EDINBURG, Texas – U.S. Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley (RGV), already stretched thin with illegal alien apprehensions, continue to detect and arrest criminal aliens.

Over the weekend, Border Patrol agents encountered a group of 130 illegal aliens consisting primarily of family units and unaccompanied children. The continuous flow of illegal aliens traversing through the region totaled over 4,100 apprehensions for the RGV Sector in just three days.

While dealing with the large volume of illegal aliens, agents continue to identify gang members and criminal aliens attempting to enter illegally through the RGV. 

The Sector is currently holding more than 8,000 subjects in custody, far exceeding the capacity of 3,363.

On Sunday, RGV Sector agents arrested a MS-13 gang member during a foiled smuggling attempt at the Javier Vega, Jr. checkpoint and, a short time later, McAllen agents arrested a Mexican national who had a previous arrest and conviction for Sexual abuse of a child under the age of 14.

Additionally, RGV Sector agents responded to seven 911 emergency calls.  Agents successfully located five illegal aliens in need of assistance before succumbing to the record-breaking high temperatures the Rio Grande Valley experienced over the weekend.
