Overwhelmed Border Patrol Reportedly Considering Releasing Some Illegal Crossers Without a Court Date

“BP [Border Patrol] has no choice but to release people nearly immediately after apprehension because there is no space to hold people even to do necessary NTA paperwork”

The situation at the border keeps getting worse, despite the Biden administration’s refusal to call it a crisis. It seems like all norms and rules have been abandoned. Normalcy is not even a consideration.

The Border Patrol, which is already stretched to its limit, is now reportedly considering releasing some illegal crossers without even assigning them a court date.

Griff Jenkins and Morgan Phillips report at Fox News:

Border Patrol in Rio Grande Valley considering releasing illegal crossers into US without court date

Fox News has learned from a senior source with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) that a plan is under consideration for Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley Sector (RGV) to begin releasing illegal border crossers who claim asylum without issuing a Notice to Appear (NTA) – meaning they will depart custody without a court date.

Such a decision would be unprecedented if enacted and would place the responsibility of seeking an asylum hearing on the migrants through Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or legal assistance.

The source says the reasoning for the decision is that the situation has “become so dire that BP [Border Patrol] has no choice but to release people nearly immediately after apprehension because there is no space to hold people even to do necessary NTA paperwork.”

The process of issuing each migrant an NTA can take hours per individual or family. This would not apply to unaccompanied minors.

The RGV, based in Texas, is ground zero for the surge in border crossings and is more than 700% overcapacity.

This situation is not sustainable.

Yaron Steinbuch writes at the New York Post:

Top Border Patrol officials say the migrant ‘crisis’ is getting worse

Top Border Patrol officials said officers are “overwhelmed” by the influx of migrants at the US-Mexico border, a spiraling “crisis” that intensified this week when a gun battle between rival cartel gangs broke out in a Texas town.

“A week ago I would not have called this a crisis. Today it meets the definition. We are overwhelmed,” Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, told Fox News Wednesday night.

“We do not have the resources to stop the cartels from bringing in illegal aliens, from bringing in drugs, therefore we are in fact in a crisis,” he added.

On Tuesday, President Biden said he did not have any plans to travel to the southern border “at the moment” amid a surge in migrants.

The numbers are staggering.

CBS News reports:

U.S. races to find bed space for migrant children as number of unaccompanied minors in government custody hits 15,500

The U.S. government on Saturday was housing approximately 15,500 unaccompanied migrant minors, including 5,000 teenagers and children stranded in Border Patrol facilities not designed for long-term custody, according to government data reviewed by CBS News.

As of Saturday morning, more than 5,000 unaccompanied minors were being held in a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) tent holding facility in south Texas and other stations along the border with Mexico. According to the government records, unaccompanied children are spending an average of 136 hours in CBP custody, well beyond the 72-hour limit outlined in U.S. law.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) was also housing nearly 10,500 unaccompanied children in emergency housing facilities and shelters licensed by states to care for minors, department spokesperson Mark Weber told CBS News on Saturday.

How much longer is this going to be allowed to continue?

Weird…when was a law passed that every single person in the world who comes to our borders must be allowed in…given food..housing..medical care…transportation to loxation of choice…an education…and funds to live on…a job ahead of American citizens…

Why do they come here if America’s systemic racism will guarantee them misery?
Yeah, we all know the answer… and the Republicans need to utilize the left’s own words against them.

Cloward–Piven strategy Border style!

One of these days – sooner than later – something like this kind of crap will be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. But, you know, keep on pushing, lefties.

Immigration reform to progress spread and collateral damage at both ends of the bridge and throughout.

“become so dire that BP [Border Patrol] has no choice but to release people nearly immediately after apprehension because there is no space to hold people even to do necessary NTA paperwork.”

How about tossing them back over the border once, the second time send them back in a body bag?

We could automate return via human canon. That would require vacuum formed casings, which could also serve as caskets. pay $10 per for each returned casing, for reuse. I suspect that returnee’s will likely soil themselves upon launch, returned casings should not be cleaned before reuse.

A fully automated canon should be able to achieve a cycle of at least 30 per hour.

How does anyone know whether an illegal alien adolescent is still actually a child, and not a young 20 something?

That and the court date,, did it ever mean a thing to those people? The border is gone. Bite me destroyed it.

    Nooooo, it was eaten out by rot long before Biden became FICUS. Trump provided a temporary support for it, is all.

Can we release them in blue cities? DC. or SF. with a court date? Or back to Tiawanna.

“The process of issuing each migrant an NTA can take hours per individual or family. This would not apply to unaccompanied minors.”

Stupid people. Just do the forms for one person, then xerox them and hand them out to all the other people.

It’s not as if any of them are going to show up for their court dates anyway.

I think this is, in part, about hiding the actual numbers of people crossing the border. If they aren’t going to bother with a court date or doing the “necessary NTA paperwork” why bother counting them at all?

What’s the difference they don’t show up anyway.

If there’s no room to hold them, then you should simply send them back without any hearing at all. Period.

Of course, that’s what you should be doing anyway.
