EDINBURG, TX – After several days of silence, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents resumed reporting mass illegal alien arrests along the border. Reports out of Washington D.C. indicate the Biden Administration had instructed agents to stop reporting on the surge of illegal border crossings but those reports have not been confirmed.
The surge of unaccompanied alien children continues at an alarming rate.
The following is the first report of the arrests of large groups of illegal aliens since last week.
Rio Grande City Border Patrol (RGC) station agents encountered two large groups of illegal aliens entering in Starr County, Texas.
Tuesday morning, RGC agents working near Roma, Texas, responded to a report of a large group of illegal aliens crossing the Rio Grande. As agents arrived, they observed dozens of people consisting of family members and unaccompanied alien children (UAC) crossing the river. Responding agents apprehended 145 illegal aliens in total. 121 family members and 24 UACs were identified within the group.
About the same time, RGC agents working near La Grulla, Texas, encountered an almost identical situation. The group was of 131 illegal aliens and consisted of 99 family members, 28 UACs, and four single adults.
This year, RGV agents have encountered 35 groups of 100 or more people illegally entering the United States.
Border Patrol is processing the subjects accordingly.
