More & more cities will be overwhelmed with illegal immigrants if the current rate of border crossings continues.
Fox News is reporting:
“An Arizona mayor on Tuesday declared an emergency in the city he represents due to what he said was the strain caused by the incoming flow of migrants.
Yuma Mayor Douglas Nicholls shared the news on Facebook, explaining that he “proclaimed a local emergency” in the city “due to the migrant family releases overwhelming the local shelter system.”
He went on ask for the federal government to step in and provide assistance.
“I am calling upon the federal government to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Yuma, as our NGO’s are overcapacity and cannot sustain providing this aid,” the post said.
Nicholls, in a video, laid out his reasoning behind the declaration, saying that he ultimately feels that its what’s best for both Yuma and the incoming migrants.
“So it’s with a heavy heart that I declare that we’re at this point but it is something that I believe we need to do to make sure that our community is maintained and that the human rights of all the migrants are also maintained and that we have a path forward that respects both,” he said.
The city of Yuma, Ariz., also tweeted about the proclamation, citing Nicholls, claiming that released migrants were coming into the area faster than they were leaving.
Mayor: Migrants being released into the community faster than they are departing, and shelters and the staff to run them are at max capacity. A state of emergency is declared.

The move by the local official comes after President Trump declared a national emergency at the nation’s southern border earlier this year.”
I rolled into Mexico illegally, and came back into the USA… upon entering I got free healthcare, dental, welfare and cash in my pocket. It was that easy. @DonaldJTrumpJr @realDonaldTrump @RealJamesWoods @Education4Libs @IngrahamAngle @gehrig38 @SheriffClarke @NeilWMcCabe2 pic.twitter.com/8BHuqGbaZA

We Build the Wall Builds First Half-Mile Section of Border Wall in New Mexico – in Four Days
TENNESSEE STAR: The group We Build the Wall announced Monday it has completed construction of a large section of wall spanning between a half-mile and a mile along an open area of the Southern border previously believed to be unbuildable.
According to a story by The Washington Times, the wall section is along the southern border in New Mexico, and the organization says that is a first in the history of the border.
The wall is made of 18-foot steel bollard like what the Border Patrol uses, the Times said.
Just late last week, a federal judge ordered a halt to part of President Donald Trump’s emergency declaration and shifting of money within the Pentagon to make up for Congress’s refusal to fund the wall, the Timessaid.
The new section closes a gap that was between the end of the El Paso, Texas border wall and Mount Cristo Rey, across from the City of Juarez, The Gateway Pundit said.
“The gap is a half mile wide corridor and it’s literally a parking lot on the Mexican side and then you walk five steps and you are in the parking lot on the American side. There’s no barbed wire. There’s not ANY barrier. You just walk from one parking lot to the other.”
In the past, groups over a hundred in size on a typical evening would often come through this particular corridor. And while the border patrol is dealing with all the people down at the bottom of the gap in the flat area the cartels would be sending drugs up on the side of the mountain with no border control interference at all.
The new section of wall is on private property where the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers previously said it would not be possible to build – a belief Kolfage and his team took as a challenge along with builder Tommy Fisher, owner of Fisher Sand and Gravel (pictured with Kris Kobach, left).
Kolfage said his group will sell the wall to the federal government for $1. His cost was between $6 million to $8 million.
Kolfage also tweeted video of the wall’s construction: “The people’s wall is unveiled! The first segment is nearly complete!! DONATE NOW to help fund more walls! http://www.gofundme.com/thetrumpwall ”.
The Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has talked about the construction of a new wall at the border, Breitbart said last week, adding that 38 miles as of March 21 have been built.
In a statement provided to Breitbart News two months ago, a CBP spokesperson said the 38 miles of newly constructed wall system “provides new capability by replacing ineffective or dilapidated infrastructure, such as Normandy-style barriers designed only to stop vehicles, not people on foot.”
The majority of the border has remained open as the Department of Homeland Security replaces existing fencing rather than expanding barriers.
