EL CENTRO, CA (KYMA/CNN) – About 140 immigrants arrived in El Centro, CA on Wednesday.

The group, which included children, were heading to a border patrol station for processing.

This week, protestors blocked a similar transfer or migrants in Murrieta, C.

The recent influx of undocumented immigrants has overwhelmed border stations in places like Texas, forcing the federal government to send migrants to facilities in different parts of the country.

President Barack Obama has asked Congress for $2 billion in emergency funding to deal with that he has called a “humanitarian crisis.”
