MIDLAND - The U.S. Border Patrol is looking to set up shop near the Midland Airport.

The Marfa sector is in talks with airport officials about leasing six acres of land.

It's still in the beginning stages, but if approved, The Border Patrol would shell out $33,000 a year to rent out the space.

The Marfa sector has been expanding for the past two years.

They've grown from having 250 to 400 agents.
