TUCSON, Ariz. – U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Ajo Station encountered 325 Central Americans after the group illegally entered the country and surrendered to agents west of Lukeville Thursday morning.

A U.S. Customs and Border Protection Air and Marine Operations helicopter, investigating a possible campfire spotted by a surveillance camera, discovered the group amid freezing temperatures. The group illegally entered the country through an area where there is only a vehicle barrier designed to prevent crossings.

The article goes on to state the following:

Group members indicated that buses and trucks dropped them off throughout the night on Mexico’s Federal Highway 2 that parallels the U.S. border less than 50 yards from this area. Once the entire group arrived, they crossed together at 8:00 a.m. to await authorities.

The group consisted of individuals and family units from Central America and included nearly 150 juveniles, 32 of whom were unaccompanied.

For the next several hours, agents patrolling other areas were reassigned to provide security, care, and transportation for the group.  Using vans and trucks, agents transported the group more than 15 miles through rugged desert terrain to a staging location where buses could transport the group to the nearest Border Patrol facility for processing.

Trained Department of Homeland Security medical staff, to include a physician, responded to screen the group. Two juveniles, a 5-year-old with possible chicken pox, and a 12-year-old with a skin infection, were sent to a local hospital for treatment while the remaining persons began immigration processing.

Year-to-date, Tucson Sector has messaged news releases of three groups totaling more than 650 apprehensions in this remote and unsecured location.

Customs and Border Patrol said Friday that they have apprehended 58 large groups (of 100 people or more) so far this fiscal year (starting October 1, 2018), compared to 13 groups of over 100 people in Fiscal Year 2018.

They wrote: “January border stats show a sustained, high volume of families & unaccompanied children from Central America illegally crossing along the SW Border. #USBP agents encountered 58 large groups (100+ people) so far this FY compared to 13 in FY18.”

Also on Friday, Border Patrol reported that agents in the Yuma sector arrested illegal aliens from 7 different countries just last week.

      If AOC, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Shumer get their way it is going to happen. We should be very scared.

    Some of these people are very smart. Just like this group of 325. They know if they go to the official border entries they will have to wait in line to be processed and possibly not make it in. If they enter illegally and then give themselves up they will get process before everyone else and then they are released into the country where they can hide out, steal someone’s identity to get a job and then get free public services. This is so wrong. There are many who have been waiting years to be processed thru legally and then we have the illegals who get right in. How can anyone think this is OK.

    I’m over this bullshit ! I’ll be happy to volunteer to help build the wall and I’m disabled.
