Wednesday on Newsmax TV’s “America’s Forum,” Mayor Phillip Burch Mayor of Artesia, NM, a isolated town that houses a federal immigration detention center, said there has been a sudden large increase in the number of illegal immigrants being released from the center into the United States.
Burch said, “We have seen some changes in how the cases of these immigrants are being handled. There can be gowing concern about how this is being handled by the government.”
“Very early on we saw numbers, a 138 immigrants deported and 12 released into the United states and given asylum.’ he added, “That is a rate of 10-to-1 being deported, this past week, there were 68 releases verses 13 deportations so all of a sudden that’s a four-to-one ratio of people being released out into the United States.”
