Murrieta Border Patrol Responds to Report That Hundreds of Illegal Immigrants Will Be Released in Area

Border officials apparently considered processing illegal immigrants arrested in Texas at the Murrieta station, but have decided against it.

A report this week that's gaining viral momentum suggests that some 500 people in the United States illegally are headed to the Murrieta area each week.

According to Breitbart Texas, "...the San Diego Sector of the U.S. Border Patrol is making plans to receive, process, and then release 500 illegal aliens into the U.S. per week who were shipped in from Texas, specifically from the Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Sector."

That report further indicated the Murrieta station would be handling the bulk of the work:

"The Murrieta Border Patrol Station of the San Diego Sector is not equipped to handle that type of influx of illegal aliens, both in terms of manpower and infrastructure,” said Shawn Moran, Vice President of the NBPC, in an exclusive interview with Breitbart Texas. The station is generally utilized as Border Patrol station, not a processing center."

Murrieta Patch reached out to local border patrol officials, who say this is not going to happen.

Here is the statement that was provided to Patch on the issue Thursday:

The U.S. Border Patrol has not and is not currently transporting undocumented aliens from Texas to San Diego County.  We constantly monitor operations and develop contingency plans to adjust our operations to address specific threats or operational issues.  Utilizing the Murrieta station to process illegal aliens apprehended in Texas was looked at as an option last month, however that option was not acted upon.  After detainees are processed they are turned over to the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Enforcement Removal Operations for custody determinations.

Patch also tried to get in contact with The National Border Patrol Council, who has not returned calls for comment as of this time.
