The first ladies of both Guatemala and Honduras on Thursday toured border patrol facilities packed at more than twice their capacity with illegal immigrants fleeing those countries and others.

Department of Homeland Security Acting Secretary Kevin McAleenan invited the women to McAllen, Texas to meet their citizens face to face, to hear why they are fleeing by the thousands to cross through the Rio Grande Valley into the U.S., KGBT’s Sydney Hernandez reports.

“Currently, there are 6,700 immigrants in custody in the RGV alone, well over the sector holding capacity of 3,300,” Hernandez posted to Twitter Thursday. “Most of them are from the Northern Triangle and that’s exactly why the first lady of Honduras and first lady of Guatemala came to McAllen, today.”

The women toured the McAllen processing center, overrun by 1,600 illegal immigrants apprehended in the Rio Grande Valley every day. Those illegal immigrants are quickly processed and transferred to shelters in McAllen and elsewhere.

Guatemalan first lady Patricia Marroquin De Morales and Ana Garcia Carias, the first lady of Honduras, made a stop at the Catholic Charities Respite Center in downtown McAllen, where about 900 illegal immigrants arrive every day. There, the women offered vague generalities about what their governments are doing to control the massive migration, but promised to meet with DHS officials to find ways to cooperate.

“Carias says they have campaigns to show the risks of migrating, as well as programs to deter crime and provide solutions for poverty,” Hernandez said, interpreting the first lady’s comments.

Morales blamed the problem on the criminal organizations profiting from the immigration crisis.
