Texas Mayor Declares Emergency Due To Immigration Swell

By 12/18/2022 6:23 PMNo CommentsBy YidInfo Staff

A state of emergency was issued by the mayor of a border city in Texas on Saturday due to worries about the community’s capacity to handle an expected flood of migrants crossing the Southern border.

According to the El Paso Times, El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser declared a state of emergency to provide the city access to more resources that will likely be required once Title 42 expulsions end on December 21.

Although Leeser had previously opposed declaring an emergency, he claimed that seeing people out in the cold on the city streets prompted him to act, according to the Times.

At a news conference on Saturday night, Leeser stated, “That’s not how we want to treat people.

A decision made by D.C. If no other appeals are filed, restrictions that have recently stopped tens of thousands of migrants from applying for asylum in the United States will still be eliminated on Wednesday.

After Wednesday, when daily arrests and street releases could reach up to 6,000 per day, according to the Times, Leeser said the surge would be “extraordinary.”

According to Mario D’Agostino, the deputy city manager for El Paso, the declaration of a state of emergency would provide the city more flexibility in running more extensive sheltering operations and providing more transportation for asylum seekers.
