BLP: A small town in New Mexico where thousands of asylum-seeking “migrants” have been dropped is beginning to question whether it can handle the influx of foreigners.
Deming, New Mexico has taken in 2,600 “migrants” in a period of two weeks, according to Wall Street Journal, and is now operating a shelter for “migrants.” The town has only 14,000 residents. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has been releasing “migrants” into towns across the American southwest when their sectors are filled to capacity.
In Deming, the town has been welcoming. But some are asking questions.
“You have volunteers that are starting to get burned out,” resident Sophia Cruz reportedly said. “There’s no turning them away. So what then?”
Cruz is a former border patrol agent herself.
Border Patrol has attempted to drop “migrants” at shelters and charitable organizations, but in many instances, even those places are overrun. more
