Border Patrol says more than 1,000 migrants, most from Venezuela, turn themselves in to immigration authorities in El Paso

The United States Border Patrol reported that more than 1,000 migrants who crossed into the country from Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, turned themselves in this Wednesday to the agents of this institution in El Paso, Texas.

According to a publication on social networks by the Border Patrol in the El Paso sector, the majority of migrants are from Venezuela. “Those immigrants who cannot be removed under Title 42 and who do not have a legal basis to remain in the US will be placed in removal proceedings under Title 8,” the authority explained.

According to a spokesperson for Mexico’s State Population Council, the migrants entered through a service door in the wall that divides the United States with Mexico, normally used for the crossing of maintenance vehicles. In images captured this Wednesday by CNN from Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, a large number of migrants can be seen on the wall that divides both countries.
