Within the first 6 hours of Monday morning, over 1,500 migrants crossed the border into Eagle Pass, Texas. This large amount of migrants forced the shutdown of the local migrant processing center. The shelter is currently holding 3,000 migrants, but its capacity is designed for only 1,000. With such a rapid increase in migrants, authorities are preparing to house them outdoors. “We lack the capacity to deal with it. This system is broken,” stated a local source. Many of the migrants are being released with no money causing distress to locals.
