Link: Texas family detention centers expected to transform into rapid-processing hubs

The Biden administration is preparing to convert its immigrant family detention centers in South Texas into Ellis Island-style rapid-processing hubs that will screen migrant parents and children with a goal of releasing them into the United States within 72 hours, according to Department of Homeland Security draft plans obtained by The Washington Post.

The plans show the Biden administration is racing to absorb a growing number of migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border amid shortages of bed space and personnel. Republicans and some Democrats fear that relaxing detention policies will exacerbate a surge that is already straining the Biden administration.

This is going to be a continuing problem. The Trump administration failed to deal with this in any Christian way. That led to a pent-up demand. The proper way to deal with this is to stabilize the areas that these migrants are from.
