According to a new forecast, more than 1.8 million illegal immigrants are expected to cross the U.S.-Mexico border this year, making it the “worst ever” on record for illegal immigration.
Only around 1 million legal immigrants are processed in an average year, which would mean total immigration for 2021 would be nearly over 3 million people.
The projection from Princeton Policy Advisors showed that a high of 1,864,000 illegal immigrants could cross the southwest border based on current trends and past averages.
Journalist Bill Melugin has been documenting the crisis:
It was recently reported that about 50,000 migrants who crossed the southern border illegally in just the past few months have now been released in the United States without a court date according to a recent Axios report.
According to another recent report, border officials are reportedly being warned by the Biden administration to prepare for the processing of more than 1,000 migrant families each day ahead of President Joe Biden’s expected plans to terminate Title 42 by the end of July.
According to Axios, illegal migration is at record highs and more migrants are coming from further away, including Haiti.
One video shows Haitians being dropped off at random gas stations by officials and told to reach their final destination within 60 days and within the interior of the country or face removal.
According to another Axios report, the Biden administration is only deporting around 13% of migrants that illegally cross. This report aligns with statements from border patrol officials which say the Biden administration is only deporting certain single male migrants, while everyone else is processed and gets to stay.
A picture obtained by VDare shows a group of thousands of migrants waiting for processing under the Anzalduas Port of Entry. The line of people reportedly goes all the way down to the riverbank, about a quarter of a mile. The photographer said the weather was around 100 to 105 degrees.
During a meeting about one Texas facility, a doctor for the U.S. Public Health Service refused to give out information on Covid rates.
“I can’t give you daily numbers and breakouts and graphs and things like that,” he said. “Assume everyone has Covid, act appropriately. … Sorry, it’s not a great answer.”
Earlier this week, La Joya officials confirmed that thousands of COVID-positive migrants have crossed, and many of them are staying at local hotels to quarantine.
According to reports, the Biden administration has spent around $86 million on hotel rooms for migrants as his administration struggles to handle the surge of families and kids trying to come to the US.
The contract is with hotels near the border in Arizona and Texas to hold thousands of migrants, and will allegedly last six months. The deal was made through Endeavors, a non-profit with programs that include housing services and disaster relief.
City officials urged nonprofits to inform local governments when and where COVID-19 “hot spots are created in our communities.”
