Biden Admin Taking Action At US-Mexico Border

( – With border crossings once again beginning to rise after the brief lull following the end of Title 42, the Biden administration has begun to take action to address the uptick in illegal aliens crossing the border, Fox News reported.

A spokesperson with Customs and Border Protection told Fox last week that the agency has been working to address the “large numbers of migrants” that are crossing the desert near Ajo by increasing “personnel and transportation resources” in the area.

Several media outlets reported that the Border Patrol had erected a holding area surrounded by chain link fencing at the station in Ajo. However, the Customs and Border Patrol spokesperson said that the migrants held in the area are kept in the shade and monitored while they await transportation to a better-equipped facility.

The spokesperson told Fox that Border Patrol has made it a priority to quickly transport illegal aliens away from the desert areas, which are especially dangerous in the summer. The illegals are moved to other Border Patrol facilities where they receive food, water, and medical care.

The outdoor shaded areas at the Border Patrol station in Ajo are only utilized when necessary for “very short times” as the illegals await transportation to larger Border Patrol facilities, the spokesperson said.

There are other signs that the Biden administration is bracing for another surge in border crossings.

It was reported earlier this month, the Pentagon was leaving some of the US service members temporarily deployed to the border in place beyond the 90-day deployment.

When the Pentagon initially ordered the troop deployment in May, all 1,500 were to leave on August 8. But the Pentagon announced that 400 would remain in place until the end of August.

Fox reported earlier this month that the Department of Homeland Security said in an internal memo that it was seeking volunteers to help with processing migrants crossing the border.
