Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents arrested 75 illegal aliens with assistance from National Guard helicopter crews working under Operation Guardian Support over the weekend.

Throughout the weekend, agents encountered 10 separate groups across the desert west of Tucson. Border Patrol agents aboard National Guard UH-72 Lakota and UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters guided other agents on the ground to make the arrests, and at times deployed to the ground to make the arrests themselves.

In stark contrast to the large groups of Central American family units surrendering in recent months, these persons were found north of the border in rugged, remote terrain and wearing camouflage clothing to avoid apprehension.

OGS personnel continue to serve as a valuable assets in the Border Patrol’s security mission. The National Guard provides assistance in multiple areas such as aerial support, road maintenance, fleet repair, camera surveillance, and infrastructure construction and repair.
