Several Customs and Border Protect (CBP) officials have warned the American people that the end of President Donald Trump’s successful Title 42 policy will trigger a huge flood of illegal migrants into the United States.
Democrat President Joe Biden’s top border officials in Washington, D.C., have decided to authorize all Border Patrol sectors to begin “safe” mass releases of migrants to city streets if non-governmental organizations (NGOs) don’t have the capacity to hold them, multiple sources reportedly told Fox News.
The consequence of this decision is that migrants will be mass released at bus stops, gas stations, supermarkets, and in towns and cities across the border, according to CBP sources who were not authorized to speak publicly.
CBP facilities are already over capacity in multiple sectors.
NGOs are also quickly approaching their limits to house migrants.
The lack of facilities to house migrants comes tens of thousands more illegal immigrants are expected to surge into the United States once the Title 42 public health order is lifted on May 11.
The mass releases will only happen if NGOs run out of space.
However, officials warn that is likely as NGOs are already at bursting point.
“The dam is about to break,” one Border Patrol source reportedly warned.
Title 42 has been used since 2020 to expel hundreds of thousands of migrants quickly due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In March, nearly half of all migrant encounters ended in a Title 42 expulsion.
However, without providing any logical rationale, the Biden admin is ending the policy this week.
The order’s end is expected to bring an enormous number of migrants to the border.
Migrants believe they have a greater chance of being admitted into the U.S. once the order ends and while Biden is in office.
The Biden admin has claimed that is not true and has warned that it is stiffening penalties for illegal entry while urging migrants to use expanded legal pathways instead.
Footage captured by Fox News’s Flight Team showed hundreds of migrants streaming across the border into Brownsville, Texas from Matamoros, Mexico last week.
Agents are encountering migrants at a rate of 2,000 a day in Brownsville.
CBP sources have said in the first four days of May they have been encountering more than 8,000 migrants a day border-wide.
The Biden administration has been scrambling to implement measures to reduce the number of illegal crossings and establish a more orderly process.
The administration also announced this week that it is sending 1,500 troops to the border, although officials have said they won’t be engaging with migrants but acting in a supporting role to Customs and Border Protection.
It has also proposed a new asylum rule intended to bar migrants from claiming asylum if they cross the border illegally and have also failed to claim asylum in a country through which they have already passed.
Additionally, the U.S. is partnering with Latin American governments to expand legal pathways with migrant processing centers being established throughout South and Central America.
