"This is after releases have been taking place in Arizona in the Tucson Sector for days as agents have been facing 2,000 encounters a day and images have emerged of packed shelters in places like Ajo," Fox News reported.
"Meanwhile, Texas is continuing to use razor wire to block migrants trying to enter illegally, as it fends off a challenge from the Biden administration seeking to stop it from building a buoy barrier in the Rio Grande," it added.

"For the 5th straight day migrants were street released in San Diego bringing the total to over 2,300 migrants released into the community in the last few days," News Nation reported.
"Local officials say they are frustrated with the federal government only getting an hour or two heads up before the drop-offs and say resources are already strained due to the homeless problem," it added.
The border communities are facing the strongest issues with massive numbers of migrants entering their communities, with record border crossings since President Joe Biden entered office.
Faraway cities like New York and Chicago have also been impacted, with New York City claiming over 110,000 migrants have recently sought asylum.
Even many Democrats are now pushing the Biden administration to provide more help with the border and migration, with cities overwhelmed by the growing number of people.
San Diego's experience may become even worse in the days ahead as more people are released into the city without adequate structure to handle the new individuals.
