Border Patrol To Temporarily Halt Migrant Transfers To Laredo


The Border Patrol is temporarily halting the transfer of migrants to Laredo.  The incoming chief of the Border Patrol has told officials in Webb County that he is putting a ten-day hold on any further transfers of migrants to the city.  The move comes after both the city and the county issued disaster declarations related to the migrant transfers.  Webb County and the City of Laredo both say they cannot afford to pay the costs associated with sheltering migrants who cross the border in the Rio Grande Valley and Del Rio areas, but are then sent to Laredo for processing.
