Group of 330 Migrants Apprehended in New Mexico, Says CBP


U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reported they apprehended 330 migrants who illegally crossed into the United States “one minute passed midnight” on Monday at Antelope Wells, a remote southwestern New Mexico port of entry.

The group mainly consisted of Central American families and unaccompanied minors, although CBP did not identify their countries of origin. Border Patrol Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) said they provided initial medical screenings and determined none of the subjects in custody required immediate medical attention, according to the agency’s press release.

This marked the second time in less than one week that a large group of Central American families and unaccompanied alien minors tried to enter the U.S. illegally and, then, surrendered to Border Patrol agents working at the Camp Bounds Forward Operating Base at the Antelope Wells Port of Entry.
