It was a busy Wednesday afternoon at the Nogales International Border as people hit the road to their Thanksgiving destination. 

Myra Giarraputo picked up her family who came in from Mexico. She says, she will be feeding more than 25 people. 

While travel takes a while - she's just happy her family from Mexico and Tucson will be with her for the holiday. 

But for Fernanda Ruiz she's heading south for Thanksgiving. "All my family lives in Nogales so I'm going to have to have a nice dinner."

With many people going in and out of the US/Mexico border - Bus shuttle companies are seeing a spike in sales as they head to Tucson, Phoenix and Los Angeles.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection expect millions of people across the border and wait will be long so they're asking people to plan ahead.
