U.S. plans to send TSA to U.S.-Mexico border

Overburdened U.S. border patrol agents dealing with a flood of migrants are about to get some back-up.

The White House plans to REDIRECT SOME STAFF who work for the Transportation Security Administration to help with immigration duties along the U.S.-Mexico border.

A TSA spokesman said Wednesday the bureau was looking for volunteers to, quote, "address the humanitarian and security crisis at the southwest border." CNN reported that the TSA would pull 175 law enforcement officials and as many as 400 security staff from (airports?) in six U.S. cities, saying that the assignment would last at least 45 days.

But the border-bound staff would NOT include airport security screeners.

Even so, CNN reported that a U.S. official cited "some risk" in the plan since it comes at the start of the busy summer travel season.

The move comes after the U.S. government said it detained nearly 100,000 people crossing the southern border in April for the second month in a row... the highest numbers since 2007.
