U.S. military bases are now being used for illegal immigrants’ housing in addition to the Donna, Texas border detention facility, the convention center in Dallas, and San Diego Convention Center.
Migrants are currently being held at Fort Bliss and Joint Base San Antonio in Texas after crossing into the United States, Gateway Pundit reported.
Adding to military base accommodations, the Pentagon approved a third military base, California National Guard post Camp Roberts in Central California, to house unaccompanied migrant minors amid the border surge invited by the Biden Administration.
Based on totals released last week, there are approximately 18,000 unaccompanied minor migrants in US custody. The Biden Admin continues to refuse to call the border surge a crisis despite requests from Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra’s calls for border cities to assist.
Preliminary numbers show that Customs and Border Protection is on track to have encountered more than 171,000 migrants in March — a significant increase from last year, and also from February, when the number was just over 100,000, Fox News reported.
Friday, Fox confirmed that Customs and Border Protection is projecting that as many as 184,000 unaccompanied children could reach the border this fiscal year.
“We have a crisis on the border, even though the Biden administration still refuses to acknowledge it,” former CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan and Heritage senior research fellow Lora Ries said in a statement. “Today’s numbers are just more evidence of this undeniable reality – and proof that President Biden’s policies are driving this crisis.”
What is the plan for the projected 200,000 kids that will be here by year end? The government isn’t talking, but there are additional plans for opening large-scale housing sites in San Antonio and El Paso, Texas.
