Border Patrol Raids Texas House, Discovers 62 Undocumented Immigrants Inside

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:


  • The United States Border Patrol received information that dozens of illegal aliens were staying in a residence awaiting transport to get inside the interior of the United States.
  • On Tuesday, the Border Patrol Agents in cooperation with the Webb County Sheriff’s Office raided a two-bedroom house in Laredo, Texas and arrested 62 undocumented immigrants.
  • The individuals discovered inside the stash house were all Latin Americans from Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.



The 62 undocumented immigrants found in the Laredo stash house were living on a very limited food and water supply. These people are waiting to be transferred to another location inside the United States, the Border Patrol reported.

The Laredo Sector Assistant Chief Patrol Agent Jose Martinez issued this statement:

“This enforcement action demonstrates the United States Border Patrol’s commitment to work with the Webb County Sheriff’s Office and other law enforcement partners to disrupt illicit activity, deny criminal organizations the ability to operate, and protect human life.”

Also on Tuesday, authorities found 54 illegal aliens, including some children, in the back of a tractor-trailer near the San Antonio International Airport, 155 miles north of Laredo.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Special Agent in Charge Shane Folden told reporters that a 36-year-old manfrom Laredo had been arrested and will be charged with federal human smuggling violations, according to Fox News.

“These criminal organizations are comprised of extremely callous individuals who disregard human life and make large profits on treating humans as a commodity,” the ICE special agent said. “Many times they are able to accomplish this because the individual smuggler knows that the individuals being smuggled won’t seek out law enforcement.”

The Border Patrol confirmed that all the illegal immigrants arrested were processed.

In July 2017, 39 undocumented immigrants were discovered in a semitrailer in San Antonio Walmart parking lot. The driver of the truck was sentenced to life in prison without parole in April “after pleading guilty to a county of transporting immigrants resulting in death, and a conspiracy count,” Fox News reported.

Eight immigrants died in the trailer due to brutal conditions— failed refrigeration system, high temperatures, and lack of water—while two others succumbed after being hospitalized.

Yes, will be sent back to where they came from, and the person/people who got them here will be prosecuted, but they would have starved without food and water if not found. America needs to hear more about these captures and how we are dealing with the situation.
