UNDATED (AP) — The U.S. Border Patrol says it's stopped transporting Central American children and families to San Diego after they're arrested in South Texas.

The short-lived experiment sparked a backlash in one city when protesters blocked a road and forced the rerouting of busloads of immigrants.

Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, lawmakers are working out a possible compromise to deport migrant minors more quickly.

It's part of President Barack Obama's $3.7 billion emergency request to address the immigration crisis.
