Texas City Considering State Of Emergency Due To Border Crisis

Border crisis

The border city of El Paso, Texas, is considering declaring a state of emergency over the worsening border crisis, city officials announced Wednesday.

“We are extremely grateful to all our partners including the NGOs, the County, State and Federal leaders who understand the extraordinary collaborative lift that is required,” Deputy City Manager Mario D’Agostino said in a statement.

Just days before the announcement, nearly 100 illegal immigrants were released into downtown El Paso as border facilities reached capacity.

“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,” the New York Post reported.

The news comes as border officials brace for a further surge in illegal immigration as a result of President Biden administration’s plan to end Title 42, a Trump-era border security policy. According to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) document obtained by ABC News, the end of Title 42 will result in as many as 18,000 migrants attempting to illegally cross the southern border each day.

“The DHS Office of Immigration Statistics (OIS) produced projections for post-Title 42 Southwest Border encounters describing low, medium, high, or very high encounter scenarios,” the document says. “These scenarios underpin planning assumptions that generate requirements which in turn drive operational execution. Based on these projections the SBCC is currently planning for 6,000, 12,000 (high) and 18,000 (very high) encounters per day.”

The border is already undergoing the highest levels of illegal immigration on record. Last month, “234,088 migrants encountered at the Southern border in April, per a DHS court filing today. That’s the highest number in DHS history. 117,989 migrants were released into the U.S. in April. 113,248 were removed, including 96,908 expelled via Title 42,” Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin announced on Twitter.

    Old Beto wants this. Pelosi, Biden, and Schumer want this. Your El Paso city mayor and council wants this….WHY IN THE WORLD ARE YOU COMPLAINING? It’s what you have been advocating for forever! Enjoy!

    I’m against illegal aliens. They should be deported immediately. Notice I said ILLEGAL ALIENS! Legal, vetted, and approved immigrants who want to become Americans are welcome. Criminals are not. It’s a FEDERAL CRIME TO ILLEGALLY ENTER AMERICA.

    So, liberals, I ignore your whining crocodile tears. Deal with the issues you wanted without whining.

    Biden keeps letting them in. He needs to be impeached and tried for treason.

    There were thousands of what was refered to as “seperetest” in Ukraine that invited Russia in to “change” Ukraine.

    El Paso schools are 80% Hespanic and our government agents are suggesting we not intimidating others waiting to come in.

    We voted for Representatives to represent real Americans, but they are representing those other than Americans more, to an extent that those “other” will create a great reset.

    If they were freeing oppression, they could have stopped in Mexico.

Texas Gov Greg Abbott Responds To SCOTUS Ruling On Remain In Mexico Policy

Published

Texas Governor Greg Abbott

On Thursday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott responded to the Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling in Biden v. Texas that the Biden administration could end the former Trump administration’s Migrant Protection Protocol (MPP), also known as the “remain in Mexico” policy, which requires asylum seekers to stay in Mexico while they wait for a court hearing.

“The ruling in Biden v. Texas was the latest chapter in the tug-of-war over the policy, formally known as the Migrant Protection Protocol, since the Trump administration announced it in 2018,” SCOTUSblog explained. “The justices allowed the Trump administration to begin enforcing the policy after a federal district judge blocked it, and a few months later the justices agreed to review a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit holding that the policy likely violated both federal immigration and international law. The justices dismissed that case last year, however, after the Biden administration attempted to end the policy.”

“Texas and Missouri challenged the Biden administration’s efforts to terminate the policy. After a federal district judge in Texas ordered the federal government to reinstate the policy, both the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit and the Supreme Court rejected requests from the Biden administration to temporarily put the district judge’s ruling on hold, prompting the government to revive the policy while litigation continued,” SCOTUSblog added. “The court on Thursday agreed with the Biden administration that ending MPP would not violate federal law.”

In response to the ruling, Governor Abbott warned that ending the policy would only encourage further illegal immigration amid the record-breaking border crisis, and pointed to the recent tragedy in which dozens of migrants were found dead in a semitruck abandoned near San Antonio as evidence of the dangers of illegal immigration.

“The Supreme Court’s decision upholding DHS’s termination of the Remain-in-Mexico policy will only embolden the Biden Administration’s open border policies,” Abbott said. “More than fifty people recently died in a trailer—people who were allowed to cross our border illegally because of President Biden’s policies. Reinstating and fully enforcing Remain-in-Mexico would deter thousands more migrants from making that deadly trek, and President Biden should take that simple step to secure the border because it is the only humane thing to do.”

Arizona Governor Signs Massive Border Security Bill

Published

Border crisis

On Thursday, Republican Arizona Governor Doug Ducey signed a bill that will send hundreds of millions of dollars to strengthen security on his state’s border with Mexico, which comes as the illegal immigration crisis that originated under President Biden continues to worsen.

According to a press release from the governor’s office, the legislation, coupled with “targeted investments from the fiscal year 2023 budget, dedicates a record $564 million to help to secure our border with a physical barrier, address critical public safety staffing shortages, and modernize the technology and public safety equipment to target criminal activity and keep our citizens safe.”

The legislation will direct $335 million specifically to “construct and maintain a border fence, purchase or install border security technologies, and to pay associated administrative costs.”

“Inaction by President Joe Biden has led to the worst border crisis in over 20 years,” Governor Ducey said. “I’ve been outspoken about the impact this crisis has on Arizonans, our communities and migrants. We’ve taken numerous steps to help resolve the chaos, including deploying the Arizona National Guard, signing legislation to address human smuggling and transporting migrants on a voluntary basis to Washington, D.C. Ultimately, however, securing our border is the responsibility of the federal government… With this investment, we are giving our law enforcement professionals another critical resource they need to successfully do their jobs. We are standing up for the rule of law, and we are cementing Arizona’s commitment to securing our state and our entire nation.”

State Rep. John Kavanagh, who sponsored the legislation, said, “The number of migrant encounters has skyrocketed at our border, overwhelming law enforcement and the Border Patrol. Thanks to the absent federal government, our border is in chaos and out of control. We need more support and physical barriers. This is a reasonable investment in Arizona’s safety and security. I’m grateful for Governor Ducey’s leadership to take action and secure the border.”

The legislation comes as illegal immigration has reached the highest level ever recorded with nearly 240,000 migrants being encountered by border officials in May.

“There were an unprecedented 239,416 migrant encounters at the Southern border in May, CBP reports. This is the highest monthly total in DHS history, beating the record that was set the month before in April w/ 234,088,” Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin wrote on Twitter.
