EL PASO (AP) — A spokesman for the Border Patrol says it is shutting down nine stations, six of them in Texas, and plans to relocate the 41 agents who work at those outposts to positions nearer the borders.

Border Patrol press officer Bill Brooks says the stations being closed in Texas are in Abilene, San Angelo, Dallas, San Antonio, Lubbock and Amarillo. Stations will also be closed in Billings, Mont.; Twin Falls, Idaho, and Riverside, Calif.
