A new report from Cal Matters reveals that U.S. border authorities dropped off 42,000 illegal immigrants on San Diego County streets between September and November of 2023.
The migrants were left at bus and trolley stops, with three prominent sites for drop-off identified.
In response, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors allocated $3 million for migrant support services and is considering an additional $3 million for a welcome center. (Trending: Tucker Reveals The Moment He Became A Full-Blown Trump Supporter)

The expiration of Title 42, a policy that allowed Border Patrol agents to reject illegal immigrants who might bring Covid-19 into the U.S., has been linked to the surge in illegal border crossings.
“Illegal crossings topped a daily average of more than 8,000 last month,” the Associate Press reported.
The Wall Street Journal reported, “President Biden’s transition team knew illegal border crossings had started to rise after Mr. Biden’s election, in part fueled by the widespread notion that he would be friendlier to migrants than Mr. Trump.”
Homeowners near the border have reported witnessing a significant influx of migrants onto their properties.
The San Diego Border Patrol Sector has reported over 230,000 encounters last fiscal year.
CNN reported, “The San Diego Border Patrol Sector has reported more than 230,000 encounters during the fiscal year that ended in September – a level of activity the agency has not seen in over two decades.”
