Or is this actually ICE sending a signal to their bosses to change up their orders on what to do at the border whose detention facilities ARE overcrowded and not able to handle the health needs fo sick children??
Nobody wants to responsible for having children die on their watch…..
Maybe they’re on to something. ICE has released 1,600 migrants into the El Paso, Texas area and city officials aren’t too happy about it. Not even a little bit. They warn of a looming ‘crisis.’ Officials told CBS News that charities and non-profits are being “strained.” CBS writes:
The incoming congresswoman of the Texas border city of El Paso is warning of an imminent ‘crisis’ as local officials and charities scramble to accommodate at least 1,600 migrants dropped off there by federal authorities in recent days.”
“We have these teams coming in to play in our Sun Bowl this weekend and the hotels are booked,” said incoming Democratic congresswoman Veronica Escobar. “We’re facing a real crisis coming up … to find places for all of these (migrant) families.”
In an official statement, ICE said they were “forced to release the migrants to comply with a federal “timeframe” dictating the duration a family could be detained by federal authorities.”
Department of Homeland Security spokesperson Katie Wald told CBS that this situation is the result of decisions made by activist judges….
The above Red State piece calls for the releases to be more of a ‘screw you’ then a cry out by an agency that is going to go under the meat grinder in Congress…..
