Once again, the #American
people are on the hook for #migrants
being dumped in their states. A report is out that Border patrol agents released around 1,600 migrants into #LasCruces, #NewMexico
over a ten-day period, according to authorities. This forced the city to spend $75,000 on #humanitarianassistance,
which of course comes from the citizens of the city and more than likely many outside the city.
Officials said that #BorderPatrol
agents dropped off 105 “#asylumseekers”
on Saturday to a local high school. Agents dropped off another 56 on Sunday morning, KVIA ABC7 reported Monday morning.
Border Patrol officials began releasing migrants apprehended in the #ElPaso
Sector on April 12, the El Paso ABC affiliate reported. The releases come as the sector reached the breaking point with thousands of #CentralAmerican
migrant families crossing the border illegally in #WestTexas
and the New Mexico boot heel.
The City of Las Cruces responded by setting up a network of temporary shelters to house the “asylum seekers” while they attempt to arrange travel to other parts of the U.S., the Las Cruces Sun News reported. Nearly 1,200 were dropped off by Border Patrol agents during the first week alone.
According to Mayor Ken Miyagishima many of the migrants who arrive there are only there a short time and then move out. He told the local newspaper, "75 percent are gone." At any given time, the City (that's the people) is spending money to care for about 250 people at any given time. Talk about wealth redistribution!
But apparently, the cities are playing off one another and merely shuffling migrants around from city to city. According to the mayor, there are arrangements with #SantaFe
to take #migrants
in on a rotating basis. “It looks like they’ll be taking some. We just need to figure out transportation,” the mayor told the local newspaper. "We could easily handle 200, but not 200 a day,” the mayor explained. “That’s why I’m thinking if Santa Fe can do 150 to 200 every three days, I think it is more manageable.” 🖐🏾More @freedom_faction in comments👇🏾#ImmigrationInvasion #MassMigration #multicultural
