BORDER/CENTRAL AMERICA/ICE/IMMIGRATION/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The Trump administration is preparing to send Central American migrants caught along the southern border to Border Patrol stations “across the entire nation,’ according to a senior Border Patrol official who confirmed the plans Friday. With more than 4,500 people being caught each day crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, the agency has run out of room at its Border Patrol facilities in the four border states. The agency has started looking at its facilities around the country, which are mostly along the northern border with Canada and coastal states. That means states from Oregon to North Dakota to Maine may begin receiving planeloads of migrant families in the weeks to come. On Tuesday [5-14-19], Customs and Border Protection sent its first plane full of migrants from Texas to San Diego. The official confirmed reports on Thursday [5-16-19] that the Florida counties of Broward and Palm Beach are under consideration given the size and capabilities of Border Patrol stations in the South Florida region. But he did not say if the decision is final or when the flights would start.”
