Reports indicate that the Biden administration has had to shut down key points along the U.S.-Mexico border in order to deal with the ongoing surge of Haitian migrant crossings in Del Rio, Texas.
In case you missed it, this surge started earlier this week with thousands of migrants crossing over into the United States. They have been accumulating under the Del Rio International Bridge where they wait to be detained, processed, and often released into America by the Biden administration.
As of Friday, it was reported that some 12,000 migrants had accumulated under the Del Rio International Bridge.
The situation appears to be out of control, which has forced the Biden administration to shut down several points along the U.S.-Mexico border in order to divert resources to deal with the ongoing situation.
Breitbart reports that U.S. Border Patrol has now closed all highway immigration checkpoints operating in the Loredo Sector.
In total, there are six permanent checkpoints in the Laredo Sector. And, one of these checkpoints, located on the I-35 Interstate, between Laredo and San Antonio, is the busiest one of its kind in the country.
The closings began late in the afternoon on Friday.
Breitbart reports that the resources that normally go to operate these checkpoints have been “diverted to assist with the care, transport, and processing” of the migrants at the Del Rio International Bridge.
Breitbart separately reported that the Biden administration also shut down checkpoints in the Del Rio Sector, again to deal with the Del Rio surge.
This shutdown began at 12 am on Friday. It included three checkpoints. Also, two more checkpoints stopped doing vehicle inspections, although they continued to process and detain migrants.
As of Saturday morning, reports indicate that the Biden administration was moving migrants from the Del Rio International bridge using school buses. These migrants were taken to El Paso, Texas, for processing. It is unclear exactly how many have been moved thus far, but reports suggest less than a thousand.
The Biden administration claims that starting Sunday it will send thousands of these migrants back to their home country.
