One Texas Border Sector Witnessed 500 Migrants Arrested in a Single Day
Bob Price of Breitbart News reported that Rio Grande Valley Sector Border Patrol agents arrested north of 500 migrants in a span of a day.
These apprehensions occurred along a section of the southern border with Mexico close to Mission, Texas.
On the night of February 24, 2021, McAllen Station Border Patrol found a group of 130 migrants, mostly comprised of families and unaccompanied minors. Per information that Rio Grande Valley Sector Border Patrol officials relayed to the public, large groups of migrants crossing the border have been spotted by law enforcement with greater frequency as of late.
Agents interviewed the migrants and discovered that they hailed from countries such as El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua.
On the day of the mass arrest of migrants, agents received information from the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office concerning a stash house allegedly used for human smuggling located close to Mission. When agents and deputies arrived at the scene of the stash house, a number of suspected migrants began to bolt from the location.
Upon arriving at the suspected stash house, agents discovered 36 people clustered in a small area in the residence. After a first round of screening, the agents discovered two migrants with flu-like symptoms. In addition, another migrant was experiencing an epileptic attack.
According to official reports from this encounter, this group of migrants hailed from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico.
“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,” Rio Grande Valley Sector officials declared in a written statement.
Incidents like these will increase in frequency due to the Biden administration’s lack of focus on migration.
Biden and co, are engulfed in culturally radical beliefs that view borders as passé, thus making the security of the nation an incredibly low priority. Republicans should be immediately campaigning on securing the border and offer a sharp contrast to the Biden administration’s lax migration policies.
Voters will handsomely reward candidates who campaign on immigration restriction at the polls.
