BP: Immigrants being Transported Out of the Valley to Aid Surge
WESLACO – Border Patrol is flying immigrants caught in the Rio Grande Valley to other parts of the United States.
There will be three flights a week from the Valley to San Diego.
Border agents will only fly family units and up to 135 people at a time.
The interim Border Patrol sector chief in San Diego says the plan will help the “over-stretched staff” in the Valley.
They're also using buses to transport immigrants from the Valley to Laredo.
