U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Eagle Pass Station apprehended a large group of undocumented immigrants Monday morning in the small town of Quemado, which lies just northwest of Eagle Pass.

At approximately 8:40 a.m. agents conducting routine patrol operations in Quemado, encountered a group of 90 people who had recently crossed the Rio Grande River.

All of the people in the group were Honduran nationals, many of whom were women and children ranging from 1 to 17 years of age.

The group surrendered to the arresting agents without incident. A transport bus and several support units responded to the area to assist in transporting the group to the Eagle Pass South Station for processing.

“Although groups of this size, until recently, have been uncommon in the Del Rio area, our agents are encountering larger groups of immigrants with women and young children,” said Del Rio Sector Acting Chief Patrol Agent Matthew J. Hudak.

“Our highest priority will always be the safety of all people involved, no matter the situation. However, it is a criminal offense to enter the United States at a place other than a designated port of entry. Those who choose to enter illegally will be arrested and handled accordingly.”

Upon arrival, a woman in the group was experiencing abdominal pain and stated that she was pregnant. She was rushed to Fort Duncan Regional Medical Center where she went into labor and gave birth.

The Del Rio Border Patrol Sector is part of the South Texas Corridor, which leverages federal, state and local resources to combat transnational criminal organizations.

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 official ports of entry.

CBP is charged with securing the borders of the United States while enforcing hundreds of laws and facilitating lawful trade and travel.

The preceding was a press release from the U.S. Border Patrol.
