Despite reports of border security, migrants overwhelm El Paso, Texas

By

Like many communities along the southern border, El Paso is overwhelmed with migrants. Vice President Kamala Harris said the U.S.-Mexico border is secure, but new data from the Department of Homeland Security and on-the-ground reports show that statement is false.

The Washington Free Beacon, citing internal communications from DHS, reports there are now 8,000 migrant encounters at the southern border every day. A new record high.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently started transporting migrants by bus or plane to northern, Democratic-controlled cities like New York and Washington D.C. The Democratic-led city of El Paso, Texas quietly started busing migrants to other so-called sanctuary cities as well.

El Paso is getting grant funding from FEMA to cover the costs of the transportation. Critics said the migrants are being used as political pawns, but leaders in border communities said they are running out of options.

In El Paso, there are so many migrants entering the country illegally, the shelters are overwhelmed, and entire families are sleeping in the streets. The space outside El Paso’s Greyhound bus station now serves as a migrant tent-city of sorts.

In September, an average of 1,300 migrants per day crossed into the United States at El Paso. The crisis continues to be top-of-mind for many Americans as midterm elections approach.

An August NPR survey found a majority of Americans believe we’re facing an invasion at the southern border.

EARLIER THIS MONTH, VICE PRESIDENT KAMALA HARRIS SAID THE US-MEXICO BORDER IS SECURE.

NEW DATA FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY AND ON-THE-GROUND REPORTS FROM BORDER CITIES, HOWEVER, SHOW THAT STATEMENT IS FALSE.

THE WASHINGTON FREE BEACON, CITING INTERNAL COMMUNICATIONS FROM DHS, REPORTS THERE ARE NOW 8000 MIGRANT ENCOUNTERS AT THE SOUTHERN BORDER EVERY DAY. A NEW RECORD HIGH.

TEXAS GOVERNOR GREG ABBOTT AND FLORIDA GOVERNOR RON DESANTIS RECENTLY STARTED TRANSPORTING MIGRANTS BY BUS OR PLANE TO NORTHERN, DEMOCRATIC-CONTROLLED CITIES LIKE NEW YORK AND D.C.

THE DEMOCRATIC-LED CITY OF EL PASO, TEXAS QUIETLY STARTED BUSING MIGRANTS TO OTHER SO-CALLED SANCTUARY CITIES AS WELL.

EL PASO IS GETTING GRANT FUNDING FROM FEMA TO COVER THE COSTS OF THE TRANSPORTATION.

CRITICS SAY THE MIGRANTS ARE BEING USED AS POLITICAL PAWNS, BUT LEADERS IN BORDER COMMUNITIES SAY THEY’RE RUNNING OUT OF OPTIONS.

IN EL PASO, THERE ARE SO MANY MIGRANTS ENTERING THE COUNTRY ILLEGALLY THE SHELTERS ARE OVERWHELMED, AND ENTIRE FAMILIES ARE SLEEPING IN THE STREETS.

THE SPACE OUTSIDE EL PASO’S GREYHOUND BUS STATION NOW SERVES AS A MIGRANT TENT-CITY OF SORTS.

IN SEPTEMBER, AN AVERAGE OF 1300 MIGRANTS PER DAY CROSSED INTO THE STATES AT EL PASO.

THE CRISIS CONTINUES TO BE TOP-OF-MIND FOR MANY AMERICANS AS MIDTERM ELECTIONS APPROACH.
