Immigration activist gathered in front of the McAllen Convention Center, during the Texas Hurricane Conference meeting, protesting against the Custom and Border Patrol enforcement at checkpoints during a hurricane evacuation. In 2008 the CBP Valley sector announced that they would be checking individuals immigration status at Falfurrias and Sarita checkpoints and detain undocumented immigrants. Some say that doing that would create a danger because long lines would form at the checkpoints as thousands of residents are evacuating.
