The city of Yuma, Arizona declared an official “State of Emergency” this week; saying local resources are completely “overwhelmed” by the influx of illegal immigrants arriving daily with the ‘migrant caravan.’

“Yuma, a city on the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona, declared a state of emergency Tuesday, saying it cannot handle the crush of illegal immigrants the government is being forced to release onto its streets,” reports the Washington Examiner.

“There is an imminent threat on having too many migrant releases into our community,” said Yuma Mayor Douglas Nicholls. “It’s above our capacity as a community to sustain.”

The move comes weeks after President Trump declared a federal “emergency” along the US-Mexico border; bypassing Congress to secure funding for his long-promised border wall.
