Projected 15,000 Illegal Migrants Per Day to Crash Southern Border
Up to 15,000 illegal migrants per day may crash the southern border is being projected after Title 42 is eliminated.
Title 42 is a public health law under the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that allows immediate deportation of illegal migrants after they cross the border because of public health concerns and was in effect because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
CNN reported the public health law was used about 2.5 million times in less than three years to expel illegal migrants.
Fox News reporter Bill Melugin shot video of a huge group of illegal migrants entering the U.S.

Democrats, fearing political backlash, are considering adopting a new asylum policy to mitigate the border surge, according to CNN.
“If adopted, the asylum proposal would be reminiscent of a policy put in place during the Trump administration that dramatically limited the ability of migrants to claim asylum in the US if they resided or traveled through other countries prior to coming to the US. No decision has been made on the proposal.”
Melugin also reported the federal government wants an additional $4 billion to deal with the expected surge of illegal migrants.
