The U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency has recently declared that the border crisis in El Paso, Texas is at a “breaking point” due to the mass number of illegal immigrants attempting to stream into the country, and has now ordered the relocation of 750 more agents.
This past Monday alone, the CBP announced it had confronted some 4,000 illegal immigrants, and some 1,000 more successfully crossed over illegally on Wednesday.
“CBP is facing an unprecedented humanitarian and border security crisis all along our Southwest border, and nowhere has that crisis manifested more acutely than here in El Paso.”-CBP Commissioner Kevin K.McAleenan
According to a Fox News report, “McAleenan said the Border Patrol is on pace for over 100,000 apprehensions and encounters with migrants – mostly from Central America seeking asylum in the U.S.”

President Donald Trump has made his stand at the U.S. southern border and has put the U.S. military there to defend against what he and many other Americans believe is an orchestrated illegal immigration invasion by left wing groups and Latin American nations.
Like most congressional Democrats, Democratic presidential candidate, Senator Kamala Harris sees the immigration problem along the border in a humanitarian light. But instead of balancing the border crisis as one of security and human rights, Harris ignores the security and health threat the current immigration crisis is creating, and pushes the human rights-only narrative.
“What’s happening at our border in El Paso is unmistakably a humanitarian crisis. Leaving families outdoors in cramped, unsanitary conditions with little or no access to hot food and showers is cruel and a violation of their human rights.”-Sen. Kamala Harris
At this pace, will the U.S. be able to handle an estimated 1,000,000 illegal immigrants expecting to cross over in 2019?
