EXCLUSIVE: Immigrants tired of waiting for Title 42’s end to surge across borders into Texas


Whether Title 42 was over or not, immigrants said they were tired of waiting and flocked across the Rio Grande to the Eagle Pass area of ​​operation, Texas. As of this weekend, more than 3,600 people were registered, according to a source working with US Customs and Border Protection. This surpasses the total arrests of more than 2,800 migrants in the Del Rio area last weekend.

Border patrol officials called all agents at Eagle Pass on Sunday as the number of migrants crossing the border illegally from Mexico to Texas increased. On Sunday evening, large groups of more than 250 immigrants crossed near Normandy, Texas, while others crossed the Eagle Pass.

Another group of about 300 migrants is crossing the border as this article posted. And at a nearby hydroelectric power station, agents found another large group of 100 immigrants. This resulted in a total of more than 700 immigrant arrests in two hours on Sunday evening.

Agents identified most of the immigrants crossing on Sunday evening as Hondurans. Some Colombian immigrants also crossed.

Another source told Breitbart that dozens of migrants are waiting hours for transit as Eagle Pass stations focus attention on large group crossings in more public places. Even National Guard soldiers serving in Operation Lone Star in Texas can detain migrants until transportation arrives.

On May 17, Del Rio sector chief patrol agent Jason D. Owens tweeted that his agents had arrested 2,849 immigrants over the weekend, Brightbart Texas reported. That number is likely to drop as the total is expected to hit 4,000 this weekend.

Immigrants do not seem to know or understand that, due to a federal court order, Title 42 will not end on Monday. They simply expressed that they were tired of waiting.

Sources said there were no resources available to transport migrants from the border to processing stations. The news of dropping migrants off at Eagle Pass Stripes convenience stores seems to have overloaded the NGOs that regularly protect migrants.

Crosswalks are not without danger. In the middle of the night on Saturday night, seven migrants were swept under their feet and border patrol officers jumped into action to save their lives, Breitbart Texas reported.

BORSTAR agents used throwing bags, water rescue boards and personal flotation devices to successfully lead all seven migrants out of the darkness of the night, Chief Owens said.

Not all immigrants are as lucky as these seven. Earlier this week, Brightbart Texas reported that Del Rio sector agents had recovered the bodies of three immigrants. Two of the migrants drowned and agents found a third on a ranch near Uvalde, Texas.

Between April 1 and May 15, approximately 513,000 migrants crossed the southwestern border with Mexico illegally. These figures reflect concerns cited in the April Southwest Border Migration Report and unofficial figures obtained from law enforcement agencies within the CBP.
