The situation at the southern border is expected to get worse as border states begin preparing for the influx of migrants.
An intelligence alert released by the US border patrol stated that thousands of illegal immigrants are heading to the country.
The agency noted that about 40,000 illegal immigrants were being held in Chiapas, Mexico, near the border with Guatemala. They are expected to reach the U.S. states in the coming weeks.
According to a source, Chiapas is currently asking the Mexican government for travel documents that would allow the immigrants to legally go north.
Also, about 15,000 illegal immigrants from Oaxaca are currently on their way to the U.S.
In El Paso, Texas, over 7,000 migrants were apprehended this weekend. Border patrol agents were overwhelmed by the large number of people crossing the border.
Even CNN is reporting on the situation at the border. The channel noted that the situation has become so dire that it has taken up the issue.
The network claimed that everyone can agree that the US is in the midst of a border crisis. It cited one of the main arguments between Democrats and Republicans. CNN stated that no one is now questioning the surge of migrants that could occur due to an imminent policy shift.
The story shifts to show that Title 42 of the Trump-era policy will be lifted on Wednesday.
According to CNN, the border is already strained to the point that it could reach unforeseeable limits.
Most liberal political leaders have also acknowledged the border crisis.
According to Gavin Newsom, the governor of California, the state does not have the resources to address the influx of migrants.
He also stated that the country is entering a crisis that will break out unless the government takes responsibility for its actions.
The White House, on the other hand, has ignored the issue. Instead, Joe Biden stated that there are other important things that the country should be worrying about.
If the thousands of illegal immigrants who are currently crossing the border into the U.S. are ignored by Biden, he will be blamed by both Democrats and Republicans for failing to address the issue.
