As the border crisis quickly devolves into a major humanitarian crisis, the Biden administration is scrambling to process those illegal aliens whom the Border Patrol manages to stop (many thousands more are estimated to evade Border Patrol).
To that end, they have erected a new tent facility in Eagle Pass, Texas and have hired 19 new ‘processing coordinators’ for El Paso.
U.S. border officials in Eagle Pass, Texas have opened another temporary migrant processing facility to handle the growing number of undocumented immigrants crossing the border illegally.
The 90,000-square-foot facility is located next to the Border Patrol’s Eagle Pass South Station, which also houses the Del Rio Sector Central Processing Center, according to a news release, which describes the facility as similar to that of recently constructed soft-sided facilities.
The facility, which sits on 5 acres, is weatherproof, climate-controlled, and is expected to provide ample areas for eating, sleeping, and personal hygiene, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said.
CBP released videos and photos of the facility head of its opening. They show shower pods and holding pods, as well as a large processing room equipped with computers and surveillance cameras.
As these new tent/pod ‘processing’ cities pop up along the border, they must be staffed. El Paso has reportedly hired 19 new civilian illegal alien ‘processing coordinators’ as part of a $13 million allocation.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection in El Paso is getting extra help with 19 new employees as its agents deal with an influx of migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border. Dozens of people graduated Saturday from Border Patrol’s “Class 01” to become civilian processing coordinators.
The new positions, created in January, focus “on performing administrative tasks related to processing individuals apprehended by Border Patrol agents,” according to CBP.
$13 million was allocated in 2020 to fund this program of new civilian coordinators. Part of the first class will be coming to El Paso and the Rio Grande Valley.
