    Laredo border entry closed after large group of migrants tried to enter (Laredo Daily Times)

    LAREDO, Texas — U.S. Customs and Border Protection temporary closed the Gateway of the Americas Bridge in Laredo Monday.

    According to the Laredo Daily News, a large group of migrants became impatient waiting in shelters in Nuevo Laredo so walked together to the border.

    The report says the migrants wanted to know when they could fill out forms to apply for asylum.

    Customs and Border Patrol then shut down the walking areas to Bridge No. 1, except for U.S. Citizens and those with legal papers for crossing.


    In a statement, USCBP says the following:
    Bridge traffic at Gateway to the Americas Bridge is temporarily halted in both directions due to the possible threat of a significant group of undocumented migrants attempting entry without inspection at the bridge. CBP has deployed Mobile Field Force members to the area as a precaution. Vehicular traffic is being temporarily diverted to Juarez-Lincoln Bridge and Colombia-Solidarity Bridge in the interim.

    According to the Laredo Daily News, a majority of the migrants were Hondurans.


    As of 2:35 p.m., the Gateway to the Americas Bridge was reopened.
