Biden administration to open new tent facility in Texas amid surge in migrants at border - Fox News
Feb 27, 2021 1 min, 29 secs

The Biden administration is preparing to open a new tent facility in Texas to hold migrants crossing the border, as officials scramble to deal with the combination of a surge in numbers and the challenges of COVID-19.

The facilities, run by Customs and Border Protection (CBP), are different from a center in Carrizo Springs, which was reactivated to deal solely with unaccompanied children (UACs) and is run by Health and Human Services (HHS).

There has been an increase in the number of migrants moving to the border in recent weeks, coming amid a number of sweeping changes to Trump-era immigration and border security policies by the Biden administration.

The administration has ended the construction of the wall at the southern border and has started to let in migrants kept in Mexico under the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP).

While that has been blocked by a district judge in response to a Texas lawsuit, the administration has in the meantime issued guidance to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) that narrows priorities for arrests and deportations.

The Biden administration is also under pressure from left-wing activists to end Title 42 restrictions that allow for migrants to be quickly returned to their country of last origin due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, the administration has not yet indicated that it will do so, and officials in multiple ages have warned migrants that they should not flock to the border

Republicans have been sounding the alarm for weeks about a coming crisis at the border, accusing Biden of restoring the "pull factors" that encourage migrants to come north and weakening the systems set up by the Trump administration to deal with the 2019 border crisis

Multiple House Republicans accused the administration this week of creating a humanitarian crisis at the border by adopting a radical agenda
