The Biden administration is spending $3 million dollars a day to house migrants at a detention center in Dilley, Texas, where the number of people from Russia and the Middle East crossing the border from Mexico is growing at an alarming rate, DailyMail.com has learned.

Even more alarming, officials are being forced to ‘catch and release’ undocumented immigrants without properly vetting them, according to an official at the facility.

The South Texas Family Residential Center in Dilley is currently housing about 1,500 migrants at a cost of approximately $2,000 per person per day.

The facility, the largest immigration detention in the US, can hold a maximum of 2,400 detainees and was originally intended to house mainly women and children seeking asylum.

Russian and Middle Eastern migrants are becoming more and more frequent, joining the caravan from Mexico to cross into the United States along with Mexicans and Americans.

But due to the surgeof migrants at the border, officials say it has now become an ‘intake and release center for illegal immigrant families’ including men, who are being welcomed into the country after 72 hours to await their court dates.

‘It’s nothing more than catch and release,’ a facility official, who wished to remain anonymous, told DailyMail.com.

Officials at the facility say they have now been forced to take in men due to the recent surge in migration and are seeing more than 150 families arrive daily

‘Before President Biden took over we had about 20 families a day arrive at our facility, now we are seeing more than 150 a day, we are overwhelmed. Before we never accepted men at our facility, but now we are.’

The 55-acre detention center is located off I-35 in a small Texas town with a population of 4,000. It is owned by Tennessee-based company, Core Civic, which manages private prisons and detention centers across 19 states, with a reported revenue of $1.98billion in 2019.

The inside source says the facility is also seeing an influx of immigrants from all parts of the world, not just Central and South American countries.

‘Previously we’d get immigrants from Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, but in the last few months we’ve had immigrants from Russia, Iraq, Syria, Vietnam, Romania, Haiti,’ the source said.

The South Texas Family Residential Center was built in 2014 and boasted a large gym and even a courtroom used for immigration matters, but those spaces are now being used as intake and sleeping areas.

According to the official, migrant families would typically stay at the center for months at a time while they waited for their asylum cases to go through the court system.

But now, due to the influx of people, the maximum time migrants are kept in the center is three days before being released into the United States with an immigration court date in hand.

The process has sparked security concerns at the center, where officials are no longer able to properly screen migrants or verify their identities in their rush to process everyone.

‘Because the turnaround time is so short, the immigrants aren’t being vetted before they are released,’ the source said.

‘Our government doesn’t really know who they are releasing into our society. When these immigrant families come in from Russia, Syria and Iraq, some of them could be terrorists.

‘When these men come into our facility with women and children, we have no proof any of them are actually related. Often they don’t have documentation so we have to take their word on their name, age, nationality, etc. They could be anyone, child predators, traffickers, terrorists.’

‘The entire immigration system is overwhelmed right now. ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] is just trying to move people through the system as fast as possible,’ the source added.

‘We have more people than we can handle. It’s a crisis situation, everyone is overworked.’

The COVID-19 pandemic has also complicated matters now that officials have to administer tests to every arrival.

‘When immigrants arrive at the facility they are given a COVD-19 test before they even step off the bus,’ the source said.

‘If they test positive they are taken to the medical unit. About 10 per cent of them test positive, and aren’t released until they have a negative test.’

All girls over the age of 10 are also required to take a pregnancy test. Pregnant girls and women are then sent to the medical unit and hospital for more treatment.

According to the official, the center has seen girls as young as 12 produce a positive pregnancy test.

The immigrants are then are photographed and fingerprinted. ICE officials conduct a background check on each one of them, they can find out if someone has been arrested before in the United States, but it takes days to do a thorough background check.

‘Three days isn’t enough time to run a background on these immigrants before releasing them into the United States.

‘The Border Patrol brings in the immigrants immediately after they are detained. They come in dirty, hungry and often smell. We have them take a shower and provide clean clothing for them. There are medical and dental facilities on premises for the immigrants.

‘Most of the immigrants who arrive don’t have any paperwork when they arrive. They say they’ve either lost it or it was stolen from them. So we have to take their word for it when they give us their name, age and nationality. But we have no way of checking them out, unless something comes back from their fingerprint check.
