Residents of Texas, Arizona, and other states along the US/Mexico border are bracing for a potentially massive influx of illegal immigrants starting May 11th. That’s when Title 42, put in place during COVID to make it easier for authorities to expel illegal immigrants, is set to expire. Even before the expected human wave of asylum seekers puts an additional strain on our already hoarse 1,500-mile+ southern border, deadly consequences are already taking place in Texas.
A 42-year-old Mexican illegal immigrant named, Francisco Oropesa, gunned down 5 people, including women and a 9-year-old child earlier this week. The suspect remained at large prior to being captured Tuesday night after a massive statewide manhunt. FOX News reports Oropesa had been apprehended and deported back to Mexico an astounding 5 times prior to his deadly rampage.
“My fear is that my fellow Americans in other states can’t wrap their heads around the severity of the border crisis. It is so serious here that the city of El Paso has declared a state of emergency because so many asylum seekers are under the belief that starting May 11th, they will have free and easy access to the country. Thousands are camped out just across the river in Juarez and are about to stream into the country illegally. Regardless of your political views, neither Texas nor anywhere else in America has the infrastructure in place to handle the enormous influx of people,” said Battle.
