Illegal immigrants that are or already left Corpus Christi and the places that are being affected by hurricane Harvey, have to take precautions with the border patrol. There are several “chekpoints” that are located in the highways near the border. These checkpoints are located about 25 to 72 miles from the border. And their job is to detect any illegal situation that goes through there.
While 2017 hurricane Harvey is taking place, the border patrol have clearly said that they will not close their locations because of the hurricane. They will stay open and going to follow the law of the country. Unless this represents a risk for the agents on these zones.
In other words, people without proper documentation or without papers, have a huge risk with the border patrol. They either have the risk of staying under hurricane Harvey or cross one of these checkpoints and take the risk of being incarcerated or deported for not having papers.
If you have fled or running from a place affected by hurricane Harvey, be precautious. You need to know where these checkpoints are located and if you do not have the proper documentation, do not pass through. Rent a hotel outside the danger zone.
