(Plans to fly hundreds of illegals to El Centro canceled)…The plan was called off Sunday.
The US Border Patrol had planned on flying 140 illegal migrants from Texas to El Centro Monday, and another 140 in three days. They are among thousands arrested in Texas. The plan was to fly two plans to California, one to El Centro and another to San Diego, on Monday, with another flight in 3 days. Border Patrol agents in Texas have arrested over 174,000 illegal migrants since October. Part of those arrested were to be processed at the El Centro and San Diego Border Patrol Sector offices. The majority of those arrested are from Central America. Border Patrol officials would not say why the plan was called off, but they did say that it could be reinstated at any time.
