With shelters at 'max' California border agents drop migrants at bus stationU.S. Border Patrol in the El Centro area of southern California said it began to drop migrants off at San Bernardino’s Greyhound Station on Wednesday after it ran out of room to hold them. “It was a decision that was made because they couldn’t take any more families and obviously we cannot keep them in custody for much longer because we are at capacity,” said Miguel Garcia, acting assistant chief patrol agent. Apprehensions of migrant families in California’s El Centro sector rose 383 percent in the seven months through April from a year earlier as record numbers of mainly Central Americans crossed the border, Border Patrol data shows.
