MCALLEN – Handling the thousands of immigrants at the Central Processing Center has proven to be a challenge for federal authorities and local shelters.

About 300 field operation officers from other parts of the nation are working in the sector to help out.

KRGV’s Christian Colón made a visit to the processing center and was allowed in with only a pen and paper.  

Over 2,400 immigrants are being held inside chain-link fencing in the processing center.

Border Patrol agents say there are hundreds of immigrants coming into the U.S. with fake documents; as a result, Central American consulates are set up to validate documents.
