People have been coming in like a running faucet. Border patrolman can't be hired like a dishwasher. It takes time and training. Each and every person must be processed and as fast as they can get someone through, need to find somewhere better equipped to send them (and they are all full as well) other new people have taken their place so conditions never get much better. What is different this year is the caravans. Prior, they might have gotten stragglers or small groups at a time. With the caravans, they bring in hundreds a day pretty much in a small window of time. I think I mentioned that I have several people living on the border who spend their time capturing on cell phones what's going on. I've watched busloads of people being brought from the confinement areas to various shelters "live" on many occasions. Most I've seen are women and children. Even the secondary shelters are nothing to write home about..buildings that have been converted to use as temporary quarters still institutional but better than the initial holding places.
