    The US Department of Defense plans to send 1,500 more troops to the border with Mexico as they expect a surge of migrants when Covid-era restrictions are lifted next week. Title 42, a policy introduced under President Trump that allowed the government to turn away migrants at the border using Covid-19 pandemic measures, will end on May 11. This is expected to result in a surge of migrants. In response, El Paso, Texas has already declared a state of emergency since crowds of people are sleeping on the streets and some have been moved to government-run centers.

    According to CNN, while encounters between US border agents and undocumented immigrants fell this year, incidents have recently increased. There are around 7,000 such incidents daily, and they are expected to rise dramatically next week.

    Around 1,500 troops will be sent to the border, adding to the 2,500 already there to support Border Patrol authorities. The additional troops are meant to act in strictly administrative roles and not to aid in law enforcement. Though some of them may be armed, they will have no direct role in interacting with migrants at the border. The additional personnel will also help with data entry and warehouse support.

The US is working with Colombia and Guatemala to set up regional processing centers to allow migrants to apply before they come to the US. Meanwhile, there are already more than 36,000 migrants camped along the border in northern Mexico waiting for the end of Title 42.
