JTN: The border town of Yuma, Ariz., is on the brink of collapse as it battles a continuous influx of migrants that strains its resources and infrastructure, local officials have warned.
“The average for Yuma on a weekly basis is 6,000 people coming across. Of those 6,000, we have 1,000 to 2,000 ‘gotaways’ — people we have not been able to catch,” according to Yuma County Supervisor Jonathan Lines, Fox News reported. Yuma has a permanent population of roughly 100,000.
“Policies need to be changed when you see an unprecedented amount of people coming across the border that even supersedes what we saw under any of the other presidents for the past 30 years,” Lines said. “And they’re coming because they said that Biden told them to come, that we have an open border.” more
