After crossing the border alone, children sheltered at Fort Bliss in Texas are attempting to escape according to report from CBS News Wednesday. Federal officials are now placing some children in 24-hour surveillance to keep them from escaping and also self-harming. The facility is made up of tents housing hundreds of migrants.

The Department of Homeland Security recently changed how the U.S. processes unaccompanied minors found at the border. Children are now sheltered by Human Health Services rather than Customs and Border Protection.

“They do not belong in a Border Patrol station,” DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said at the time. “Children belong in the shelter of Health and Human Services.”

As a result, migrant children have spent less and less time with Border Patrol. Back in March, each child spent an average of 133 hours in the custody of CBP. Now, in May, the average decreased to 26 hours per child. But, there is no data on how much time is spent in the custody of HHS.

“There’s very little communicated to these kids about the process and amount of time they’ll be here,” a federal government employee who volunteered at the “tent city” told CBS News. “So they live in constant doubt, uncertainty and fear about what’s gonna happen to them.”

“They’ve gone from a small cage at Border Patrol to a larger cage at Fort Bliss,” another federal government employee familiar with the site told CBS News. “It’s a juvenile detention facility.”

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’

At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.

Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”

Speaking on the Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”

“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”

“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
