Texas border patrol report a rise in unaccompanied children from the countries of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador

U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Weslaco station encountered multiple groups, totaling 156 illegal aliens within hours of each other.

Thursday evening, Weslaco agents working near Hidalgo, Texas, encountered a group of 31 illegal aliens while patrolling along the Rio Grande. Agents determined the group to be family units and unaccompanied children from the countries of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.

Early this morning, a group of 81 illegal aliens, comprised of family units and unaccompanied children from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, turned themselves in to Weslaco agents near Hidalgo, Texas.

Hours later, Weslaco agents responded to a report of a large group attempting to illegally enter the United States near the same area in Hidalgo, Texas. Agents responded and encountered 44 family units and unaccompanied children from the country of Guatemala.

Border Patrol is processing the subjects accordingly.

The Rio Grande Valley Sector currently has multiple campaigns focused on rescues and danger awareness, such as “Operation Big Rig” and “No Se Arriesgue” to combat smuggling and ultimately save lives. Call 911 to report suspicious activity; “They’re humans, not cargo!”
