Yuma Arizona 'On The Brink Of Collapse' Due To 'Unprecedented' Migrant Surge

The border city of Yuma, Arizona is on the 'brink of collapse' as a flood of migrants have overloaded hospitals and food banks.

According to officials, some 5 million migrants have crossed into the US since President Biden took office in January 2021.

As a result, Yuma County's Border Patrol has seen a rise in migrant crossings of 171%. According to County Supervisor Jonathan Lines, the county will 'crumble' if it can't support the flow of migrants. Lines says that the situation will only get worse, according to the Fox News.

In a statement to Fox News, Lines said that "Policies need to be changed when you see an unprecedented amount of people coming across the border that even supersedes what we saw under any of the other presidents for the past 30 years," adding that the surge in crossings is "ridiculous."

"They're coming because they said that Biden told them to come, that we have an open border."

According to fifth-generation Yuma resident and farmer, Hank Auza, "The problem that we're foreseeing right now is there's a couple of big waves coming," adding "Yuma can't support that. It will overwhelm the system here."

El Paso, Texas, another border town, declared a state of emergency as thousands of migrants camped in the streets during below-freezing temperatures in December. Many migrant shelters were over capacity, leading the city to use the local airport for temporary refuge. 

Lines, Auza and another Yuma farmer, Alex Muller, had shared concerns, starting with the fear around food security, since agricultural production makes up a large part of the town's economy. 

"Our fields are monitored and audited and tested for different pathogens," Muller, said. "You can't have people walking through the field." 

Auza said Yuma's fields, which produce 93% of the nation's leafy greens in the winter months, have faced a fair amount of migrant traffic, risking damage to their crops due to foodborne illness concerns. He also said many residents can't get into the city's only hospital.  -Fox News

"People have had a hard time getting into the hospital because the hospital has been so full of" migrants, said Auza.
