U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement sent an urgent email to senior staff Thursday night asking for volunteers to quickly deploy to the border to help cope with the soaring numbers of migrant families, teens and children filling U.S. border stations and cramming into holding cells beyond capacity.

“This situation mandates immediate action to protect the life and safety of federal personnel and the aliens in custody,” wrote Michael W. Meade, ICE’s acting assistant director for Field Operations, in an email obtained by The Washington Post.

“Start and end dates are TBD, but could begin as soon as this weekend at locations along the SWB, most likely Texas,” Meade wrote, referring to the southwest border. He also told staff the emergency conditions could persist, adding, “it is anticipated that the enforcement actions will continue to grow over the coming months.”

The number of migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border shot up to more than 4,200 per day this week, nearly double the volume in January, the most recent statistics show. U.S. Customs and Border Protection is on pace to make more than 120,000 arrests and detentions in March, which would make it one of the busiest months in recent decades.

Meade told senior ICE officials that CBP needs immediate help guarding families and minors who crossed the border without their parents.

ICE officials have converted two detention centers in South Texas into rapid-processing hubs for parents arriving with children, with the goal of releasing them into the U.S. interior within 72 hours. That is the legal limit established for the amount of time that underage migrants are supposed to stay in immigration custody.

The number of these teens and children held in detention cells along the border surpassed 3,500 this week, a record, and the minors have been arriving at a rate that far exceeds the government’s ability to place them in shelters run by the Department of Health and Human Services or release them to vetted sponsors, often relatives living in the United States….
