Texas mayor sounds alarms as migration crisis reaches ‘breaking point’ in El Paso

The mayor of Texas revealed Saturday that the city of El Paso has reached “a breaking point” due to the huge surge in migrants entering the country from Mexico, with more than 2,000 people applying for asylum each day, filling up shelters, and taxing resources.

Texas Mayor Oscar Leeser stated at a news conference that “the city of El Paso only has so many resources and we have come to … a breaking point right now.”

A larger influx of immigrants has already arrived, mostly from Venezuela, travelling hazardous routes on buses and cargo trains, to border communities in Mexico close to San Diego, California, and the Texas cities of El Paso and Eagle Pass.

Following a recent decline in migrant numbers, President Joe Biden is now the target of a new round of political criticism as the US prepares for the 2024 election.

He claimed that many Venezuelan migrants lacked the means of transportation to reach their final destinations and that the 400 people who currently reside in El Paso’s shelter must also be accessible to assist the city’s homeless population.

About 350 to 400 people were entering El Paso each day six weeks ago, but during the past several days, 2,000 or more have entered.
