Nearly 400 migrants walk for miles at border, surrender to agents

Immigration

Hundreds of migrants seen walking along the border turned themselves in to Border Patrol agents on Thursday.

Officials say nearly 400 Central American migrants walked for about 12 miles along the border on the U.S. side, looking for an unfenced area to surrender themselves to authorities.

The group eventually found a spot near the Santa Fe bridge in Downtown El Paso where they were met by agents.
