Homeland Security’s inspector general said Friday that “dangerous overcrowding” is out of control for illegal immigrants kept in Border Patrol facilities along the U.S.-Mexico boundary.

Migrants are being held in “standing-room-only conditions” for days or even weeks, and in some cases have far exceeded legal limits on how long they can be kept, investigators found during unannounced site visits.

The investigation warned of potential clashes or riots, saying that “rising tensions among detainees could turn violent.”

And the dangers extend to the Border Patrol agents themselves, who have “a high incidence of illness” after contact with the massive number of migrants surging into the U.S.

The crush is also causing some agents to speed up their retirement or look for other jobs, with reports of job-related anxiety rising.
