On Friday, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that the National Board of the Emergency Food and Shelter Program would distribute $332.5 million in humanitarian relief to areas of the United States that are providing temporary shelter to illegal immigrants awaiting immigration proceedings.
The money will be distributed to 35 various local governments and nonprofits.
More than 6.3 million illegal immigrants have crossed the border since Biden took office.
“Today, the Emergency Food and Shelter Program’s National Board announced the allocation of $332.5 million to assist communities receiving noncitizens released from custody as they await the outcome of their immigration proceedings,” DHS said in a news release.
“This allocation, through the Emergency Food and Shelter Program-Humanitarian (EFSP-H) program, will go to 35 local governments and service organizations. This is just one component of DHS’s comprehensive, multi-agency plan to manage increased encounters at the Southern Border and support communities when the Title 42 public health Order lifts.”
“This first round of funding was focused primarily on the needs of border communities due to the urgencies they are confronting. Several interior cities also received funding. The City of New York received the most of any interior city by a significant margin given its challenges,” it added.
DHS has announced that later this year, through the Shelter and Services Grant Program, an additional $360 million will be made available for humanitarian aid.

The allocation was made possible through the Consolidated Appropriations Act which was signed into law by President Joe Biden on Dec. 29, 2022.
On Friday, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced his state would be sending troops to the Texas-Mexico border in anticipation of the end of Title 42.
Abbott blamed the Biden administration for leaving “dangerous gaps” in securing the U.S. border. The Texas governor said it is his understanding that the Biden administration said it is possible that up to 13,000 migrants could be expected to cross the U.S. border each day after Title 42 ends. Abbott called the issues “a United States problem” and not “a Texas problem.”
Abbot said, “It’s the responsibility of New York or Chicago or the entire country to deal with the problem caused by Joe Biden and his open border policies.”
The Pentagon said Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin approved the deployment of 1,500 U.S. troops to the U.S.-Mexico border.
President Joe Biden got rid of expedited asylum screenings during his first month in office as part of attempts by his administration to remove border policies put in place by the Trump White House.
Previously implemented COVID-19 asylum restrictions are scheduled to expire on May 11, and the U.S. anticipates a sharp increase in illegal immigrant crossings coming up from Mexico.
