The Border Patrol Union is fuming after the Department of Homeland Security tipped off illegal immigrants on Monday night that a “targeted enforcement operation” would be staged in Texas to remove or detain them just two days before the end of Title 42.

The illegal immigrants were reportedly informed of the operation hours before it was set to take place. Agents from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers will be conducting the operation on Tuesday in El Paso where approximately 2,200 migrants are currently camped out or living on the streets a few blocks from major ports of entry that connect the city with Juárez, Mexico.
“Nothing like publicly announcing that dangerous people will be arrested, while warning them ahead of time exactly where to run and hide to avoid arrest,” the Border Patrol Union angrily tweeted late Monday evening.
The National Border Patrol Council, which represents approximately 18,000 Border Patrol agents and support personnel, added, “This entire operation is a sad joke!” They called it “another pandering PR stunt.”
“Serious law enforcement leaders don’t behave this way,” the union charged.

The CBP is beyond frustrated. Its agents have been relegated to administrative paperwork, with agents poised to “process individuals for vetting and placement into Title 42 expulsion or Title 8 removal proceedings, as applicable.” They do contend that any individuals posing a national security risk will be transported to ICE for detention. Many would assert that includes all illegal immigrants but CBP has its hands tied thanks to the Biden administration.
Title 42 was put in place by former President Trump and has been used to expel hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants quickly due to the pandemic. As it is removed, the border will crack wide open with up to 13,000 illegal immigrants swarming over it a day, according to the New York Post. The policy will expire on Thursday.
An additional 1,500 National Guardsman have been sent to the border to add to the 2,500 already there. But they are not truly for enforcement. They will be used for processing as illegal immigrants are allowed to rush over the border inundating cities and resources.
For context, in March, almost half of all migrant encounters ended in a Title 42 expulsion. As it ends, America is bracing for a tsunami of illegal immigrants that the left and President Biden have reportedly orchestrated.

Fox News Digital reports, “A border surge near El Paso has witnessed over 26,000 apprehensions and over 7,000 ‘gotaways’ within just 72 hours, according to official statistics.”
The Border Patrol Union issued its own stark and alarming statistics ahead of the end of Title 42: “Current Biden Admin ‘Secure’ Border Report 10-day average daily arrests 8,100. Of those, 79% rewarded with release into US. 10-day average daily known escapes 2,450 – crashed the border and couldn’t be caught. Unknown escapes? Exactly. Nobody knows. May 11th here in 3 days.”

The CBP revealed that over the weekend, 26,382 migrants crossed the border from May 5-7. It is one of the largest groups of migrants ever seen crossing the border in such a short period of time into Brownsville, Texas with an average of 8,794 migrants coming into the United States each day over the weekend.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced on Monday that he will be forming an Elite Border Response Force consisting of National Guard Soldiers. They will be deployed “with the tools needed to be effective” including night vision goggles and riot gear.
Reports are coming in that between 700,000 and 1 million migrants could cross in the days that follow the end of Title 42.
Abbott asserts that Texas will proceed to “very quickly build as many barriers as possible to turn back as many people as possible.”

“With the ending of Title 42 on Thursday, President Biden is laying down the welcome mat to people across the entire world,” Abbott proclaimed. “The Texas National Guard is loading Blackhawk helicopters and C-130s and deploying specially trained soldiers for the Texas Tactical Border Force, who will be deployed to hotspots all along the border to help intercept and repel large groups of migrants trying to enter Texas illegally.’

Abbott vowed to continue busing migrants from small Texas border towns to big cities like Chicago and New York. With the end of Title 42, he’ll need a bigger bus.
