President Joe Biden’s frontier catastrophe is about to strike close to home.
With time running out on the Title 42 policy from the COVID era, one of the few remaining obstacles to unrestrained illegal immigration into the country is about to be eliminated.
And instead of taking measures to control the border, the Biden administration made an overnight decision that will make matters worse, Bill Melugin of Fox News reported on Tuesday.
Citing sources from Customs and Border Protection, Melugin wrote that “top border officials in Washington, D.C., have decided to authorize all Border Patrol sectors to begin ‘safe’ mass releases of migrants to city streets if non-governmental organizations don’t have the capacity to hold them.”
NEW: Per multiple CBP sources, last night, CBP & Border Patrol leadership made decision to authorize all Border Patrol sectors to begin “safe” street releases of migrants to communities across border *if* NGO shelters and CBP facilities do not have the capacity to hold them.

“Per multiple CBP sources, last night, CBP & Border Patrol leadership made decision to authorize all Border Patrol sectors to begin ‘safe’ street releases of migrants to communities across border *if* NGO shelters and CBP facilities do not have the capacity to hold them,” Melugin wrote in a Twitter post published early Tuesday.
It is not a matter of “if” those sanctuaries fill up; rather, it is a matter of “when.” And this is likely to occur sooner than the Biden administration would prefer.
“NGOs are quickly approaching their limits to house migrants and tens of thousands more migrants are expected to surge into the United States once the Title 42 public health order is lifted on May 11,” Melugin wrote the Fox News report. “The city of El Paso, Texas, has already seen thousands of migrants camped out on the sidewalks.”
In light of this, the border crisis Biden has inflicted on the country is likely to lose whatever semblance of order remains, as it was dependent on Title 42, a public health policy that permits the expulsion of immigrants based on the threat of infectious diseases.
With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic during the administration of former President Donald Trump, Title 42 was invoked as a key weapon against illegal immigration. In March of this year alone, Melugin reported that “nearly half of all migrant encounters ended in a Title 42 expulsion.”
Massive numbers of foreign nationals south of the frontier are aware that Title 42 will soon become obsolete, as the pandemic’s worst days have passed.
On Sunday, Melugin posted a video to Twitter of a long procession of immigrants who had crossed the border at Brownsville, Texas, which is part of the Rio Grande Valley sector of the Border Patrol.
NEW: Remarkable video from our Fox drone team shows an enormous line of hundreds of migrants who just crossed illegally into Brownsville, TX this evening. A large majority of them are single adults.

Melugin wrote: “The RGV continues to see a massive surge of illegal crossings ahead of T42 drop.” So a frontier that the Biden White House has already turned into a catastrophe will become even more overwhelmed.
“This means in coming days we will likely begin to see mass releases of migrants at bus stops, gas stations, supermarkets etc in communities across the border as illegal crossings continue to surge to record highs ahead of T42 drop in 2 days,” Melugin wrote Tuesday.

As one Border Patrol source told Melugin,”The dam is about to break.”
If there is a silver lining to the latest development in this catastrophe, it is that the American people may begin to understand the consequences of the border capitulation Biden and his Democratic Party have committed. They may recall that former President Donald Trump’s efforts to defend American sovereignty were incessantly maligned by the establishment media.
Already, self-proclaimed “sanctuary” cities like New York and Chicago are on the verge of being inundated by the illegal immigrants they claimed to welcome back when Arizona, Texas, and California were the primary problem states. (The mayor of New York, Eric Adams, has publicly compared the situation to a burning house.)
Now, according to Melugin’s report, even the smallest amount of legal procedure regarding illegal immigration will be swept away by the tidal wave of “asylum seekers” taking advantage of Biden’s failure to use federal government powers to protect his country and its citizens from what amounts to an invasion from abroad.
It is a disaster that will affect the entire nation. There is a high possibility that it will also affect the dishonest blunderer in the White House.
