Breitbart Texas is told by a senior official at Customs and Border Protection that no substantive planning is being made to address the anticipated surge in immigration once Title 42 has been lifted pursuant to a court order. According to the source, Mexican immigration authorities have already begun dismantling migrant camps along the border.
Sources say that Border Patrol sector officers have been told to be prepared for the influx of migrants by looking into additional detention facilities, and working closely with nongovernmental agencies in order to provide shelter space. According to the source, most of the resources at the border have been exhausted. The court order also gave a short stay but was not extended enough.
DHS was directed by the District Judge EmmettSullivan to cease using COVID-19 Title 42 authority for expulsion of migrants. This order came into effect on November 15. The judge granted an order of stay to DHS until December 21. “great reluctance”At the request of Biden Administration.
According to a source, DHS has not yet developed a plan for dealing with the anticipated influx. However, Mexican authorities have begun dismantling some rudimentary camps to allow Venezuelans to cross the border to Mexico. One camp housing hundreds of migrants in Juarez — opposite El Paso — was razed earlier this week.
After being offered the chance to move to nearby shelters, approximately 500 to 600 predominantly Venezuelans were taken from the camp. A human rights organisation report states that some migrants living in the camp waited for Title 42 to be lifted. Nearly 1,500 migrants were held in the Juarez camp at its height. The camp attracted nearly 1,000 migrants, mostly from Venezuela. They arrived in El Paso on the presumption that Title 42 had been cancelled.
In Piedras Negras – opposite Eagle Pass, Texas – another makeshift camp was dismantled. It was not known how many migrants were living in this camp.
According to a source, Border Patrol officers are currently meeting with county and city leaders in order to prepare for an anticipated influx. However, there have not been any meaningful results. Eagle Pass leaders are concerned that they will not be able to adequately absorb the next influx.
According to a source, at the Border Patrol Processing Facility near Eagle Pass, there is a detention capacity that exceeds 100 percent most days. It costs almost $14 million each month to rent the shelter with soft sides.
Officials in El Paso recently ended a busing programme. A migrant shelter was also shut down by the City until FEMA reimburses them. During a recent El Paso City Council meeting, Deputy City Manager Mario D’Agostino said more than $8 million had been spent on housing, food, and transportation services since July 2022. The city claims it owes federal repayments of $6 million.
Breitbart Texas exclusively reported that Border Patrol agents arrested nearly 206,000 migrants crossing the border from ports of entry. This is nearly 21 percent more than the 167,000 migrants that were apprehended last November.
Breitbart Texas has reviewed reports and found that almost 65,000 migrants were detained in November. According to Title 42 authorities, they were expelled.
