Biden’s government is also facing new increases in illegal border crossings, which have been over 200 percent since last year, and has reported that the United States Customs and Border Protection has opened yet another tent city to detain illegal immigrants.
The Border Patrol announced on Wednesday that there were about 78,000 migrants on the border in January, up from 36,679 in January 2020.
The organisation says Mexican single adult citizens had more than 37,000 CBP meetings, up 119 percent from last year.
As a consequence of the boom, a new “soft side facility,” which originally existed at the centralised processing centre in McAllen, Texas was set up at the agency in Donna this week.
CBP said in a Tuesday statement the Donna facility is “wetter-resistant, climate controlled and provides ample areas for food, sleep and personal hygiene.”
The agency also called the Donna site “a substantial upgrade to previous software installations,” which span a total of 160,000 square feet.
In the southern border towns and cities, then candidate Joe Biden and Democrats have criticised the Trump administration for the use of temporary shelters known as “tent towns.”
These housing facilities usually do not comply with the same requirements of legislation as long-term shelters because they are temporary.
It is not the first of its young government that the tent city established under President Biden is.
The Health and Human Services department announced last week that it is going to open an overflow centre for up to 700 migrant children within the next two weeks.
The Department confirmed plans to re-establish its “temporary refugee-care centre” in Carrizo Springs, Texas in a statement issued by the Office of the Refugee Resettlement.
