BP Sets Up Tent Underneath Bridge

Local News

As it deals with the large number of apprehensions, border patrol has set up a tent underneath the Paso Del Norte Port of Entry in downtown El Paso.

A border patrol spokesman tells us the tent is next to their processing facility and migrants are sent there to wait their turn to be processed.

According to officials, the tent, set up last month, only serves as a transitional shelter, not housing.
