Biden’s Halt of Border Wall Construction Sends Migrants Flooding Into US; 'Domino impact': Border Agents Pulled Off Patrol Sparks Spike in 'gotaways', and related stories

Biden’s halt of border wall construction sends migrants flooding into US: official:
Hordes of illegal immigrants are taking advantage of gaps in the border wall amid halted construction under President Biden, a border agent has revealed.
“It’s insane,” a border official speaking to Fox News said while attending to a group of 13 Brazilian migrants near a 100-foot gap in the fence in Otay Mesa, Calif.
“The project is three-quarters done. At least, they should be allowed to tie together the primary fence. Otherwise, we’re trying to catch these people in the worst possible place. It’s just sucking our manpower,” the agent continued.
Smugglers send groups of asylum seekers through the gaps to overwhelm the agents, the agent told the network. When agents leave to intercept or apprehend one group, another one dashes across.
More than 11 days have passed since Biden’s 60-day order halting border wall construction expired, as hordes of migrants take advantage of gaps in fencing to reach the US. --->READ MORE HERE

'Domino impact': Border agents pulled off patrol sparks spike in 'gotaways':
As many as 1,000 people a day likely sneaking by as agents are transitioned to care of children and families
Most of the attention at the border is on the capture of children and families, but an even bigger problem could be the people who are getting away right now.
As agents are pulled off their regular patrol duties to take care of children and families, as many as 800 to 1,000 people a day are likely sneaking by the Border Patrol and winding their way deeper into the U.S., according to one former official.
They are not getting COVID-19 testing, and they often have troubling criminal cases.
Drugs are also coming through the same holes in the border’s defenses, said Mark Morgan, who was acting commissioner at Customs and Border Protection during the Trump administration and served as chief of the Border Patrol in the Obama years.
“The smugglers are using the families and UACs as a diversionary tactic,” said Mr. Morgan, referring to the migrant families and unaccompanied alien children whose care is absorbing agents’ time. “Who do you think are the ones getting away? It’s not your upstanding citizens. That’s where the criminal element is coming in. That’s where the gang members are getting through.” --->READ MORE HERE
