Why Border Patrol is doing more to rescue and identify missing migrants
The agency's approach to missing migrants has evolved amid an increase in migration and deaths. Brooks County — about 75 miles north of the Rio Grande Valley — has become the Border Patrol's laboratory, a place to test approaches they're already extending across the border. A three-person missing-migrant team trained in forensics is working with an intelligence officer to help identify migrant remains. The agency also added equipment and technology to help locate stranded migrants faster. It installed more than 1,400 rescue signs across the region labeled with GPS coordinates.
325 adults sheltered

This time, these are "310 isolated adults from sub-Saharan Africa, more than 15 couple or family" that have been counted and supported, always depending on the mayor. A total much greater than the number of people who actually occupied the site but, since the announcement of the evacuation Wednesday, other homeless people came to "enjoy the opportunity to be sheltered" according to François Dagnaud.
"People who do not return in any box"
"a big part" of these migrants must now pass through an orientation platform located in this same northeastern district of Paris "before being reallocated" in Accommodation centers located in Paris, Ile-de-France or in the province, indicates the Mayor of the nineteenth arrondissement, regularly facing the installation of migrant camps.
He knows the limits of these evacuations, with "people who do not enter any box and who, after the shelter operations, find themselves in fact without accommodation: the disbouved of the right of asylum , people who have no request, without rights or title, who have exhausted a little all the remedies ... "
Part of the people supported Thursday to " already had to benefit from previous shelters, here Or elsewhere "," he says so.
Summer camps hit with COVID outbreaks -- are schools next? .
The U.S. has seen a string of COVID-19 outbreaks tied to summer camps in recent weeks in places such as Texas, Illinois, Florida, Missouri and Kansas, in what some fear could be a preview of the upcoming school year. In some cases the outbreaks have spread from the camp to the broader community. The clusters have come as the number of confirmed cases of the coronavirus in the U.S. has reversed course, surging more than 60% over the past two weeks from an average of about 12,000 a day to about 19,500, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. The rise in many places has been blamed on too many unvaccinated people and the highly contagious delta variant.
