El Paso Preparing to Bus More Illegals to New York City Ahead of End of Title 42 

As the Biden Administration prepares to formally end the Trump-era Title 42 immigration policy, the border city of El Paso, Texas is preparing to remove its flood of illegal aliens by busing them to Democrat-run cities such as New York City.

As the New York Post reports, the mayor and deputy city manager of El Paso confirmed their intentions on Wednesday, with buses standing by and waiting for more illegals to arrive once Title 42 officially ends.

“We do have the transportation set up, but we have not activated transportation,” said El Paso Deputy City Manager Mario D’Agostino. “There might be a time when we have to operationalize that – everything’s ready, we just don’t have the demand at the time.”

Over the last year, Republican governors and mayors from several states have participated in the stunt of busing illegals to Democrat-controlled cities, including New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles, in an attempt to turn the Democrats’ open-border policies right back on them. These efforts have led to New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D-N.Y.) announcing that the city will soon be relocating illegals to other parts of the state, in an effort to ease the strain on city resources and infrastructure.

El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser (D-Texas) clarified that he believed in sending illegals to New York not necessarily to punish the Democratic city, but because most illegals themselves want to go there.

“It’s not because we want them to go there. It’s not because someone has pushed them there,” said Leeser. “They want to live that American dream and be able to go through the legal process and work there.”

Title 42 is a public health policy that gives the executive branch greater authority on immigration in order to protect public health and safety. The Trump Administration used this policy during the Chinese Coronavirus pandemic to greatly reduce both legal and illegal immigration.

El Paso officials said that there are currently between 6,000 and 7,000 illegals in Border Patrol custody in El Paso, with over 10,300 illegals apprehended on Tuesday, after 10,000 were apprehended on Monday. The end of Title 42 is expected to unleash a flood of illegals who will cross the border knowing that it will now be easier for them to enter the country, worsening an already boiling-over humanitarian and national security crisis.
