    PLANES BEING USED TO REDUCE OVERCROWDING AS BORDER DETENTIONS SURGE TO HISTORIC

    PLANES BEING USED TO REDUCE OVERCROWDING AS BORDER DETENTIONS SURGE TO HISTORIC LEVELS: REPORT

    BY ASHER STOCKLER ON 5/11/19 AT 12:51 PM EDT



    01:32Border Patrol Releases Video Of Immigration Detention Center In McAllen, Texas



    U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the agency responsible for processing migrants who arrive at or between ports of entry, is now using flights to reduce overcrowding at a processing facility in McAllen, Texas, along the U.S. border with Mexico, according to a new Washington Post report.

    The Post reported Saturday morning that the first such flight left the McAllen facility on Friday and took migrant detainees to nearby facilities in Del Rio. Each flight reportedly costs $16,000 and can transport around 135 migrants.


    Border apprehensions have soared in recent months, with the number of crossings reaching its highest level in more than a decade. Immigration agencies have been flummoxed by the recent surge and report an inability to respond effectively with the resources at their disposal. In April, nearly 100,000 migrants were apprehended crossing the U.S. border with Mexico. That represents a 48 percent increase in apprehensions since February, according to CBP data. The arrival of families is driving the surge in border crossings, with 60 percent of April’s apprehensions consisting of individuals arriving with other family members.


    CBP’s El Paso jurisdiction has seen an 1,800 percent increase year over year in illegal crossings by families, the largest such increase for any CBP jurisdiction in any category of border crossing, which also include apprehensions of unaccompanied minors and single adults. The Rio Grande sector, which includes the McAllen processing facility, has seen its share of migrant family crossings increase 240 percent year over year, according to CBP figures. This jurisdiction is responsible for the largest number of migrants by far, having apprehended over 170,000 individuals since October.


    Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan arrived in McAllen on Saturday along with Kevin McAleenan, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security, which oversees CBP.

    Defense officials told the Post on Saturday that DHS had submitted a request to the Pentagon to help supplement CBP resources at the border. The Pentagon has intermittently been met with requests for additional resources from DHS as border crossings this year grew to historic levels and the agency was not prepared to respond to the surge on its own.

    Detention facilities are overflowing with migrants and beds are at capacity. CBP has had to erect tents in the parking lots of processing facilities to cope with the influx.


    “What we want is for DHS to be effective and stand alone,” Shanahan told reporters in McAllen on Saturday.

    He said that he instructed two-star Army General Ricky Waddell to develop a plan of action to respond to the question: “How do we get more badges back to the border?”

    Shanahan announced on Friday that he was transferring an additional $1.5 billion from various coffers to a drug-fighting initiative that will be used to help finance a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border. The Pentagon already transferred $1 billion to finance wall construction in March. This follows a 35-day partial government shutdown earlier this year that resulted from a dispute over funding for a border wall. Congress ended up appropriating $1.375 billion in money to improve border security — far less than the president was demanding, and specified for "the construction of primary pedestrian fencing, including levee pedestrian fencing, in the Rio Grande Valley Sector."

    The president ultimately opted to forgo seeking funds from Congress and instead declared a national emergency, granting him the authority to reallocate certain already appropriated money to spend on the wall.

    A number of entities sued to block the emergency declaration; those challenges are currently working their way through the courts.

    Border detention cells in Texas are so overcrowded that U.S. is using aircraft to move migrants

    Overcrowding at Border Patrol stations in South Texas has become so acute in recent days that U.S. authorities have taken the rare step of using aircraft to relocate migrants to other areas of the border simply to begin processing them, according to three Homeland Security officials.


    The first flight left McAllen, Tex., on Friday, transferring detainees to Border Patrol facilities in Del Rio, Tex. There are daily flights scheduled for the next several days, with two planned for Tuesday, according to officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe the operations.


    The flights are conducted by U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement, but the detainees remain in the custody of Border Patrol, officials said. Though ICE routinely uses aircraft to move detainees among its detention facilities, it is very unusual for Border Patrol to fly recent arrivals from one part of the border to another to perform routine booking procedures.


    [From the border, more frustrating immigration numbers for President Trump]


    Homeland Security officials requested the aircraft because Border Patrol urgently needs to move single adults out of the lower Rio Grande Valley of South Texas. The agency is scrambling to make room for the large volume of families and children who have come across the border in dramatically higher numbers in the past several days, officials said.

    One official said the U.S. government has resorted to using aircraft because all available buses were already in use and authorities needed every available transportation option.


    “This is the worst I have ever seen it, by far,” said one veteran Border Patrol agent in South Texas who was not authorized to speak to reporters.


    The number of people taken into custody along the Mexico border has exceeded 5,500 each day for several days in a row, and Border Patrol currently has more than 17,500 people in holding cells and tent sites set up in parking lots outside stations, officials said. That is a 30 percent increase from late March, when authorities said border agents and infrastructure had hit the “breaking point.”

    [U.S. has hit “breaking point” amid immigration surge, officials say]

    Tents have been set up in the parking lots outside Border Patrol stations in the lower Rio Grande Valley cities of McAllen, Brownsville and Rio Grande City to ease overcrowding. Emergency tents for families also have been erected in El Paso and at Camp Donna, a military site in the Rio Grande Valley.


    To alleviate overcrowding in holding cells, Border Patrol in recent weeks has begun releasing migrants directly from its custody, instead of waiting for ICE to pick them up and either detain or release them.


    But the sheer volume of people coming across the border in the past several days has swamped the agency’s ability to process families and children, so holding cells are filling with single adults because they are a lesser priority.

    Border Patrol will use the flights to transfer some of those adults to Del Rio, where facilities are less overcrowded, instead of having to conduct releases, officials said. Each flight costs $16,000 and can transport about 135 adults.

    Homeland Security officials view the direct release of single adults as a red line, because they say that demographic group has the most potential to be deterred by enforcement efforts.


    Carla Provost, the chief of Border Patrol, told lawmakers Wednesday that authorities would “lose control” of the border if they had to begin releasing single adults, because that group is the only remaining demographic that can be detained and quickly deported.


    “My greatest concern is that we will no longer be able to deliver consequences and we will lose control of the border,” Provost told members of a Senate Homeland Security panel.


    Adults who arrive with children typically are released from custody after a few days with an appointment to see an immigration judge because U.S. courts have limited the amount of time minors can be held in immigration jails. Department of Homeland Security officials say this model — which President Trump decries as “catch and release” — is to blame for the border surge.

    Authorities detained 109,144 migrants along the Mexico border last month, the highest total since 2007. More than 60 percent of those taken into custody were families or children.

    Acting Homeland Security secretary Kevin McAleenan and acting Defense secretary Patrick Shanahan plan to travel to the Rio Grande Valley on Saturday to visit the McAllen border station to call for a “whole of government” approach to addressing the crisis, according to a DHS statement.

    Whatever it takes, keep them detained until they can be deported. Do not release them into our interior! Catch & release must end now!

    I don't think they are deported from Del Rio.
    They are asylum seekers so they are released from Del Rio.

    They are not sending them to Del Rio to DETAIN them, they are sending them to process them and turn them loose. More DRAMA, more added expense.

    We are not going to Detain millions of people, when that order was given they were not even detaining the million who already had orders of deportation.

    END CATCH and RELEASE is just another fantasy they dreamed up (they had no intention of doing it) to keep some looking the other way, while the country was flooded with a few million more.

    It is crumbs, and sometime even the crumbs are invisible, to keep people from asking for what needs to be done, and that is STOP them from entering this country. This is WAR and it is time we treat it as such.

    All asylum seekers should be detained until their case has been fully adjudicated. I don't care what anyone says, this catch & release crap must end! Releasing those seeking asylum when most of them never show up for their court date is just ridiculous.
