Reinforcements Deployed to Southern Border as Border Patrol Becomes ‘Overwhelmed by Migrants’

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has been forced to deploy reinforcements to help address the Southern Border crisis.

According to a new report from the Daily Caller, border agents have now become “overwhelmed by migrants.”

Per the outlet:

Border Patrol called in reinforcements to help as agents grow increasingly overwhelmed by migrants in an area of southern Arizona, according to an internal Sunday message to agency officials obtained exclusively by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

The outlet then revealed the contents of the memo.

It refers to the migrant processing center that is located in Tucson, Arizona.

This is one of the facilities where illegal immigrants who illegally cross the U.S.-Mexico border are held.

The Daily Caller, citing two anonymous Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials, reports that the Tucson migrant processing center, as of Sunday, has about 4,600 illegal immigrants in custody.

To help put things into perspective, the Daily Caller reports that CBP currently has about 20,000 illegal immigrants in processing centers nationwide.

This is why reinforcements had to be called to the Tucson processing center.

The memo directs CBP officers from Douglas, Arizona, to report to the Tucson facility for “processing and transportation support.”

According to Daily Caller, the memo also calls for “specialized units, such as horse patrols, and manning sensors for illegal aliens running from law enforcement.”

The situation, apparently, is so out of control, that the Tucson Border Patrol, on Sunday, decided to shut down its social media accounts.

In a post on Twitter/X, John Modlin, the Chief Patrol Agent of the Tucson Sector, explained:

In light of the ongoing migration surge, all Tucson Sector Border Patrol social media accounts will be temporarily reduced to maximize our available staffing in support of our current operational challenges.

In a subsequent X message, Modlin wrote:

At this time, all available personnel are needed to address the unprecedented flow.

The social media team will return once the situation permits.

We will continue to post our Week in Review statistics, demonstrating the continued efforts of our agents and staff.

This is all the result of the Biden administration’s open border policies.

America has seen record levels of illegal immigration since Biden took over.

Yet, despite measures that Biden supposedly took earlier this year to address the problem, the crisis has continued.

CBP witnessed 2.2 million illegal immigrant encounters during the 2022 fiscal year.

The agency also recorded another 2 million during the 2023 fiscal year.
