Customs and Border Protection officials have requested to send thousands of unaccompanied migrant minors to holding facilities in northern states even though they are not equipped to handle the influx.
According to the Washington Post, the request was made because the agency and Department of Homeland Security companions can no longer handle the surge of migrants along the southern border Joe Biden and his administration still refuse to call a “crisis.”
The Telegraph adds:
Homeland Security officials told the newspaper that the request was made while border agents were still struggling to process another group of 1,000 people that had arrived on Thursday night.
Under the air transport plan, groups of migrants would be flown to other border states that have the capacity to process them. It is not clear which states they may receive the groups.
The proposal is the latest measure being considered by the Biden administration as it struggles to manage what many have labeled a crisis on America’s southern border.
The US Homeland Security secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas, has stated that the number of illegal crossings is on course to reach the highest number in two decades.
The plan has been widely criticized by Republicans including U.S. Rep. Matt Rosendale, Montana’s only House member.
In a letter to DHS chief Alejandro Mayorkas, Rosendale is demanding details of the plan and is also wondering why Biden administration immigration officials failed to let northern states like his know of their plans.
“DHS, CBP, and the Biden administration have failed to contain this crisis, and it is now greatly affecting states thousands of miles from the southern border,” he wrote. “As Montana’s representative in Congress, I strongly urge DHS and CBP to reconsider proposals to house illegal aliens from the southern border in the state of Montana.”
In a statement posted online, he said the Biden regime’s “immigration policy is now explicitly to make every town in America a border town.”
He added in a statement: “I am outraged to read the Washington Post story that the Biden Administration is in discussions to fly illegal immigrants from the southern border to the Canadian Border and process these individuals in states like Montana. Without a secure border every town becomes a border town, and now the Biden Border Crisis may come to towns like Helena, Missoula, or Billings. My office will be looking into this and work to stop this from happening.”
Fox News had more:
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) requested the plane support from Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Friday after 1,000 migrant families and unaccompanied minors crossed the Rio Grande into South Texas Friday morning, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials told The Washington Post. Border agents still have another 1,000 migrants they were unable to process last night, according to communications reviewed by the Post.
The backups at CBP are exacerbated by the nearly 4,500 unaccompanied children being held in detention centers and tent sites at the border, many beyond the legal three-day limit.
There is little doubt at this point that Biden’s handlers had no idea getting him to reverse Donald Trump’s enforcement actions would lead to the current ‘crisis.’ They knew it would create a massive influx of migrants and they didn’t care because their objective is two-fold — dilute and thus destroy what’s left of traditional American culture; and harvest millions of new, dependent voters.
It’s diabolical, and it’s working.
