A family of immigrants from Ecuador spoke with Breitbart Texas on the outside of the community Migrant Resource Center about their journey from El Paso to Laredo, and finally to San Antonio, after being moved by federal agents. According to the two adults and two kids, they crossed into the U. S. from Juarez, anticipating to be released in El Paso.
The migrant family claims they were spirited away from the Border Patrol processing station in El Paso soon after crossing and brought to an airport about a week ago. The migrants claim they were then flown to Laredo, where different agents processed all of their asylum petitions. According to the family, they were processed & released into a shelter in Laredo prior to getting bused to San Antonio. They were transported to the city Migrant Resource Center after arriving, where they are currently awaiting financial aid to fly to New York.
The family claims to have stayed three days in the shelter due to a lack of funds. Carlos, the dad of the two kids, says he intends to reach New York and look for employment.
The Ecuadorian migrant family’s situation in San Antonio is not an outlier. An examination of documents for ICE Air Operations trips from El Paso to Laredo reveals at least eight such flights have taken place since Tuesday. ICE Flight Operations contracted carriers into Airways, as well as World Atlantic Airlines, flew up to two flights on a few days of the week on MD83 and Boeing 737 aircraft. Each plane will transport at least 150 people.
According to a whistleblower within Customs and Border Security who wasn’t authorized to talk to the news media, the flights have now become routine as a result of the increased migrant intake around El Paso. The flights are an effort to “decompress” custody and processing centers as the agency faces an unprecedented inflow of migrants and now leads the country in fear. According to the source, between 1,500 to 1,800 immigrants are apprehended every day in the El Paso area.
According to the source, the Border Patrol is forced to release migrants right onto city streets due to the excessive amount of migrant crossings.
According to a new Border Report story, well over 500 migrants were discharged onto the streets of El Paso during the last three days in November.
Agents in the El Paso Area apprehended the largest amount of migrants for the second month in a row. Over 53,000 of the 206,000 immigrants detained in November entered the country through Juarez. The November arrests in El Paso mark an almost 279 percent increase over the 14,000 migrants captured in Nov. 2021.
