PHOENIX -- Officials with the Honduran and Guatemalan consulates in Phoenix say no more migrant families are being transported to Arizona from Texas.

Consulate officials tell KPHO-TV they've been told by Immigration and Customs Enforcement that Thursday was the last day of migrant drop-offs.

The DHS began transporting hundreds of undocumented immigrants from southern Texas to Arizona over the Memorial Day weekend and then releasing them at Greyhound bus stations in Tucson and Phoenix.

DHS officials say the U.S. Border Patrol didn't have the manpower to handle a surge in immigrants from Central America crossing the border illegally in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer sent a letter Monday to President Barack Obama, saying she was alarmed that federal officials didn't notify state and local law enforcement.
