EDINBURG, Texas – Rio Grande Valley Sector (RGV) Border Patrol agents disrupt a human smuggling stash house operating in the Rio Grande Valley.

Yesterday, the Pharr Police Department contacted RGV agents requesting their assistance with a possible human smuggling stash house operating in Pharr, Texas. When agents and officers arrived on scene, they discovered 71 illegal aliens inside the home. Agents determined the subjects were from the countries of Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador, Mexico, and Honduras.  Among the group, three children were discovered traveling by themselves.  

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.  The U.S. Border Patrol agents of the Rio Grande Valley Sector will continue to safeguard the nation and community against these criminal elements.

Border Patrol will process all subjects accordingly. Please visit www.cbp.gov to view additional news releases and other information pertaining to Customs and Border Protection.  Follow us on Twitter @CBPRGV@USBPChiefRGV and @USBPDepChiefRGV
