HIDALGO, Texas – Rio Grande Valley Sector (RGV) Border Patrol agents encountered a large group of 206 migrants. 

Yesterday evening, Weslaco Border Patrol Station agents responded to a large group of migrants that illegally entered into the United States through Hidalgo, Texas. Agents encountered 206 migrants and identified 164 as family members, 35 as unaccompanied children, and seven as single adults. The migrants are citizens of Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Belize, and United States. All subjects were transported to a Border Patrol facility and processed accordingly.

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.
