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.
