US. The Southern California Border Patrol announced that it began dropping off migrants at Greyhound Station in San Bernardino last Wednesday, as the capacity of residential buildings is no longer sufficient, according to a report.
The move took place in the midst of a flood of migrants – mostly from Central America – who crossed the US-Mexico border in recent months. In the seven months leading up to April, the concerns of unaccompanied children or migrant families had risen by more than 380 percent over the same period last year, Reuters reported.
US. According to ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), the influx of migrants overwhelmed the US border patrols originally built for single adults. The agency said the broadcasters had trouble keeping up with the numbers.
