WASHINGTON, DC, Apr 19 — The Washington Examiner reports that the Biden administration will be releasing some 400 undocumented migrant families into the U.S. each and every day starting the middle of June. The reason: because the numbers of illegals crossing the Mexican border has risen to unmanageable levels; we don’t have the capacity to hold them at the border.
This is not speculation; it’s a fact laid out in a document the newspaper obtained from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. It states: “The number of individuals enrolled in the ICE Alternatives to Detention program has increased from 50 per day to 200 per day in March 2021. Within 90 days, the enrollment is projected to double to 400 per day. It is because of this unusual and compelling urgency that the Government requires the [emergency family reception sites] to meet the critical mission requirements of housing, feeding, transporting, and providing medical attention to these thousands of asylum-seeking families along the southwest border.”
The numbers of illegals crossing the southwest border is alarming, to say the least. In the last months of the Trump Administration the numbers of interceptions of illegals at the border were about 75,000 per month. They increased to 100,000 during the first full month after President Biden took office and in March we saw a dramatic surge as some 172,000 were intercepted. It is said to be the highest monthly numbers in 15 years.
Meanwhile, it has been reported that included in the March numbers were some 18,890 unaccompanied children, 100% more than were counted in February.
The question is, where will these families go once they are released, and the answer is that no one seems to know. Most likely, they will find their way to so-called sanctuary cities.
As the Examiner noted in its coverage of this breaking story: “While the Biden administration deflects criticism over the border crisis, Republicans, and even many Democrats, are attributing the growing problems to Biden’s immigration initiatives, which, thus far, have reversed many of former President Donald Trump’s deterrent policies.”
Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador also puts the blame on the Biden administration. As he put it: “Expectations were created that with the government of President Biden, there would be a better treatment of migrants. And this has caused Central American migrants, and also from our country, wanting to cross the border thinking that it is easier to do so.”
