Border Patrol officials confirm they’ve been dropping migrants off at bus stations in Southern California. Agents from the El Centro sector told KPCC they began dropping migrants off May 15 at the San Bernardino Greyhound station. The agency said in a statement that large groups of people and high numbers in Border Patrol custody have “placed us at the breaking point.” Advocates said some people are being dropped off with no money or bus tickets.
