CDC allows migrant children ‘cages’ to fill to 100% as border crisis intensifies

The Centers for Disease Control is relaxing COVID-19 restrictions on facilities that house unaccompanied child migrants crossing into the United States through the roughly 2,000 mile border with Mexico. Why? Because the Biden administration is being overwhelmed by the tidal wave of illegal alien migration since over turning former President Trump’s strict border policies. The move to fill the facilities to 100% capacity is an effort to house the droves of children arriving to the U.S.

A memo obtained by Axios found the agency warning “facilities should plan for and expect to have COVID-19 cases.”

The CDC is sidelining health restrictions as a crisis at the southern border intensifies.

Some migrant children told Sara Carter stories of jumping onto trains to get to the border and horror stories of other children falling of trains or disappearing along the four month journey from Honduras.

Sara Carter spoke live from the border Friday night on Hannity, reporting that children are flooding into the country daily and that border agents are “overwhelmed.”

“There are roughly 700 to 1,000 undocumented migrants, some of them unaccompanied minors, pouring into Texas daily, ” Carter said live from McAllen, Tex. “There is a crisis on the southern border as well, with the drug cartels battling it out, as well as human traffickers.”

Carter confirmed children are entering the country alone, some as young as four-years-old.

Some migrant children told Carter stories of jumping onto trains to get to the border and horror stories of other children falling of trains or disappearing along the four month journey from Honduras.

Carter found that migrants misunderstood Biden’s stop on deportations for 100 days “as an invitation to arrive to the United States.”

Children appeared in Texas without parents, or with adults who were strangers and potentially paid by parents who are back in Honduras.

“The crisis couldn’t be any worse,” Carter said. “More and more undocumented children are coming across the border. There’s a big concern here as well with the spread of COVID and that the majority of people coming through here are not being tested.”

This lack of testing and the new policy change to allow facilities to fill to 100% is the only option, Axios reports, according to the CDC memo.

It says the “only available options” for minors coming across the border without parents is “prolonged stays at [Customs & Border Protection] facilities operating significantly above COVID-19 capacities,” Axios reports.

The memo says the Customs and Border Patrol does not have the ability to follow pandemic guidelines.

“At this time, CBP does not have adequate space for physical distancing, quarantine of persons exposed to COVID-19 or isolation of ill or infected persons,” the memo reads.

The first month of 2023 at the southern border is already looking bleak; just take a look at the numbers. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in El Paso, Texas have seized over 500 pounds of hard drugs in January alone.

Additionally, the agency apprehended 62 people they were able to identify as having outstanding arrest warrants. Among the criminals were sex offenders.

The devastating numbers are not surprising, given that in December, the El Paso mayor declared a sate of emergency “after record numbers of people were released onto city streets and sidewalks by the Biden administration” reports The Center Square.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott also “sent 400 National Guard troops to restore order and provide humanitarian assistance” adds the media outlet. Border Patrol data showed in December, 55,766 illegal foreign nationals were apprehended in the El Paso Sector.

There were also 32,632 known and recorded gotaways in December, meaning they were able to evade getting captured by law and immigration officials. law enforcement officers told The Center Square that despite the skyrocket high numbers, “these seizures and apprehensions represent a fraction of the amount of people and drugs being trafficked to the southern border between ports of entry.”
