MISSION, Texas – U.S. Border Patrol agents working with federal and local law enforcement agencies dismantle a human smuggling stash house, leading to the arrest of 16 illegal aliens. 

Yesterday afternoon, Rio Grande Valley Sector agents, working in collaboration with Homeland Security Investigations and Hidalgo County Constables Office (HCCO), received information of a stash house operation in a rural Mission, Texas, neighborhood. Upon locating the residence, agents observed a vehicle leave the suspected stash house and requested the assistance of HCCO to conduct a vehicle stop. While speaking to the driver, she admitted to being a Mexican national illegally present in the United States. Additionally, the driver informed deputies and agents that multiple subjects were inside a trailer she just left. Inside the small trailer, agents and deputies discovered 15 illegal aliens from the countries of Mexico and Honduras.

Border Patrol processed the case and subjects accordingly.

The public is encouraged to take a stand against crime in their communities and report suspicious activity at 800-863-9382.

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.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation’s borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.
