College football players in El Paso, Texas for the Sun Bowl are taking up the city’s hotel rooms, which spells “crisis” for the hundreds of illegal immigrant migrants that ICE dropped off at an El Paso bus station this week.
“We have these teams coming in to play in our Sun Bowl this weekend and the hotels are booked. We’re facing a real crisis coming up … to find places for all of these (migrant) families,” said Veronica Escobar, the district’s soon-to-be-sworn in Democratic representative.
The migrants have been reportedly enjoying hotel stays in the city courtesy of the nonprofit organization Annunciation House.
What will happen to the migrants who get bounced or blocked from hotels for a few days on account of the college football players? ICE does not seem to have any plans to deport them, due to a court order, and the number of migrants hanging around El Paso actually grew this week.
Almost 600 illegal immigrants and asylum seekers were dropped off at an El Paso bus station by Immigration and Customs Enforcement without any plans to detain or house them, according to a spokesman with the El Paso Police Department.
ICE justified the questionable move to release hundreds of previously detained illegal immigrants onto the streets by releasing a statement explaining that the agency was complying with a court order to release the migrants from custody within 20 days. Approximately 400 of the migrants had been released the day before Christmas Eve, with a further 186 being dropped off at a bus station on Christmas Day.
Democratic Congressman Robert ‘Beto’ O’Rourke of El Paso said that he had been told a further 500+ migrants were set to be released in the community on Wednesday.
Local law enforcement and municipal officials appear to have been given little to no advance notice about a sizable population of foreign nationals being released in the City of El Paso, some of whom may represent a criminal threat. Individuals linked to street gangs such as the MS13 gang and serious hardened criminal organizations such as the Sinaloas and Los Zetas drug cartels have been detected embedded with populations of illegal migrants arriving in the United States from Mexico and Central America.
Now that the illegal migrants have been released, it is likely that a significant percentage of the group will refuse to appear in court for immigration proceedings. They’ll likely either fade out of sight into the 12-million strong and growing population of illegals residing in the United States, or become subject to complicated and at times dangerous attempts to apprehend and deport them.
Border Patrol Arrests More Aliens at Border in February Than Any Year Since 2006
Customs and Border Patrol detained more aliens at the southern border in February than any other year since 2006. Nearly 100,000 aliens were arrested last month, according to CBP officials who spoke to Reuters. February isn’t usually a big month for crossings at the southern border, with migrants instead usually preferring to try to enter the United States in the spring and summer months.
The surge in illegal immigration directly follows President Joe Biden’s embrace of “America Last” border and asylum policies. It’s hard to tell if the majority of the aliens remain in detention, have been set free into the country, or have been deported under coronavirus expulsion policies. Biden has all but abolished immigration detention for illegals who have been in the United States for an extended period of time, but the rules surrounding migrants who have been recently caught at the southern border are entirely unclear.
CBP officials are expecting 13,000 unaccompanied minors to arrive at the southern border in the month of May alone, presenting a crisis for an administration that has refused to respond to a surge of illegal migration with anything other than promises of residency, welfare benefits, and taxpayer-funded services.
On Wednesday, CBP apprehended more than 4,500 migrants on a single day, a figure that may very well represent a March record. Less arrests usually mean less aliens are infiltrating the borders, a phenomenon that President Trump’s “America First” immigration policies deterred through a combination of border wall, ‘Remain in Mexico’ asylum policies, and swift deportations of illegals.
The Biden administration has refused to consider any buffed border policies to deter new waves of illegal migrants, with ‘caravan’ style formations of thousands of migrants likely to arrive in the spring and the summer. Asylum seekers have appeared at the southern border wearing Biden campaign shirts, touting the establishment politician’s staunch loyalty to illegal immigrants over working and middle-class American citizens.
