  • We spent a day on the US-Mexico border with the US Border Patrol in El Paso, TX where the agency is overwhelmed by the volume of migrants crossing into the United States. US Border Patrol Agent Tessa Reyes escorted us to multiple areas where migrants cross the border to begin their process of requesting asylum.

    The US has seen a major surge in Central American migrant families arriving in the US and requesting asylum, leaving Border Patrol agents and facilities overwhelmed. Per the Border Patrol, Business Insider was not allowed to film inside the processing center where immigrants are temporarily detained.

    During a visit to the Border Patrol's training academy in Artesia, New Mexico, we sat down with Acting Commissioner of US Customs and Border Protection John Sanders, who called the situation at the border "unprecedented."
