US immigration law officials releasing thousands of migrants

Immigrants who arrive in Florida to live often have traveled across the United States before choosing a residential location. Many have made their entrances to the U.S. through the Rio Grande Valley. In fact, U.S. immigration law officials say the number of migrants passing through this sector has greatly increased in recent months.

It used to be typical for approximately 50 people to pass through an immigrant holding station every day in the Rio Grande Valley. Current data shows that number has soared to more than 300 people daily, many of whom are unaccompanied children. Border facility officials have stated that there are more than 5,000 immigrants currently being held, which means the facility is operating at 174 percent capacity.

Thousands of immigrants who have come from many different countries are going to be released from the facility in the days and weeks ahead. Children who have no adult with them are transferred over to Child Protection Services. Officials say they try to help equip adults passing through with cell phones and sometimes help them purchase travel tickets to other locations after they have connected with family members already living in the United States.

Any number of legal issues can arise for undocumented travelers. U.S. immigration law officers often target those without paperwork for deportation. Trying to navigate the immigration system alone can be quite stressful and, perhaps, even frightening at times. Any man or woman in Florida who is currently worried about such problems may reach out for legal support by requesting a consultation with an experienced immigration attorney.
