Yuma, AZ - Delays at border crossings into Mexico are on the rise as immigrants rush to get back to their homes for the holidays.
According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection pedestrian and vehicle lines are forming at the San Luis port of entry and other border crossings.
CBP says lines into Mexico typically form this time of year as immigrants try to get back to their hometowns to visit family. Traffic from Mexico into the U.S. is also heavier because more people are visiting friends or relatives or coming into the U.S. on shopping trips.
CBP officials say border crossers can help keep the lines moving by declaring items and making sure they're carrying their passports.
