90,000 Migrants Cross US Border in 10 Days as Panic Over Title 42 End Sets In; Devastating Scenes Reveal the True Nature of the Migrant Crisis in El Paso

90,000 migrants cross US border in 10 days as panic over Title 42 end sets in:
Over 73,000 migrants crossed the southern border in the last 10 days according to the US Border Patrol — who admitted a further 17,000 illegal “gotaways” avoided detection and entered the country as things reach a fever pitch ahead of the end of Title 42 on May 11.
22,220 people had been apprehended at all US borders in the last 72 hours, tweeted US Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz on Monday.
He also said another 51,560 migrants were caught at the border in the previous week.
Thousands of people are handing themselves in daily to agents at the southern border in attempts to claim asylum and start a new life in the US.
Most are processed and sent back over the border under Title 42, a pandemic-era policy which allows Border Patrol to immediately send citizens of many countries back to Mexico.
However, this takes time and puts a huge strain in resources along the border.
Customs and Border Protection confirmed in the same time frame at least 16,985 people were recorded as gotaways — who were either spotted by agents or caught by motion sensor cameras but unable to be apprehended.
Officials have said this scene provides a preview of what is to come when Title 42 ends.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott said Monday the federal government is expecting up to 13,000 illegal immigrants to cross the US-Mexico border each day after it expires. --->READ MORE HERE
Devastating scenes reveal the true nature of the migrant crisis in El Paso:
Sobering photos show hundreds of migrants camped out in the streets of El Paso overnight Monday, as the Texas city’s emergency order went into effect in anticipation of the end of Title 42.
The asylum seekers are seen in the images on makeshift beds constructed out of cardboard and sheets, holding their belongings close, as border towns brace for an anticipated flood of migrants once Title 42 is lifted on May 11.
Throngs of migrants were packed tightly on El Paso streets and sidewalks into the early hours, with some taking rest while lying across blankets while others sat perched on the curb.
The asylum seekers photographed in the epicenter of the border crisis appeared to mainly be adults.
El Paso declared a state of emergency starting Monday ahead of the expiration of Title 42, the pandemic-era law that allowed the Border Patrol to send migrants from certain countries back to Mexico.
Officials expect to see up to 13,000 people crossing the border each day once the policy is lifted.
Even with a little over a week to spare until the policy ends, more than 73,000 migrants have crossed the southern border illegally in the last 10 days, according to border officials. --->READ MORE WITH LOTS OF PHOTOS HERE
