Border Patrol Officials Recount Onslaught of Illegal Migrants as Biden Implements Open Borders, ‘Catch and Release’
Border Patrol agents stationed in the Rio Grande Valley in south Texas are describing an avalanche of illegal immigration spurred directly by President Joe Biden’s open borders and enforcement-gutting policies. The arrivals of illegal migrants have considerably increased in numbers in recent weeks, with migrants mostly processed and set free into the country under the Biden administration’s “catch and release” policies.
Even NGO’s that provide assistance to illegal immigrants are openly admitting that the new arrivals exploded after Joe Biden’s inauguration. “For some reason, the day after the inauguration, we had a big influx of people coming,” said Shon Young, the director of the Val Verde Border Humanitarian Coalition, in remarks provided to the Center for Immigration Studies.
The onslaught of illegal immigration had overwhelmed the capabilities of detention facilities, with CBP left with no choice but to release the migrants.
“We are releasing hundreds from many different countries of origin because we simply don’t have enough room to hold them all,” an agent told CIS. “They are being released under what is called an O.R. which means ‘Own Recognizance’ – basically, a promise to arrive for their immigration hearing at some future date. We can’t hold them because they are crossing all day long in groups of 20 to 40, men, women, children.”
Many groups of migrants are arriving from uncommon countries of origin such as Haiti. Biden had even gone so far as to order ICE to release all migrants detained in immigration detention facilities, and the overflow of migrants into the country after the jailbreak establishes a state of open borders in the United States.
Biden’s gutting of immigration enforcement has defined the first several weeks of his presidency, the combination of such with termination of wall construction and a promise of citizenship and welfare to tens of millions of illegal immigrants serving as a de facto ‘perfect storm’ of illegal immigration at the southern border.
