( – The Daily Caller obtained a new memo in which U.S. Border Patrol agents stationed on the coastal and northern borders were being asked to help with the southern border to make the virtual processing of illegal immigrants faster.

According to the memo, there are over 19,100 migrants in custody. The message points out that over the weekend, those officials in the coastal and northern sectors needed to expedite their virtual processing. It adds that generally, the Border Patrol agents have been doing a good job of managing the in-custody numbers during the week of Thanksgiving, but because of the average number of low bookouts, the in-custody numbers have increased.

Agents use video calls to meet with migrants for virtual processing. Due to the strain on the southern border, many of the resources of the Border Patrol have been redirected to California, Arizona, and Texas. As part of their attempts to handle the influx of illegal immigrants, CBP announced on Monday that they would be restricting and suspending vehicle processing in Arizona and Texas for a time.

The Eagle Pass International Bridge 1 in Eagle Pass, Texas, would have vehicle processing operations completely suspended temporarily, while in Lukeville, Arizona, they would be restricted.

Tucson Sector Chief Patrol agent John Modlin pointed out that at this time all available personnel needed to help in addressing the flow of people into the country. In his post on X, formerly known as Twitter, he noted that the social media team would come back when the situation permitted it again.
