With the Title 42 program ending and all sorts of misinformation coming out and an overworked Immigration app ?
Things have gotten a bit crazy….
Migrants rushing across the border to surrender to Border cops to get themselves put into the system so they can get appearance dates before a judge so they they do NOT get sent back across the border….
Temporary tent cities springing up….
And nobody knowing how long this will go on….

It was not clear how many migrants were on the move or how long the surge might last. By Thursday evening, the flow seemed to be slowing in some locations, but it was not clear why, or whether crossings would increase again after the coronavirus-related restrictions expire.
A U.S. official reported the Border Patrol stopped some 10,000 migrants on Tuesday — nearly twice the level from March and only slightly below the 11,000 figure that authorities have said is the upper limit of what they expect after Title 42 ends.
More than 27,000 people were in U.S. Customs and Border Protection custody, the official said.
“Our buses are full. Our planes are full,” said Pedro Cardenas, a city commissioner in Brownsville, Texas, just north of Matamoros, as recent arrivals headed to locations across the U.S….
