The speed at which the Biden administration would end former President Donald Trump's policies on immigration came as a surprise, ex-acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan said Friday. 

"This isn't easy for me to say, but I underestimated how fast this administration would completely dismantle every tool, authority, and effective policy that was in place," Morgan said on Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "We are in a new regime where the United States government is encouraging and now facilitating illegal entry."

As numbers of people crossing the border rise, the Biden administration is "creating reception centers for people illegally entering the country to shepherd them into the interior of the United States, never to be heard from again," Morgan added. 

The Washington Post reported this week that family detention centers are expected to transform into rapid processing hubs, which Morgan said will mean that the current administration will be releasing immigrants into the country even faster. 

"We were detaining them, going through a lawful process, and if their claims were determined to be invalid, we were removing them," said Morgan. "If they enter the country illegally now, they'll release them as fast as possible into the United States. We know the vast majority of people once released into the United States don't show up for hearings, or if they do and get a court order to remove them, they don't comply. That's a fact. This administration knows this but they allow people to illegally enter the United States."
