Majority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (R-NY) got on the Senate floor Tuesday to call an end to migrant deportations. According to him, the expulsion of anyone at the border is “hateful and xenophobic.”

“So I urge President Biden and Secretary Mayorkas to immediately put a stop to these expulsions and to end this Title 42 policy at our southern border,” Schumer said. “We cannot continue these hateful and xenophobic Trump policies that disregard our refugee laws.”

Then, Schumer attended the We Are Home rally just outside the capitol. There more advocates for undocumented migrants gathered.

However, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has already claimed that he can do little to change Title 42. To hear him tell it, not even the President of the United States can change it.  Title 42 is actually a public health order from the Center For Disease Control and Prevention. It remains in place “to protect not only the American people but the migrants themselves,” Mayorkas said back in May. Because it is “tied to data,” Mayorkas said it’s a matter of public health standards that it will be lifted, not an executive decision.

Meanwhile, the Del Rio International Bridge in Texas hosted over 16,000 migrants this past week alone. August saw over 208,000 cross the southern border.

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.”
