California Border Patrol sends agents to Texas to help with immigrant influx

By Marty Graham SAN DIEGO (Reuters) – U.S. Border Patrol officials in Southern California are sending agents and other resources to Texas to help stretched colleagues in the Rio Grande deal with a surge of immigrants illegally crossing the frontier, two Border Patrol union officials said on Friday. Officials are trying to handle an influx of new arrivals, many of them unaccompanied children and teens from Central America, that has crowded facilities in Texas and led to efforts to move some to other states. “U.S. Border Patrol San Diego Sector is sending Mobile Response Team trained agents from San Diego to enhance processing and detention capabilities in the Rio Grande Valley,” said Gabe Pacheco, spokesman for the National Border Patrol Council Local 1613, which covers San Diego.
