Andrea Rudnik, the co-founder of Team Brownsville, an NGO located in Brownsville, Texas, talked to the Daily Caller regarding their concerns about being overwhelmed by migrant encounters following the removal of Title 42.

Title 42, the policy, implemented during former President Donald Trump’s administration, allows the U.S. to swiftly expel migrants to Mexico or their home country to help control the spread of COVID-19. The concerns from Team Brownsville stem from their budget to provide supplies to migrants since they rely on private donations.

“The numbers have increased dramatically from pre-Christmas. [In the] month of December, we were receiving maybe between 150 and 200 a day, and now we’re receiving more than 400 a day, and the numbers are pushing up,” said Rudnik, when asked about how the number of migrants they’ve encountered compared to last year.

“We’ve been told to expect the numbers to go up to 1,000 a day,” Rudnik told the Daily Caller regarding the removal of Title 42.

A report from Fox News shows how migrant encounters surged past the 220,000 mark, which makes it the highest amount of encounters in a month so far. (RELATED: ‘It’s Going To Open Up The Flood Gates On The Border’: Texas Deputy On The Ending Of Title 42)
