The mayor of an Arizona town is declaring a state of emergency in response to the Biden administration’s migrant crisis, revealing that Customs and Border Patrol has begun dumping busloads of migrants into the community.
“Border Patrol let us know that they were going to be dropping migrants that had been detained for 72 hours in our town, which we really didn’t understand because we have nothing here,” Gila Bend Mayor Chris Riggs told FOX Business. “We have no charity organizations that can help, no non-governmental organizations that a lot of the larger cities and towns do have to assist these people.”
Gila Bend doesn’t have the capabilities to provide coronavirus tests to the busloads of illegal aliens the Biden administration has sent to the town of 2,000. The town is 100 miles north of the border, raising questions as to why the federal government has decided to use it as a migrant resettlement zone- Gila Bend’s proximity to highways such as I-8 seeming to be the only compelling reasons.
Mayor Riggs also revealed that violent crime has increased in the Maricopa County town recently, which is south of the Phoenix metro area. The federal government hasn’t provided any financial assistance in dealing with the migrants.
“People are very concerned because what we’re hearing is the Brazilian form of COVID is running in some of these migrants. We can’t afford to have that here,” revealed Riggs in an interview with Fox 10 Phoenix.
Biden’s DHS continues to release migrants from DHS custody within 72 hours, apparently viewing the small town of 2,000 as a more appropriate place for the waves of illegal aliens than immigration detention facilities.
