Migrants seize San Diego Airport, establish camp: ‘Overwhelming numbers

Migrants Take Over ‍San Diego Airport, Set Up Camp: ⁢’There’s So​ Many People’

In the 2004 movie “The Terminal,” Tom Hanks ‍played a traveler​ named Viktor Navorski who lived at JFK Airport in New York for nine months because his visa was not valid‌ to ⁤enter the United States and a coup in his home ⁤country‌ blocked him from returning home.

Hanks’ role was based on the real-life story of Mehran Karimi Nasseri. Nasseri was deported⁢ from ​his home country of Iran but ⁤claimed⁣ he had lost the necessary papers to get refugee status in the U.K.‍ while he was​ in Paris, according to The New York Times. ⁢He spent 18 years⁣ at Terminal 1 at Charles De Gaulle Airport in Paris before he died last year.

If you were trying ⁣to get in ​or ⁤out of San Diego airport over the Thanksgiving break, you might have encountered⁣ a ‌few migrants‌ who are living in the airport as well — at least 100 of them, The San⁣ Diego Union-Tribune reported Thursday.

In⁢ a Monday social media post, San Diego County Supervisor Jim Desmond ⁣indicated the ⁣number had climbed ‍past 300.

Among the concerns raised by this influx of migrants is the lack of proper verification and ⁤identification procedures.

When migrants arrive at the‍ border seeking asylum, there is no reliable process to confirm their identities, check their criminal backgrounds or ensure they do not ⁢pose ⁢threats to public safety. Most lack official⁣ IDs or ⁢documentation that could be cross-referenced.

But unlike Nasseri or his fictional counterpart, Navorski, a little thing like the lack of⁣ proper ⁢paperwork won’t stop ⁣these people from getting​ into the country. ⁣They are just waiting for flights⁤ to take them to wherever they want to go, ‌courtesy of the Biden administration.

The San Diego welcome center,​ run by the nonprofit SBCS,⁣ has come under scrutiny for its role in the airport⁤ crisis. SBCS buses multiple groups of migrants to the airport daily, working closely with Border Patrol drop-offs, the Union-Tribune reported.

Some volunteers allege migrants are transported to the ‌terminal directly after processing without confirmed travel plans.

“It’s almost becoming a second [migrant welcome] center because⁢ there’s so many people there,” Krystle Johnson, a volunteer with a group helping migrants ⁤at‌ the airport,‌ told the Union-Tribune.

Airport officials acknowledged there has been a ⁤“significant increase in⁤ the‍ number of migrants” and said in a statement that they “have and will continue to coordinate with migrant-serving volunteer groups and nonprofit organizations as⁣ they help​ their clients navigate the airport.”

Immigrant Defenders Law Center attorneys said around 20 arrivals per day lack any​ flight‍ booking. Nearly half scramble to secure tickets before⁤ nightfall, but some families reported being stranded for up to ​four days awaiting purchases ⁤from relatives, the Union-Tribune reported.

Additional travelers had prearranged flights ⁢but were⁣ prematurely delivered to the airport long before departure.

SBCS spokeswoman ⁤Mindy ‍Wright denied the claim that migrants are taken to the ‌airport without prior⁤ arrangements.

According to the Union-Tribune, since mid-September alone, more than ‍40,000 migrants have ‌been released into San Diego.

They might not have the proper paperwork, but they ‌won’t stay in the airport too ‍long.

Pretty‍ soon, they’ll be in other American states ‌and cities among the other millions of unverifiable⁤ migrants for whom the Biden administration ​has opened the ⁣floodgates.

How are the lack of proper verification and ‍identification procedures‌ impacting the security measures in place?

Migrants Take Over San Diego Airport, Set Up ‍Camp: ‘There’s So Many People’

In‌ recent‍ days, the San​ Diego International Airport has​ faced an unexpected ​challenge – an influx‍ of ⁢migrants⁤ who have taken up residence within ⁣the airport. ​According to reports, at​ least‌ 100⁣ migrants have been sleeping at the airport each night before their flights, with the⁣ number reportedly climbing to​ over 300. This raises‍ concerns ​about the lack of proper verification‌ and identification procedures⁤ for these ⁤individuals.

When migrants arrive at the border seeking asylum, there is ‍currently ⁣no‌ reliable process to confirm their identities,⁣ check their criminal backgrounds, or ‍ensure they⁢ do not pose threats‍ to⁤ public safety.⁣ Many lack ⁢official ‍IDs or documentation that could be⁤ cross-referenced. As⁢ a result, there is a significant gap in the security measures in place. Unlike ⁤previous cases, where individuals like Mehran Karimi Nasseri spent ‌years living ‍at airports‌ due to immigration issues, ‍these migrants ⁤are simply waiting for flights to ​take them to their ‍desired destinations, courtesy of the Biden ⁣administration.

The ​San Diego welcome center, run by ‍the nonprofit organization SBCS,⁢ has been ⁣under scrutiny for its ⁢role in the airport crisis.⁢ It has been reported⁣ that SBCS buses multiple⁢ groups of migrants to the airport daily, working closely with⁤ the U.S. Border ⁢Patrol. This ​coordination ⁣has contributed to the large number of migrants camping⁣ at ⁣the airport, further highlighting the need‌ for improved screening and processing procedures.

This⁣ situation at ‌the San Diego airport raises questions about‌ the effectiveness of current ⁣immigration policies and procedures. With a significant number of​ migrants ‍entering‍ the country without proper verification, there are concerns about potential security risks and the strain placed on ‍local resources. As the airport⁣ continues to‍ grapple with this issue,⁣ it is crucial for‌ the ⁤relevant⁣ authorities to address the situation promptly and implement measures to ensure the⁢ safety and⁤ security of all⁢ individuals‌ involved.

In a ‍broader context, ⁢this situation serves as a reminder of the ongoing challenges faced by countries ⁢in managing ‌immigration and asylum processes. While it ⁣is essential to⁢ address humanitarian concerns and provide support​ for those in need, it is equally important to maintain robust security measures to protect public safety. Striking the right balance between compassion and security remains a complex and‌ ongoing task for policymakers and immigration authorities ‌worldwide.
