US Border Patrol has begun to release illegal aliens at bus stations as detention facilities are filled to capacity following a surge in migrants at the US-Mexico border. Apprehensions of migrant families in California’s El Centro sector rose 383%, which includes 293,000 unaccompanied children and people traveling in families over the past seven months. Migrants are now being bused into San Bernardino. El Centro is one of nine sectors on the US-Mexico border and all of them have been flooded beyond the maximum holding level.

A surge in migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border has pushed immigration detention facilities in California to capacity, forcing U.S. Border Patrol to release many at bus stations in the state for the first time, the agency said on Monday.

.S. Border Patrol in the El Centro area of southern California said it began to drop migrants off at San Bernardino’s Greyhound Station on Wednesday after it ran out of room to hold them.

“It was a decision that was made because they couldn’t take any more families and obviously we cannot keep them in custody for much longer because we are at capacity,” said Miguel Garcia, acting assistant chief patrol agent.

Apprehensions of migrant families in California’s El Centro sector rose 383 percent in the seven months through April from a year earlier as record numbers of mainly Central Americans crossed the border, Border Patrol data shows.

In San Bernardino, long a transit hub for east-west travel and freight, immigrants were dropped off at the bus terminal by Customs and Border Patrol Agents to wait for family, friends or volunteers to pick them up.

“We asked them where they were going to drop us off and they said at a bus station and there you might find some people who can help you, and that’s it,” said Angel Gonzalez, 34, who left Guatemala on April 25 with his 11-year-old son and traveled through Mexico before crossing the U.S. border.

Gonzalez and his son were held by Customs and Border Patrol for six nights before they were released at the bus station on Sunday, seeking a ride to join relatives in Arkansas.

Immigration authorities for years have dropped off migrants at bus stations in the Southwest, after releasing them pending court hearings to decide whether they can stay in the country. From there, they travel to their intended destination in the United States.

Record numbers of families from Central America are traveling to the U.S.-Mexico border and asking for asylum in the United States, fleeing poverty and violence in their home countries. From October 2018 through this April, nearly 293,000 unaccompanied children or people traveling in families were apprehended at the southern U.S. border – nearly four times the number during the same period the prior year.

Biden’s ‘Kids in Cages’ Prove Hypocrisy on Immigration

March 1, 2021 NY Post and Breitbart 2

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris savaged President Trump for keeping “kids in cages.” But now they’re doing the same thing by housing 700 migrant teens in some of the very same facilities they decried. Biden is ending Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” program for Central American asylum seekers, which took pressure off the border.

Put them on buses and send them back over the fraking border! I love dumping them to CA, but no guarantee they will stay there and taxpayers are still paying for it. We are so stupid.
