California border commuters kept waiting as migrants flood crossings: report

The number of migrants coming to the U.S. border has surged to record numbers since President Biden took office

U.S. workers who commute to Southern California from places in Mexico like Tijuana have reported excessively long wait times at the U.S.-Mexico border, according to a report.

The delays are reportedly due, at least in part, to the increasing numbers of non-citizens attempting to pass through the ports of entry. 

One commuter recently waited as long as seven hours to cross the border, he told Border Report. 

"Day after day, it’s grueling, it’s horrible, slow, painful, time-wasting. What can I say?" Jose Ortiz, another commuter, told the outlet.

The number of migrants trying to cross into California at border crossings rose 51% last month, up to 1,632 from 1,081 in March. 

"It’s very important [Tijuana] people get to San Diego for the economy, for family, for everything," commuter Alvaro Rudas said. "The line is crazy bad."
