Hundreds of illegal immigrants released into US amid overcrowding at detention facilities

The U.S. has started releasing hundreds of illegal immigrant detainees into the country as immigration authorities struggle to find available places to house the thousands of illegal migrants coming through the U.S.-Mexico border.

Most of the released migrants are expected to be those who crossed the border together with their families. Such migrants are given paper notices with a court date and told to stay with their other family members in the U.S.

At least 250 illegal immigrants were released between Tuesday and Wednesday, the Los Angeles Times reported. Most of the releases happening near Mexico’s border with Texas and more such releases are expected, the officials said.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen warned earlier this month the migration crisis on the southern border is “spiraling out of control” and predicted that crisis will “get even worse” in the coming months.
