According to a border town mayor, a border town mayor, hundreds of illegal immigrants were released in a border city in Arizona before they were fully processed and accounted for.
Yuma, Arizona, mayor Douglas Nicholls indicated on Friday that migrants who had been “vetted” but not fully processed would be let out of detention, and as a result, hundreds of migrants were released into the city.
Two hundred eighty detainees were released from three locations in San Luis and the Yuma Public Safety Training Facility before being transported to Phoenix.
As one expert put it, it’s another Biden failure. They’ve managed a problem they created by simply opening the border.
A record number of migrants have crossed into the United States from Mexico, and the mass releases coincide with this influx, as reported by Border Patrol.
The Border Patrol said an unprecedented number of illegal immigrants (83,000) entered the country this week. That is the same amount of people in 2 full-capacity baseball stadiums.
The unprecedented increase in border crossings has occurred in the wake of the Biden administration’s decision to eliminate Title 42, an immigration guideline that permitted individuals to be sent back due to COVID concerns. Up to 700,000 individuals, mainly from Central America, were waiting at the border, expecting its expiration.
Nicholls stated on Thursday that those who were released had been processed and that no criminals were among them, an optimistic claim that has to be trusted without verification.
Before Title 42 was set to expire, the mayor, a Republican, urged President Joe Biden to declare a national emergency along the border. More than 114,000 individuals, including many unaccompanied adults, have entered the Yuma sector this year.
While immigration officials strive to address the illegal immigration situation, President Biden, widely criticized for managing the border, is expected to spend the weekend at his beach property in Delaware, protected by a wall paid for by taxpayers.
