Yesterday morning, RGC agents working in La Grulla, Texas, encountered a large group of migrants after they illegally entered the United States. The group was made up of five single adults, 18 unaccompanied children, and 105 family members. The 128 migrants are from the countries of Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, and Nicaragua. Border Patrol processed all subjects accordingly.

Fiscal year to date Rio Grande Valley Border Sector (RGV) agents have encountered nearly 70 large groups of migrants entering the United States.

Even with the spread of the COVID-19 virus, human smugglers continue to try these brazen attempts with zero regard for the lives they endanger nor to the health of the citizens of our great nation.  The U.S. Border Patrol agents of the Rio Grande Valley Sector will continue to safeguard the nation and community against these criminal elements.
