El Paso Flooded With Immigrants — Asks To Use Military Base

Must Read

El Paso, Texas, experienced such a surge in migrant crossings that the city administration decided to install a Migrant Situational Awareness Dashboard on its website to provide updates on the situation. Recently, El Paso city officials requested aid with finding accommodation for migrants after US Border Patrol (USBP) division chief Peter Jaquez revealed that the number of border encounters increased to a three-day average of 2,460.

El Paso requests the Biden administration to shelter migrants on nearby military bases to relieve the load on municipal resources as officials get ready for the impending cessation of public health expulsions under Title 42 of the US Code, according to a report in the Daily News on December 13.
To “avoid [the] spread of contagious diseases,” Title 42 of the Public Health Service Act of 1944 calls for the rapid deportation of migrants. In reaction to the COVID-19 outbreak, officials with the Trump administration used the tactic in July 2020 to bar numerous migrants from entering the country by land.

Emmet Sullivan, a Clinton nominee to the federal bench, issued a 49-page memorandum ruling in mid-November, prohibiting agents from deporting families under Title 42.

A two-page judgment by Judge Sullivan also ended all “orders and decision memos” preventing people from entering the US following the border policy. The Justice Department successfully requested a postponement of the expulsions’ termination until December 21.

According to D’Agostino, the Biden administration must find a solution to the predicted rise of migrant encounters following the conclusion of Title 42. About the anticipated usage of Fort Bliss for Afghan refugees following the exit of US forces from Afghanistan in August 2021, he advised that the USBP make arrangements to lodge migrants there.
