Apparently There Is Such A Thing As Too Many In Yuma: Border city is on brink of collapse under ‘unprecedented’ migrant surge that has left hospitals and food banks overloaded: Number of crossings is ‘highest for thirty years’
The border city of Yuma, Arizona, is at breaking point with the unprecedented flow of migrants leaving the community at the brink of collapse and hospitals and food banks overloaded, local officials say.
Yuma County Supervisor Jonathan Lines has slammed the Biden administration for its handling of the border crisis and said his county will crumble as it can’t support the cascading flow of migrants.
Customs and Border officials say there were 251,487 migrant encounters at the border in December. That’s the highest figure for a single month ever, and brings the latest three-month total up to 717,600.

The number of people in Latin America and the Caribbean who wish to migrate has jumped this past decade to 242 million, many eyeing the US, heightening fears about the border crisis.
In 2011, only 18 percent of people in Latin America and the Caribbean wanted to permanently leave their homes. By 2021, that had risen to 37 percent of the region’s 655 million people, Gallup polling shows.
The desire to migrate rose faster in South America than anywhere else in the world. By the end of 2021, the share of Latinos wishing to migrate was on par with those in poverty-wracked sub-Saharan Africa.
In some South American nations — Honduras, Ecuador and the Dominican Republic — as much as half of the total population expressed a desire to move and live abroad permanently.
The survey comes amid record numbers of migrants trying to enter the US irregularly from Mexico, with Republicans criticizing President Joe Biden, a Democrat, over what they call his ‘loose’ or ‘open’ border.
