Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released 522 migrants in New Mexico and Texas on Wednesday evening – bringing the total number of asylum seekers dropped off by the agency this week to more than 1,000.

ICE dropped off 186 people on Christmas Day and 400 in the two days preceding the holiday, according to CBS News.

The article goes on to state the following:

The migrants were dropped off at locations in El Paso, Texas, and Las Cruces, New Mexico.

El Paso straddles the U.S.-Mexico border, while Las Cruces is just 45 miles north of El Paso.

Earlier this week, ICE, without warning, dropped off the migrants at a Greyhound bus station in El Paso, Texas – leaving them with no food, money, or shelter.

But on Wednesday local charitable groups were more prepared to absorb the released migrants and immediately take them off the streets for placement into temporary shelters, Ruben Garcia told the El Paso Times.

Fox News also reported on the releases, and provided the following information:

After a similar release Sunday, ICE blamed “decades of inaction by Congress” for limiting its ability to remove families who are in the U.S. illegally.

“To mitigate the risk of holding family units past the timeframe allotted to the government, ICE has curtailed reviews of post-release plans from families apprehended along the southwest border,” the statement read. “ICE continues to work with local and state officials and NGO partners in the area so they are prepared to provide assistance with transportation or other services.”

Garcia said he has been working with ICE in recent months to coordinate drop-offs and shelter placement for incoming migrants. He said he has been receiving about 2,000 migrants a week.

Garcia runs the Annunciation House, a homeless and refugee shelter in El Paso.

Earlier this month, Customs and Border Protection had tweeted that, due to the influx of Central American family units pouring in, “the processing system at CBP and our partner agencies has hit capacity.”

    So catch and release is still ongoing even tho we sent money to Latin America and Mexico with the promise that these people would remain in Mexico awaiting their documentation. We are being lied to by this administration.

      No , the liberal judge ruled against Trumps order, so now they can’t keep them in Mexico, it is tied up in court. So in the meantime it is still catch and release, blame it on the democrats!!!!

    There is something seriously wrong here, we have no say in this invasion and yet we are expected to pay and pay for these illegals.
    They have brought danger, crime and diseases to our doorstep.
    More will be dropped off, we are losing the country fast.

    They have no choice, the liberal judge shot down Trumps EO order to keep them in Mexico. The congress is all to blame for this, they pass the laws! Border Patrol is following the law. Catch and release is still a law thanks to that liberal judge
