The immigration surge seen in south Texas has not bypassed Laredo.

Central Americans have been heading into the United states and on Thursday a group of women were released downtown.

Haphazard feet and confused faces begin spilling, filling the downtown Greyhound station.

About 40 women are being released on their own recognizance by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Coming from violent-torn countries, they are aiming for a safe area but they also have orders to appear before an immigration judge.

It's an uncertain future for them and for the new White House administration vowing to address this two year surge next year.
