Law enforcement sources report that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is busing hundreds of unaccompanied children (UACs) from the Rio Grande Valley to other border communities to alleviate overcrowding.
The UACs are transferring to Laredo, Carrizo Springs, and Eagle Pass, Texas, for processing and temporary detention. The children are stuck in limbo at Border Patrol stations as the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) struggles to place them in suitable shelter facilities before release.
The movement of the UACs should come as no surprise. Apprehensions climbed steadily over the past weeks with nearly 2,000 arrests by Border Patrol on Saturday alone. Nearly 600 of those were unaccompanied children.
MEXICO CITY (Reuters) — Mexico’s government is worried the new U.S. administration’s asylum policies are stoking illegal immigration and creating business for organized crime, according to officials and internal assessments seen by Reuters.
Ever since President Joe Biden won the White House vowing to undo the hardline approach of his predecessor Donald Trump, Mexico has both looked forward to an end to migration burdens imposed by Trump, and braced for a new influx of people.
PSAKI WONT ANSWER QUESTIONS…
