As thousands of undocumented immigrants continue to unlawfully cross into the United States, Border Patrol's resources have been put under a strain. This includes the buses that agents use to transport these families to other stations or even to the hospital.
One month after the mayor of Yuma signed an emergency declaration, following an overwhelming influx of illegal immigrants crossing in through our region, he explained how that trend is only growing and the problem is not stopping.
San Luis City Council and several local church leaders gathered to draft a plan of action to help assist the asylum seekers who were released in the city from Border Patrol's custody.
Border Patrol agents released more undocumented immigrants in the city of San Luis Monday afternoon. Local churches in the area are helping out families by providing transportation assistance.
