Border Agents Arrest Hundreds of Illegal Aliens Again in Laredo


LAREDO, TX – Over the course of two days, Laredo Sector Border Patrol agents, along with Laredo Police Department (LPD), and other federal law enforcement partners, located five stash houses and apprehended over 200 illegal aliens throughout Laredo.

The first incident occurred during the mid-afternoon of June 7, when agents from Laredo South Station received information from a concerned citizen about a possible stash house on Mims Avenue.  Agents, along with LPD, conducted a welfare check at the residence and discovered 29 illegal aliens from the countries of Mexico, Honduras, and El Salvador.  The temperature inside the residence was close to 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

Later that day, Laredo South Station and LPD investigated a report of a suspected stash house located on Canelo Drive.  Law enforcement officers discovered 20 individuals that were in the U.S. illegally and from the country of Mexico.

The third stash house was located later that evening when Laredo South Station agents received a request from LPD of a suspected stash house on San Francisco Avenue.  Once agents arrived on scene, 82 illegal aliens from the countries of Guatemala, El Salvador, Mexico, Honduras, and Nicaragua were apprehended.

Agents, along with LPD, and federal law enforcement partners discovered a fourth stash house on Invierno Lane on June 8th.  A search of the residence resulted in the apprehension of 55 illegal aliens from the countries of Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Ecuador, and Nicaragua.

The final stash house was found by agents from the Laredo North Station and LPD on San Agustin Avenue.  Law enforcement officers apprehended 30 illegal aliens.  The individuals were from the countries of Mexico and Guatemala and were in the U.S. illegally.

The individuals from the stash houses were not wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) when encountered.  They were provided PPE and were medically screened and processed accordingly.

“Illegal stash houses remain in high use throughout our community, which continues to be highlighted by our City partners.  These houses often have no electricity, no running water or any type of air conditioning, and the people being held inside are not free to leave.  Summer heat makes these situations extremely dangerous,” said Deputy Chief Patrol Agent Carl E. Landrum.

I don't know much but I can attest that 6 months ago, I wasn't hearing reggeaton at Wal-Mart. You know they do studies about people's reaction to music while shopping... the music is supposed to add to an atmosphere of comfort and familiarity. I liked reggeaton 17 years ago, I still like it now but it does cause me to consider why the grocer is playing it more.

What a horrible situation I can’t understand how demo libs are ok with this!

Actually I do understand it’s really simple. Orange Man “bad”, anything and everything done by Senile Joe “good” ;)

It’s a tough thing for ANYONE to admit that they’re wrong…especially brainwashed liberal malcontents bought into the whole “America is systemically racist” BS and the need to “fundamentally change” our country ;)
