Migrant Crossings Surge As Title 42 Nears End

Illegal migrant crossings at the southern border spiked in March as Title 42 nears its end on May 11.

The Biden administration has sent 1,500 active-duty military personnel to the border to deal with the expected surge.

"Border Patrol agents reported 162,317 migrant encounters in March, an increase of 32,000 migrants from the month before. Eleven of the apprehended migrants had names matching ones on the terror watch list," the Free Beacon reported.

"The surge in migrants comes as the Department of Homeland Security is working to roll out a program that expedites screenings and interviews for those seeking asylum. The program will ensure migrants have access to legal services, according to the agency," it added.

"In the past few weeks, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials have been facilitating these expulsions three times a day as roughly 30,000 migrants, mostly from Venezuela, have entered the U.S. in this region since mid-April. That's compared with 1,700 migrants Border Patrol agents encountered in the first two weeks of April," ABC News reported.

"In the other end of the state, in El Paso, officials are dealing with another surge of migrants and worry that thousands more are waiting to cross," it added.

Record levels of illegal immigrants have flooded the U.S. during the Biden administration. The numbers have also included high levels of drug trafficking that have seen a spike in levels of fentanyl.

The rollback of Title 42 will likely worsen the situation with some experts predicting chaos with tens of thousands of crossings per day.

The problem is one created by the Biden administration's policies but the issue is expected to impact people across the nation.
