Agents assigned to the Eagle Pass Border Patrol Station encountered a large group of migrant families and unaccompanied minors after they illegally crossed the border from Mexico.
Del Rio Sector agents patrolling near the small border community of Quemado, Texas, on Monday encountered a group of 90 migrants who had just crossed the Rio Grande River from Mexico. Border Patrol officials reported that the migrants were all Honduran nationals. Many of the group were women and children. Officials said the children ranged from one to 17 years of age.
The group surrendered to the agents without incident, officials reported. The agents arranged for a transport bus and took the migrants to the Eagle Pass Station for processing and a biometric background investigation.
