Illegal crossings across the California-Mexico border increased by 51% in April compared to March, border officials said Friday. The increase has slowed legitimate travel and exhausted federal resources.

“For the April 1- 26 time period CBP officers at California land border crossings encountered 1,632 inadmissible individuals, compared to 1,081 inadmissible individuals the same time period last month,” a Customs and Border Patrol release said.

The report warned that passenger and cargo travel has been impacted by the illegal immigrant increase.

“With these increases, operations at the border crossings have been impacted as CBP officials must dedicate resources to securing the port of entry and processing these individuals, repositioning resources that would otherwise be dedicated to critical passenger and cargo processing, leading to increased wait times for the traveling public,” the report warned.

With COVID-19 precautions, however, the border remains closed to those who are not essential.

 “On a daily basis, CBP officers along the California/Mexico border continue to restrict travelers that are not exempt from crossing the border for non-essential travel purposes,” the report said.

Migrants refuse to go to Brooklyn cruise terminal shelter, return to Manhattan hotel

It’s the details bleeding heart liberals fail to think about. Take New York City as a perfect example where the liberal city cannot welcome hundreds of thousands of migrants with open arms as it says the rest of the country should do.

Last week saracarter.com reported on how the Big Apple was turning a Brooklyn Cruise ship terminal into shelter for migrant families flooding into the city. That plan has already backfired.

More than 50 migrants camped outside the Watson Hotel in Manhattan in protest against the cruise terminal. On Sunday night over a dozen police officers responded to the hotel to provide crowd control.

One activist told the New York Post that the migrants feel the shelter is “not livable” after several migrants went to the Terminal shelter over the weekend but promptly returned to the hotel.

The migrants preferred to sleep outside the hotel saying that the shelter had no heat, privacy or blankets.

The migrants hung a banner demanding permanent free housing and to “cancel rent.”

A spokesperson for Mayor Eric Adams said the city continues to “surpass our moral obligations” in caring for the influx of migrants.

“More than 42,000 asylum seekers have arrived in New York City since last spring and we continue to surpass our moral obligations as we provide asylum seekers with shelter, food, health care, education, and a host of other services,” spokesperson Fabien Levy told the New York Post.

“The facilities at Brooklyn Cruise Terminal will provide the same services as every other humanitarian relief center in the city, and the scheduled relocations to Brooklyn Cruise Terminal this weekend took place as planned,” Levy added. “We remain in serious need of support from both our state and federal governments.”
