DHS Mayorkas Finally Goes to the Border as Chaos and Violence Consume El Paso; Announces It's Not Biden's Policies, But the "Whole System," Which Is to Blame

Weird, seems like President Trump had the border under control under his watch.

DHS Secretary Mayorkas, facing investigations and perhaps impeachment hearings when Republicans take control of the House in January, visited El Paso on Tuesday. His main excuse for the poor performance by his department in managing the U.S.-Mexico border is that the immigration system is broken. He spoke with U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents as morale is at an all-time low and suicides of agents are at an historic high.

I suppose we can give Mayorkas credit for showing up in El Paso. It's more than Sleepy Joe Biden has done. The border czar, Kamala Harris, visited El Paso once but hasn't been seen since. Joe Biden told the press when he recently visited Arizona that he has other more important things to do than visit the southern border.

Nonetheless, the visit by Mayorkas produced little. He offered no specifics on how the administration plans to handle the increase in migrants crossing the border once Title 42 ends next week. Shouldn't a revised plan already be in place by now, with only seven days left before Title 42 ends on December 21? It indicates there really is no plan to change anything.

El Paso is really being targeted by illegal migrants in recent days. Thousands of migrants have crossed the border, some escorted by Mexican police. Officials in El Paso are so overwhelmed and their facilities to handle illegal immigrants are so overcrowded that they are simply releasing the migrants into the streets of the city.

El Paso is a disaster area:

As freezing weather approaches El Paso, a homeless shelter reports it is beyond capacity due to the surge in migrants being released on the city's streets. Elsewhere in the city, two migrants were attacked and robbed outside a bus station by another migrant illegally present from Mexico.

As thousands of migrants camp out along the Rio Grande in Mexico and along the streets of El Paso, freezing conditions are expected to hit. Five homeless shelters report they are unable to accept new people as they are either at or above capacity, KVIA ABC7 in El Paso reported.

John Martin, deputy director for the Opportunity Center in El Paso told CBS4 news that two of his shelters are already severely over capacity. His organization calls for serving all homeless people regardless of country of origin.

"We're one of the few shelters that will accept everybody, but even then when we get full, we're full," Martin told the local CBS affiliate. "There comes a point where we just have to say no, simply because we just don't have the physical space to put people. We don't want to say no."

According to a dashboard run by the City of El Paso, Border Patrol officials are holding 5,628 migrants in custody. This is up by more than 500 from Monday in a facility that is already well above capacity. The dashboard reports the release of nearly 500 people daily onto the city's streets and an additional 800 into community shelters operated by NGOs.

Bill Melugin has been reporting on the thousands of illegal aliens pouring across the border, arriving on buses -- escorted by Mexican police.

It is time for more buses and chartered flights to Sanctuary States and Cities. This cannot be permitted to go on without the public even knowing about it, with the media covering up for Biden.
