U.S. authorities are releasing immigrant families at the Mexican border without notice or sometimes without paperwork to appear in immigration court – a new move that has confused some immigrants.
According to a report in the Associated Press on Thursday, the quick releases reduce the pressure on Border Patrol and its poorly crowded holding facilities.
The report said the number of people crossing the border into the United States, especially families and children, is seeing an incentive to travel alone. Raul Ortiz, deputy chief of the U.S. Border Guard, told reporters on Tuesday that more than a million immigrants are expected to cross the U.S. southern border this year, boosting the country’s capacity.

Officials in the Biden administration have urged immigrants not to come, saying the United States needs more time to determine more effective processing procedures, and officials are expelling most immigrants under epidemic provisions. However, the policy of allowing children traveling alone without a policy to enter the United States and reunite with a relative has also intensified the controversy.

AP reports that under pressure, border officials are leaving families of children aged six or under in the United States. The Border Patrol reportedly began unusual exercises in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas last week, with the number of immigrant families and unforgettable minors crossing the border increasing the most.
Last week the agency added instructions for adults to report to an ICE office within 60 days of booking documents. The Our Lady of Guadalapas, a Texas border town mission, did not find any documents, including dozens at the Catholic Church, where about 100 immigrants released by U.S. authorities were sleeping on mats in a shutter elementary school classroom every night.
Carlos Enrique Linga, 227, waited in the shelter for a week without documents, hoping to join a friend in Tennessee with his five-year-old daughter. His wife is still in Guatemala with their two-year-old twin daughter and a three-month-old baby.
Ling refused to leave the shelter until he was documented and asked for help from the Valley Catholic Charities in Rio Grande.
“We hope they can help with our paperwork so we can move forward, work and send [money] To my family, ”said Linga, whose home was destroyed in a storm in Guatemala in November. “The church tells us that sometimes mistakes are made. Because there are so many people, they forget. ‘
The Customs and Border Protection, which oversees Border Patrol, says it has stopped issuing court notices in some cases because it often takes time to create a document.
Sister Norma Pimentel, executive director of the Valley Catholic Charity in Rio Grande, knows that 10 to 15 families have been released without any documents since last week, before the number of new arrivals spread.
“This is a problem, this is a situation that we should follow to make sure we solve it,” he said.
Jos স Sansario waited for asylum on a mission for a week after arriving from Guatemala with his wife, Kimberly, and their three-year-old daughter, Janice.
They left their homeland in early March because a car threatened to kill him if he did not pay for his car repair business. He said he had heard that the Beadon administration was friendly to immigrants.
“We didn’t know the truth, but we had faith – that God would help us and that faith would let us in,” he said.
