TSA To Deploy Hundreds Of Officials To The Border

CNN reports the Transportation Security Administration is planning to send hundreds of officials to help with efforts to control migrant inflows on the southern border.

The task of the TSA workers, which a source said will include air marshals, will be to assist temporarily with immigration duties.

TSA acknowledged in an internal email the "immediate need" comes with the acceptance of "some risk" of depleted resources in aviation security.

TSA plans for the deployments to involve up to 175 law enforcement officials and as many as "400 people from Security Ops," according to two sources and the email.

The email says that TSA will not include uniformed airport screeners in the efforts.

The initial teams will reportedly be drawn from six cities.
