According to the dashboard for the city of El Paso, Texas, there has been an enormous influx of migrants crossing the border into the city from Mexico. As of Wednesday morning, little over 5,700 migrants remained in the custody of the Border Patrol.
On the other hand, residents of El Paso have expressed to NewsNation that they are more concerned about migrants who are attempting to avoid the law than they are about migrants who are willing to turn themselves in.
Peter Jaquez, who is acting as the chief of the El Paso Sector of the United States Border Patrol, stated that there have been an average of approximately 2,400 migrant interactions every day with people entering the area during the last weekend.
On Tuesday, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas was in El Paso to conduct an assessment of the current situation. According to the El Paso Times, Mayorkas stated during his visit that the administration is in communication with the Mexican government, but he declined to provide any other details.
Residents of El Paso who live in the region have indicated to NewsNation that they are feeling overwhelmed as a result of migrants entering their houses. “There has never been a time when this has occurred. Never. “I do not feel comfortable or protected at all in this location,” remarked a local homeowner named Carmen Wilburn.
In their home in El Paso, Wilburn provides care for her father, who is 86 years old. She reported that she frequently sees undocumented migrants jumping the fence and fleeing through her yard as well as the yards of her neighbors. They can conceal themselves in the bushes on the side of our house, which is why I do not want my granddaughter to stay here. “It’s terrifying,” Wilburn remarked.

Another resident, Josie Martinez, who lives down the street, reported that two males who were jogging through the area stopped her and begged her to give them a ride. Josie Martinez lives on the same street. Martinez explained, “They came and they passed, and then they stopped me as I was getting into my car. They asked me if I could just give them a ride to a motel or somewhere else, and I told them I’m sorry, but I can’t.”
Following their release from Border Patrol custody, hundreds of migrants have set up makeshift camps in the city streets of El Paso. They are not attempting to elude capture; rather, they are making an effort to proceed with their quest. A migrant named Akalena Salyah from Nicaragua stated that she is attempting to make her way to Wisconsin to be with her daughter.
We do not own a home in Nicaragua at this time. We lost our house. According to Salah, “my daughter came to this country in search of employment and in the hopes of purchasing a home.” According to KTSM, a news affiliate of NewsNation, on Sunday there was a robbery in El Paso that targeted four migrants at a bus stop. This occurred even though there has not been an increase in overall crime.
According to Bradley’s investigation, sources within DHS have confirmed that more than 73,000 migrants successfully escaped law enforcement along the border last month. According to sources within the Border Patrol, contingency measures have been put into place to begin processing migrants at ports of entry as soon as Title 42 comes to an end on December 21. This comes as migrants continue to cross into the El Paso Sector from Juarez.
