Top ranking U.S. officials are in Mexico as thousands of migrants head to the southern border. They’re meeting with the Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador to see what can be done to drive down illegal border crossings.

The Biden administration says it is committed to expanding legal pathways for migrants, but it needs more funding from Congress to do so.

The Dec. 27 meeting comes as migrant encounters at the U.S. border reach unprecedented levels with December on track to break the monthly record.

Border cities discuss surge of migrants

The Arizona National Guard tells us for the past week, they’ve been in the vicinity of the Lukeville Port of Entry, working with DPS and are currently still there.

“The border’s got no management right now. Let’s just be real, let’s come out. I know D.C. and the administration is saying that the border is effectively secure and managed. That is an inappropriate statement,” said Sheriff Mark Dannels.

“Everything I’ve seen is not good and what I don’t see is engagement, recognition from this administration or Congress. All they keep saying is hey, we need to do this, we need more money for immigration. Well, the border is becoming a money pit. It’s truly a money pit why border security and national security is being set aside.”

The sheriff says over the last two years, 2,800 people have been booked into the Cochise County Jail for border-related crimes and that number continues to be steady or increase.

Over in Nogales, “We’re getting the migrants, you know, Border Patrol is releasing anywhere from 700 to 900 a day,” said Mayor Jorge Maldonado, who adds most of the migrants are being bussed in from Lukeville and other areas.

We reached out to Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs. Her office tells us that National Guard personnel are in border communities, assisting with activities, including drug interdiction and human trafficking enforcement.
