As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by YAHOO.COM:
Officials at U.S. Border Patrol stations are struggling to process a record number of asylum-seeking Central American families.
Now, instead of transferring the families to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the border agents are releasing people at shelters and Greyhound bus stations in the Coachella Valley and Inland Empire in California.
The article goes on to state the following:
An infusion of more than $500,000 in California state funds is making it easier for a Catholic ministry to house some migrant families in Coachella. But the shelter sometimes reaches capacity and the Indio bus station has been selling out of tickets, forcing Border Patrol agents to transport the migrants farther from the border.
“The whole system is under severe pressure,” said David Kim, assistant chief patrol agent for the Border Patrol’s El Centro sector.
Meanwhile, the Indio bus station has been selling out of tickets, forcing Border Patrol agents to transport the migrants further from the border, to the San Bernardino Greyhound station.
“The whole system is under severe pressure,” said a Border Patrol agent.
