Crossing illegally: Inside the McAllen Border Patrol Station

9 Photos

Immigrants who have been caught crossing the border illegally are housed inside the McAllen Border Patrol Station in McAllen, Texas where they are processed. More than 57,000 unaccompanied children have been apprehended at the southwestern border since October, many through the Rio Grande Valley, more than twice the total this time last year.

Photographer Rick Loomis went inside for a look at what the border patrol station is like.
