(FOX NEWS) – The Department of Homeland Security has put out a call for employees to volunteer at the southern border, as officials say they are tackling “large numbers” of migrants – and amid ongoing concerns about a coming surge in the spring and summer months.

The Wednesday email by Deputy Secretary John Tien, and seen by Fox News, requests volunteers for the DHS Volunteer Force, more than a year after the volunteer force was activated ahead of last year’s migrant surge. The force has also been used to help with the Afghan evacuee resettlement operation last year, as well as during the 2019 border crisis. The email says more than 1,400 employees have volunteered.
