EMERGENCY: Over 10,000 Illegals Apprehended In Rio Grande Valley Last Week – 2,400 In One Day

Published

on

Last week, the Mexican government said that a caravan with 10,000 migrants would arrive at the U.S. border soon. It’s unclear if this is the massive group the Border Patrol took into custody. The flows are unending and will get worse. Violent cartels are part of the reason we are seeing larger & larger numbers of migrants cross into the U.S. illegally as they are being bused to the border.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported today:

Rio Grande Valley Sector Holding 7,000 in Custody

EDINBURG, Texas – U.S. Border Patrol agents continue to process and receive unprecedented numbers of illegal aliens entering the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) Sector.

On Saturday, agents from Brownsville to Roma apprehended over 2,400 illegal aliens, the majority of which consist of family units and unaccompanied children who readily turn themselves in to agents.

Over the past week, more than 10,000 illegal aliens were apprehended, making it one of the highest weekly total ever experienced in this sector. Currently, stations and processing centers are holding more than 7,000 illegal aliens in custody. At the current rate, the RGV Sector is expected to surpass the mass migration influx experienced in 2014.

RGV Sector Border Patrol agents continue to process unprecedented volumes of mostly family units and unaccompanied alien children arriving illegally between the ports, including 2,400 in a single day and 10,000 in one week within the RGV Sector area of responsibility, from Roma to Brownsville, Texas.

Border Patrol is processing all subjects accordingly. On Saturday, the 40,000-square foot Donna Temporary Facility went operational to assist in holding family units pending transfer to ICE-ERO or HHS-ORR custody.

“We’ve exceeded our capacity and we’re doing all we can to house migrants in a humane place and transfer them in and out in a timely fashion as none of the Border Patrol facilities, including the one in Donna, are meant to be a long term detention centers,” said Chief Rodolfo Karisch.

Via U.S. Customs and Border Protection:

CALEXICO, Calif. — U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers working at the Calexico downtown port of entry intercepted $155,540 worth of methamphetamine and heroin in three vehicles over the weekend.

The first seizure occurred on Saturday, May 11, at about 10:50 a.m., when a CBP officer encountered two men who entered the border crossing in a Ford F-150 truck. The CBP officer referred the 31-year-old and the 41-year-old to the vehicle inspection lot for a more in-depth examination.

A canine team screened the vehicle and the detector dog alerted to the vehicle’s undercarriage. Following an intensive search, officers discover five wrapped packages containing a total of 11 pounds of methamphetamine stashed inside transmission transfer case of the truck. The methamphetamine has an estimated street value of $ 17,600.

The driver and passenger, both U.S. citizens and residents of Stockton, were arrested for the alleged narcotics smuggling attempt.

At about 2:40 p.m., the next day, a 33-year-old woman entered the U.S. driving a 2004 Nissan Maxima sedan. A CBP officer conducting primary inspections of vehicles and travelers referred both the driver and vehicle for a more intensive inspection.

While officers were conducting their search of the Maxima using the port’s imaging system and a canine team, a CBP detector dog alerted to the vehicle’s engine area. Officers subsequently searched the area and discovered three wrapped packages containing a total of seven pounds of heroin inside a non-factory compartment in the battery of the vehicle. The narcotics have an estimated street value of $65,940.

The driver, a Mexican citizen and resident of Mexicali, Baja Mexico, was arrested for the alleged narcotics smuggling attempt.

Hours later, at about 5:40 p.m., a CBP officer working at the port of entry referred a 27-year-old male U.S. citizen driving a 2008 Mazda CX7 for further examination.

CBP officers conducted an examination of the sedan that included a canine screening. The detector dog alerted to the rear back seat of the vehicle. Officers searched the vehicle and discovered 49 wrapped packages of methamphetamine concealed inside the gas tank of the vehicle. The weight of the narcotic was 45 pounds with a street value of approximately $ 72,000.

In each of the three narcotics incidents, the drivers and passenger were turned over to Homeland Security Investigation agents for further processing and were later transported to the Imperial County Jail.

CBP seized the narcotics and vehicles.
