Bipartisan breakdown as crisis levels of migrants push US-Mexico border to 'breaking point'

After the border control commissioner revealed that "crisis levels" of detentions in El Paso, Texas had led to hundreds of migrants being held under a bridge, politicians are finally stepping in... to point fingers.

Border Control Commissioner Kevin McAleenan announced on Wednesday that 13,400 migrants are currently in custody, which is well above the "crisis level" of 6,000. He expects that 100,000 will be taken in by the end of March if steps are not taken.

One of the biggest issues for border agents is the dramatic increase in entire families attempting to enter the US, including a large number of children.

Unlike 20 years ago, many of the migrants attempting to cross the US border are from Central America, making them much more difficult to repatriate than Mexicans. The numbers have even forced the agency to risk some "direct releases of migrants."
