RIO GRANDE VALLEY - Evidence obtained by CHANNEL 5 NEWS shows immigrants are being told how to answer questions from Border Patrol when they cross the river.

A Border Patrol agent in the Rio Grande Valley sent CHANNEL 5 NEWS a picture of a piece of paper found on a detained immigrant.

CHANNEL 5 NEWS obtained a picture that shows a list of questions typed in Spanish that people are expecting to answer, once they turn themselves in to Border Patrol.

Thousands of people, including unaccompanied children, are crossing our border into the Rio Grande Valley and turning themselves in.

The federal government is now scrambling to open new detention centers to hold all of those people.

They are also trying to curb the flow of immigrants that are coming from Central America.

We asked Border Patrol how agents use this kind of evidence while they're processing the unaccompanied children.
