, whose group wants to see severe restrictions placed on any immigration measures.

According to numerous reports, U.S. border posts in the southwest have been flooded by hundreds of immigrants seeking asylum, using the phrase "credible fear" of drug cartels in Mexico in an effort to enter the United States.

The numbers have been so great that U.S. detention centers are full, and agencies have rented hotel rooms to house some undocumented families during the processing, Fox News reported Monday.

"We don't want people showing up on our border, and certainly not from a contiguous country like Mexico, abusing the system and coming around, jumping the line in fronts of millions of people," Stein said.

"They're supposed to be detained until they can have a hearing. Of course, there is only so much detention space. So now they're trying to put them up in nice hotels, Stein continued.

"For those who do actually get released, however, they're scheduled some day for an immigration hearing, and we know they're probably not going to show up," he added, claiming: "This is a continuation of the Obama administration's attack on our borders, attack on the integrity of our immigration system."
