The migrant crisis is reaching new epic proportions, with thousands of illegals crossing the border every day. Fox News reports:
In South Texas, border agents the last several days apprehended 229 migrants an hour, or 5,500 a day, forcing the agency to set up tents in parking lots and hiring jets at $16,000 a flight to send adults to nearby Del Rio just for processing.
Pictures released by the Rio Grande Valley sector show migrants piling up in makeshift tents in parking lots as agents struggle to handle the surge.
“Resources consumed by the massive influx of illegal aliens and these humanitarian efforts along the South Texas border are beyond a breaking point and has put border security at risk”, said Chief Patrol Agent Rodolfo Karisch
As for the surge itself, few seem pleased. Mexico blamed the U.S. for not processing Central Americans faster, leaving 13,000 asylum seekers stranded and on waiting lists in Mexico.
This is a monumental crisis, requiring more manpower and money than the Democrats are willing to give. Will military action be necessary in the Western hemisphere to stop the torrential flow of migrants?
