The vacation is happening as the White House is working on lifting Title 42, which would result in a massive immigration crush at the border.
NEW: Several mass illegal crossings in Eagle Pass, TX overnight, including this group of several hundred that crossed before sunrise. Title 42 remains in effect, but most of the people crossing in this sector are from countries T42 isn’t enforced on, & majority are released. pic.twitter.com/tBPfhSzSRv
