15,000 Haitians waited at an encampment as they tried to migrate to the US at Del Rio, Texas last week. The state of Texas deployed state troopers and National Guardsmen to the area. Border officials have apprehended over 1.5 million migrants in 2021 fiscal year, compared to 500,000 last year when Trump was in office.
The federal government has lost contact with around 5,000 out of almost 15,000 children who were released into the interior of the US between January and May. Sponsors no longer have to get fingerprinted to claim a child. Almost anyone who doesn’t flag as a violent felon and claims to be a relative can claim a child.
There has been a surge of illegal border crossings since Joe Biden took office after he publicly relaxed border controls and reversed border protection. An SUV crammed with suspected migrants passed directly in the path of a big rig in the early morning, and 14 people were killed in the crash, including the driver.
