Flow of Central American Immigrants Slowing Down

Local News

The flow of Central American migrants is slowing. Many planning to come to the U.S. through Mexico via the Rio Grande Valley have changed their plans. That means large numbers could drop at the Respite Center in McAllen.

Migrants from Central America interview by Mexican reporters say they are holding off on their trip to the U.S. The majority of the 500 women and children in a Mexican shelter say they want to wait at least a few more weeks.

Last year, U.S. Border Patrol Agents detained more than 400,000 people. The vast majority in the valley were from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras.
