It’s official- planes will be used to transport undocumented immigrants from the Rio Grande Valley to other sectors along the southern border.

New information released from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on Tuesday confirmed they will begin flying out undocumented immigrants from the Rio Grande Valley to other sectors in the southern border, due to a lack of space locally for them to be processed.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Due to capacity limitations at many U.S. Border Patrol stations on the southern border, and the limited capacity of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to accept transfer of family units, on March 19, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) began releasing non-criminal, processed family units.” said a spokesperson for DHS.

The move comes after agents are beyond capacity at all processing facilities in the Rio Grande Valley, including a tent processing center that went up May 4.

Rio Grande Valley Sector Border Patrol agents say another tent is already in the works.

The report states that Border Patrol apprehensions are now averaging over 4,500 people a day.
