Immigrant groups arriving by the hundreds at US-Mexico border: officials:
Groups of hundreds of immigrants from all over the world are turning up at Texas’ border with Mexico, taxing law enforcement resources that are already stretched thin, according to the Border Patrol.
Images released by the agency show large crowds of immigrants detained on the border in Starr County. In that jurisdiction alone, the Border Patrol said its agents had found six large groups, defined as having at least 100 people, over the weekend.
The six groups totaled 1,029 immigrants.
Among them were 301 children traveling without a parent or guardian, 406 single adults and 322 family units from Cuba, Romania and several Central and South American countries.
Near Eagle Pass, Texas, agents found three large groups in less than 15 hours, the agency said Tuesday. A group of 126 illegal migrants was found just before 4 a.m. Saturday. A second group of 131 immigrants was found later that morning. By 6:15 p.m., agents came across a third large group, this one with 131 immigrants. --->READ MORE HERE
