Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration is reportedly going to take action to remove thousands upon thousands of illegal aliens who have entered the U.S. at the Del Rio Port of Entry in recent days.
“Details are yet to be finalized but will likely involve five to eight flights a day, according to the official with direct knowledge of the plans who was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity,” The AP reported. “San Antonio, the nearest major city, may be among the departure cities.”
The move comes as thousands of illegal aliens, a significant portion of whom are Haitian nationals, have arrived in the area since September 8th with officials expecting thousands more to enter.
“The Southwest border has been inundated in recent months with a surge in unauthorized crossings not seen in more than two decades,” The New York Times reported. “More than 200,000 people crossed last month, bringing the total this fiscal year to more than 1.5 million.”
The Biden administration announced late on Friday that it was moving to temporarily shut down the Del Rio Port of Entry along the Texas-Mexico border due to the dire situation on the border.
“U.S. Customs and Border Protection today announced that the Office of Field Operations (OFO) Del Rio Port of Entry will temporarily close and re-route traffic from Del Rio to Eagle Pass to more effectively manage resources and ensure uninterrupted flow of trade and travel,” the agency said in a statement. “This temporary closure and shift is necessary in order for CBP to respond to urgent safety and security needs presented by an influx of migrants into Del Rio and is effective immediately.”
Biden has also received intense backlash from officials in Texas over his disastrous handling of the border.
“Six hours after U.S. Customs and Border Protection requested help from Texas to close ports of entry and secure the border, the Biden Administration has now flip-flopped to a different strategy that abandons border security and instead makes it easier for people to cross illegally and for cartels to exploit the border,” Texas Governor Greg Abbott, a Republican, said in a statement this week. “The Biden Administration is in complete disarray and is handling the border crisis as badly as the evacuation from Afghanistan. I have directed the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas National Guard to maintain their presence at and around ports of entry to deter crossings.”
