The ICE is requesting volunteers to send towards the US-Mexico border as a migrant complex is beyond its capacity.
According to media reports, the migrant complex is around 7 times over its capacity with reports indicating how kids are being forced to sleep across the ground, due to a lack of beds in detention centers.
The ICE’s acting assistant director, Michael Meade, who is in charge of field operations mentioned how an immediate deployment of volunteers to severe at the border was of the utmost essence. Moreover, he also sent out an email to his senior staff regarding the possible upcoming challenges in the next few months.
Currently, around 3500 teens as well as kids remain unaccompanied and are hence being held at the Customs Border Patrol’s detention centers. These are designed for adults and have come into play after Joe Biden’s ease in immigration rules that fueled a massive surge in migrants who crossed the border.
However, what really raised so many eyebrows is how the current US president fails to admit any form of migrant crisis going on at the border.
Meanwhile, President Joe Biden’s private officials warned the administration how it can no longer cope with the massive influx of kids from all angles. However, the White House continues to release the same statement which revolves around how it is ‘an enormous challenge.’
Despite the massive denials that took place in public, Biden’s administration opted to roll back a policy from Trump’s era. This allowed adults who picked up undocumented kids to be detained by the country’s border agents. This move hoped to pick up speed over the processing of the migrants via the system.
Ever since he took office, President Biden opted to lift up Donald Trump’s policy which forced migrants to stay in Mexico as they underwent the major legal processing to enter into America.
In the same way, Biden’s policy narrowed down ICE’s criteria for making arrests as well as deportations while stopping the construction of former President Trump’s border wall.
