Texas Mayor Declares a State of Emergency as Community Faces a Wave of Illegal Immigrants

(Headline USA) The mayor of El Paso declared a state of emergency Saturday over concerns about the community’s inability to handle an anticipated influx of illegal immigrants across the Southern border after Title 42 expires on Wednesday.

El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser issued the state of emergency declaration to allow the city on the U.S. border with Mexico to tap into additional resources that are expected to become necessary after Title 42 expulsions end on Dec. 21, the El Paso Times reported.

Restrictions that have prevented hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants from seeking asylum in the U.S. in recent years are still set to be lifted Wednesday, unless further appeals are filed.

Leeser added that the increase would be “incredible” after Wednesday, when daily apprehensions and street releases could reach up to 6,000 per day, the Times reported.
