Migrants thank Biden for letting them in as US Border Patrol’s San Diego processing centers reach eye-popping 245% capacity

SAN DIEGO, California — The US Border Patrol has more than twice as many migrants as they can hold in the San Diego area of the southern border — and immigrants there were thanking President Biden for letting them in.

The agency’s processing centers in the region are 245% capacity, as 1,812 migrants were being detained as of Friday in facilities normally meant to hold 750, according to agency data exclusively obtained by The Post.

With the influx — and the fact that migrants can only be held 72 hours — there’s been more than 125,000 migrants released onto the streets of San Diego since September.
