Over A Million Migrants Expected at US-Mexico Border in 2021

The report referenced, published by NPR on March 23, featured former acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf stating that career agency officials stressed problems would arise at the U.S. -Mexico border if the new administration removed immigration policies such as "Remain in Mexico" and other asylum measures. They said, 'Get 66 million votes, sir, and the election's over.' We got 75 million and they said. you saw what happened, 10:30 in the evening, all of a sudden, they said, that's a odd thing, why are they closing up certain places. "The reversal of President Trump's successful immigration policies have created a tremendous incentive for illegal aliens to surge to the southern border".

"Caravans walking up the trails that go north from the Rio Grande River into outdoor holding pens where the Customs and Border Patrol was processing them", Cruz said.

"So I fully expect our border patrol agents to encounter over a million people this year".

More than 4,100 people are being held there, 3,400 of them children who are housed in eight pods separated by plastic dividers. "They are not six feet apart or three feet apart, they're not even six inches apart".

More than 2,000 unaccompanied migrant children have been held there for longer than a legal limit of 72 hours, Border Patrol official Oscar Escamilla said. "President Biden and his Administration are responsible for the resulting crisis at the border".

In his turn, former President Trump said on Saturday that he will most likely visit the border in the coming weeks.

The March total edges out the highest month in 2019, during the most recent border crisis. Trump urged Biden to finish the border wall, warning that if the "Remain-in-Mexico" policy is not reinstated, millions of migrants will flood into the USA, "destroying the world".

According to the Associated Press, more than 17,000 migrant children were in US custody as of Monday.
