Hundreds of migrants were released from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) custody into the U.S. on Monday – the same day Title 42 was supposed to expire before a federal judge blocked the move by the Biden administration.
Busloads of single male migrants arrived at the Mission: Border Hope nonprofit in Eagle Pass, Texas on Monday, where they will receive shelter and food before they travel to their final destination within the U.S.
Executive Director of the non-profit Valeria Wheeler, 35, told DailyMail.com that they house migrants released from Border Patrol until they can transport them to the bus station or airport in San Antonio, Texas, which is about 2.5 hours away.
When asked how many migrants they see each day, Wheeler said: ‘500 – sometimes a little bit less. Yesterday we had 1,000, but it was a mistake. They left. We’ve helped the ones that really needed to stay, but it was so hot that they just left.’
The move to release hundreds of migrants from custody into the U.S. comes the same day that Title 42 was previously supposed to end, which would have given migrants an easier clear path to claim asylum.
Meanwhile, Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott is sending a message to migrants trying to cross into the U.S. from Mexico that they will be met with force – making clear with a fleet of Humvees and armed National Guard soldiers that the state is still enforcing Title 42.
Authorities expected to see a massive influx of migration Monday, but so far the crossing pints in Eagle Pass, Texas are relatively quiet except for patrolling helicopters and fan boats on the Rio Grande River, as well as dozens of Border Patrol trucks and camouflage and camel-colored Army Humvees caravanning through the town and along the border.
Just five miles down the road from the river where hundreds of migrants cross each day, the non-profit Mission: Border Hope, which houses released migrants, received bus loads of single male migrants that were released by Border Patrol into the U.S. the same day Title 42 was meant to expire.
Abbott met with members of the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) and U.S. National Guard under the Camino Real International Bridge II in Eagle Pass, Texas on Monday afternoon.
Following is a border security briefing and a press conference at City Hall.
The governor of Texas shook hands with members of the National Guard in his state – some who have been stationed at the border for months – who are tasked with patrolling popular crossing points along the southern border and intaking migrants for them to be transported to Border Patrol processing facilities.
After processing, hundreds every day are still released from CBP custody despite Title 42 allowing for deportation of asylum-seekers without hearing their claims. Many released turn to NGOs and charities before traveling elsewhere in the U.S.
Wheeler said that migrants and their families need to arrange and pay for travel to their final destination within the U.S. ‘All of them already have tickets, flight tickets or bus tickets, to go out from San Antonio,’ she said of the people who are released from the non-profit facility.
‘We are not willing to create an issue in San Antonio,’ Wheeler added. ‘So we don’t send them if they don’t have travel arrangements done to go to their final destination.’
A gloomy, overcast and chilly winded mid-70s day may have deterred migrants from making the trek across the Rio Grande River with a stronger-than-usual current. But across the border, news is coming that migrants are being prevented from accessing the river.
Despite this, several National Guard soldiers in Eagle Pass told DailyMail.com that they are still expecting the surge previously predicted with the end of Title 42.
Conditions in the Rio Grande River on Monday are extremely dangerous with strong currents in the water, gusting winds and weather warnings of thunderstorms. Sources told a Daily Caller reporter at the border that three migrants drowned Monday morning around 7:00 a.m.
