Border Patrol sending migrants to unofficial camps in California’s desert, locals say


Locals say U.S. Border Patrol is delivering hundreds of migrants into a series of camps, one of which is on private property, in the border community of Jacumba in the Southern California desert. Overnight temperatures in the desert have begun to drop below freezing.

Residents of the Southern California border community of Jacumba say hundreds of migrants are dropped off every day at ad hoc sites where conditions are often dire. They call it a humanitarian crisis.
