Illegal Immigrants Released onto Streets of El Paso
Federal and non-profit migrant facilities are reaching capacity, causing immigrants to spill out into downtown El Paso, Texas. We must pray that this crisis is resolved before it gets any worse.
From New York Post. About 100 immigrants claiming asylum were released into downtown El Paso, Texas, Sunday as federal facilities and nonprofit migrant shelters reach capacity in the border city, according to the El Paso Times.
The migrants were released before dawn, and some quickly made plans to travel on to other cities, while others lingered on the streets of El Paso or at the airport — too broke to leave or book a hotel….
Sunday’s release is the first time immigrants have been sent into the streets of the west Texas city since 2019, during a separate surge of immigrants at the border….
The Biden administration plans to end Title 42 on May 23. However, Texas and other states are suing to block the lifting of the policy. The states are asking the courts to keep Title 42 in place, arguing that they are not equipped to handle the possible 18,000 immigrants a day that could come to the border once Title 42 is removed….
Meanwhile, the El Paso Times reports that Border Patrol resources in the city are maxed out, with agents detaining more than 1,000 immigrants a day despite only having enough room to house 1,700 people….
