The move is expected to consist of a few hundred officials along with a maximum of 400 volunteers.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is preparing to deploy hundreds of officials to help the Department of Homeland Security at the southern border amid the ongoing immigration crisis, according to reports.

“TSA, like all DHS components, is supporting the DHS effort to address the humanitarian and security crisis at the southwest border,” a spokesperson told Fox News.

“TSA is in the process of soliciting volunteers to support this effort while minimizing operational impact.”

The move is expected to consist of a few hundred officials along with a maximum of 400 volunteers.

Some volunteers are expected to consist of department attorneys and air marshals.

According to CNN, the agency does not initially plan to involve uniformed airport screeners, but some parts of the TSA will be requested to contribute around 10 percent of their workforce.

In March, President Donald Trump President Donald Trump announced his plan to send "volunteer force" to the US Southern Border.

But up to now, the deployment schedule had not yet been finalized, and Americans should not be concerned it will affect air travel safety due to "deployment not including any frontline resource," a spokesperson said.

Earlier this year, Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents arrested almost 400 migrants in just 48 hours after they used old border vehicle barriers to enter the US illegally.

Agents discovered a large group of migrants entering the U.S. illegally, west of the Lukeville Port of Entry while monitoring surveillance camera equipment.

Migrants were seen ducking under the post-and-rail vehicle barriers used in that section to delineate the Arizona-Mexico border, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials said.

According to Fox News: U.S. Customs and Border Protection said it apprehended or turned away more than 109,000 migrants attempting to cross the border In April, the second month in a row the number has topped 100,000 and averaged more than 3,000 apprehensions a day.

Last month, Rio Grande Valley Sector Chief Patrol Agent Rodolfo Karisch told lawmakers on the Senate Homeland Committee that his sector is being hit by a caravan-size influx of migrants crossing the border each week.

“This is not a manufactured crisis created by those of us who live and work in the border area. Border Patrol continues to apprehend record numbers of people who purposely violate U.S. immigration laws; we are taken advantage of by gaps in our legal frameworks and that undermine the rule of laws,” he said.
