A small town in New Mexico where thousands of asylum-seeking “migrants” have been dropped is beginning to question whether it can handle the influx of foreigners.
Deming, New Mexico has taken in 2,600 “migrants” in a period of two weeks, according to Wall Street Journal, and is now operating a shelter for “migrants.” The town has only 14,000 residents. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has been releasing “migrants” into towns across the American southwest when their sectors are filled to capacity.
In Deming, the town has been welcoming. But some are asking questions.
“You have volunteers that are starting to get burned out,” resident Sophia Cruz reportedly said. “There’s no turning them away. So what then?”
Cruz is a former border patrol agent herself.
Border Patrol has attempted to drop “migrants” at shelters and charitable organizations, but in many instances, even those places are overrun.
From Wall Street Journal:
Larger cities, like San Diego, nearby Las Cruces, and McAllen, Texas, have had substantial help from charities and aid groups in their scramble to find temporary housing for migrants dropped off by the Border Patrol. But the impact reverberates deeper [in Deming], where resources are scant. The day after the first wave of migrants was dropped in town, Deming declared a state of emergency—becoming the second community sheltering migrants to do so, after Yuma, Arizona.
Progress on border security in Washington, D.C., has been slow. Big League Politics reported:
President Donald J. Trump has declared a national state of emergency, for which several heavily-blue states immediately sued his administration. Democrats refuse to budge on the issue, unwilling to secure America’s borders. As illegal border crossings surge, they blocked a meaningful amount of wall funding in the 2019 federal budget.
In what many conservatives see as a colossal failure, the Republican Congress, led by former Speaker Paul Ryan, current Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, failed to deliver wall funding to the president’s desk during all of 2017 and 2018, when Republicans held the House, the Senate, and the White House.

Illegal Immigrant Arrested in Fatal Virginia Hit-and-Run
Pichinte Echeverria entered the country illegally.
An illegal immigrant has been arrested for his alleged involvement in a Virginia hit-and-run incident that caused the death of a 62-year old man.
Pichinte Echeverria was arrested at his workplace on Monday, two weeks after the May 6 death of Alberto Anthony Marino. Marino had been struck in a roadway earlier by a vehicle, and was struck again when laying in the roadway by the driver of a Nissan Xterra, fatally. The drivers of both vehicles fled the scene after striking the Virginia man.
Authorities are describing Walner Alberto Pichinte Echeverria, 35, of 6502 Monarch Road in Frederick, Md, as the driver of the Xterra. A source informed Potomac Local News that Echeverria had entered the country illegally at some point on Wednesday.
Law enforcement were able to identify Echeverria as the driver of the Xterra using surveillance footage obtained from a nearby gas station.
Local police are still looking for the driver of the first vehicle to strike Marino, which they say was a Toyota Corolla.
Echeverria is being charged with felony hit and run for his involvement in the incident. In any event, it appears likely that Marino’s death could’ve been avoided if not for Echeverria’s alleged reckless carelessness and illegal presence in the United States. Should he be convicted of the felony hit and run charges, he’ll likely serve a sentence in federal prison before being subject to deportation proceedings.
