On Thursday, it was reported that the Glorieta Camps were no longer preparing to house illegal migrant children, according to a release from the organization. Earlier in the week, it was reported that they were preparing to take in thousands of illegal migrant youth from Joe Biden’s border crisis.
“We are very encouraged by all of our partners that we could be an excellent location to support these children if needed in the near future,” the news release said. “At this point all donations and supplies will be held until we receive confirmation if or when we may become a host site in the future.
“It has been great to work with the Office of the Governor, the Health and Human Services Department, [the Federal Emergency Management Agency], Homeland Security, senators, representatives, and the other agencies that are ready to serve these kids in need, and we’re grateful to the state government agencies in New Mexico that would have assisted in an oversight role,” the statement continued.
According to the Santa Fe New Mexican, “A spokeswoman for Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham said the state would assist in oversight of such an effort” to house migrant children in New Mexico. “Currently, she said, state officials ‘don’t know whether or where other sites might be.’”
According to the Washington Post, more than 8,500 unaccompanied illegal alien children and teens were being housed in Department of Health and Human Services shelters, and a record-setting 3,500 children were backlogged at a Border Patrol station, as of March 10. That number has likely skyrocketed since.
Over the past few weeks, Joe Biden has been blasted for his failure to control the ravaging of New Mexico’s southern border after he encouraged these criminal alien children to cross into the United States with his weak immigration messaging.
Many illegal immigrants flooding into the U.S. can be seen wearing Joe Biden shirts and holding Joe Biden flags with the messaging “Please Let Us In” written on them.
There are thousands of illegal migrant children currently in federal custody who are in cramped makeshift holding cells while other children are being housed in metal prison-like boxes outside.
More and more illegal migrant children are being smuggled into the U.S. each day due to Biden’s failed border policies. One video shows two toddlers smuggled from Equador being dropped over a 14-foot-high border barrier by a smuggler.
Early in her term, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham left the border defenseless when she removed the New Mexico National Guard troops stationed near the border who were assisting the Department of Homeland Security.
Previously, Gov. Lujan Grisham claimed President Trump “failed” in his response to the border crisis despite him bolstering the border with resources, leading to fewer people crossing the border illegally. Trump had lower deportation numbers than the Obama administration, which Biden was a part of.
