San Diego County has answered a call by HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra to house unaccompanied minors who cross the U.S. border illegally. Under the federally funded HHS Refugee Resettlement Program, children who cross the border without parents will be offered food, shelter, and healthcare until they can be processed. In San Diego, 70 of the 700 girls currently being housed at the San Diego Convention Center have tested positive for COVID-19.

According to The Washington Post, phase two of the migration surge at the border could contain a lot of families:
DHS expects approximately 500,000 to 800,000 migrants to arrive as part of a family group during the 2021 fiscal year that ends in September, a quantity that would equal or exceed the record numbers who entered in 2019, according to government data reviewed by The Washington Post. Officials are racing to find facilities to house these families ahead of their release, along with additional staff to process an increase in humanitarian and asylum claims.

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.

Following reports that there are more than 13,000 unaccompanied minors in U.S. custody and that steady streams of people illegally crossing the border continue to add to an already massive processing backlog for ICE, U.S. Customs and Border Protection has asked for air support to move people to states along the Canadian border, according to the Washington Post.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told reporters the border patrol agents he met warned him about "suspected terrorists are trying to cross into the United States via Mexico." The left went crazy, calling McCarthy a liar or laughing at him. Rep. Reuben Gallego (D-AZ) tweeted that as the chairman of the subcommittee on Intelligence and Special Operations he never heard of this news.
