This administration is evil.
Top immigration authorities authorized the “safe” mass release of migrants to U.S. cities if non-governmental organizations lack the capacity to hold them.
Title 42 ends in about a week.

Biden’s 1,500 Troops Sent to Southern Border Are a ‘Welcome Wagon,’ Retired Border Patrol Agent Says
By: Jewish Voice, may 9, 2023:
“It’s a welcome wagon,” a retired Border Patrol agent says of the 1,500 active-duty troops the Biden administration is sending to the southern border ahead of the expiration of Title 42 on May 11.
The troops will be helping with “non-law enforcement duties,” according to the Homeland Security Department, but Frank Lopez says that likely means they will be assigned tasks like “feeding [illegal aliens], to providing water, [and] blankets for little kids.”
Lopez served in the Border Patrol for 30 years before retiring at the end of 2018. While the situation at the border changes to some degree with each administration, Lopez says “the change under Biden was so drastic, so detrimental, and so anti-enforcement.”
Border Patrol, Customs and Border Protection, and CBP’s Office of Field Operations are running drills and stockpiling goods like food and diapers at the ports of entry in preparation for the end of Title 42, said Lopez, who ran for U.S. Congress as a Texas independent in 2022.
In the Del Rio Sector of the southern border, where Lopez lives, Ali Bradley, News Nation’s border correspondent, reports pallets of thin foil blankets are sitting ready to be handed out to migrants at the processing facilities.

Title 42 is a public health measure set in place by the Trump administration during the COVID-19 pandemic and has allowed the Border Patrol to quickly expel some illegal aliens from the country. It’s been estimated Border Patrol will encounter about 13,000 illegal aliens at the border every day when Title 42 ends, according to Andrew R. Arthur, a resident fellow in law and policy at the Center for Immigration Studies. In March, Border Patrol apprehended about 5,200 illegal aliens a day, Arthur said.
Since President Joe Biden took office, there has been “nothing short of a stampede” at America’s southern border, former Vice President Mike Pence said during an interview with Fox News on Thursday.
“A storm is coming,” Pence said of the expiration of Title 42, “and 1,500 troops going to the southern border to do paperwork isn’t going to make a difference.”
DHS says the troops will be conducting and providing “ground-based detection and monitoring, data entry, and warehouse support.”
“This administration has got to stop, plant its feet, reverse course, and put back into place the policies that our administration used to reduce illegal immigration and asylum abuse by 90%,” Pence said.
In the final year of the Trump administration, CBP reports encountering fewer than 560,000 illegal aliens at the southern border. Under the Biden administration in fiscal year 2021, encounters rose to more than 1.7 million, and 2.3 million in fiscal 2022. Since the start of this fiscal year on Oct. 1, CBP reports encounters of more than 1.2 million illegal aliens.
With the end of Title 42 less than a week away, Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., is calling for the impeachment of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
