WATCH: Illegals Swarm Busy El Paso Highway as City Hits “Breaking Point”
The city of El Paso is “reaching the breaking point” as unprecedented numbers of illegal aliens continue to slam the state of Texas, according to reports.
Nearly 7,500 ‘encounters’ were recorded during a 3-day span last week in Border Patrol’s El Paso Sector as untold more migrants slipped into the U.S. unchecked.
Footage of illegal aliens swarming a busy highway in El Paso was shared on social media.
The video was obtained by Washington Examiner reporter Anna Giaritelli who says Border Patrol officials are in a state of panic as agents are “pulled from the ‘line,’” despite the deluge of migrant entries.
“As a result, groups that cross border are walking across the highway into the city, evading arrest,” she wrote.
A video taken on Friday by Rep. Tony Gonzalez (R-TX) showed shocking overcrowding at Border Patrol’s Central Processing Center in El Paso.
Around 4,600 illegal aliens were being held at the facility, which was only designed to accommodate up to 1,040 people.
“El Paso reaching the breaking point…” wrote Fox News correspondent Griff Jenkins.
The video caught the attention of Twitter CEO Elon Musk who responded, “Why do so few report about millions of people crossing the border?”
Federal authorities have released nearly 90,000 illegal aliens into El Paso since Aug. 22, according to data reviewed by Giaritelli.
On Saturday, El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser declared a state of emergency as his city braces for even more illegals to flood the area when Title 42 is lifted on Wednesday.
“Our asylum seekers are not safe,” Leeser said at a press conference. “We have hundreds and hundreds on the street and that’s not the way we treat our people.”
The Department of Homeland Security is projecting that 18,000 foreign nationals may cross the southern border every day after Title 42 ends.
