Border Patrol agents recently rescue almost 200 suspected illegal aliens from the desert of southwestern Arizona.
Authorities discussed the incident Wednesday, reporting the first half of the group was found near the Lukeville border crossing over the weekend. The rest were discovered several hours later hiding in the same area.
Those illegally crossing the border were largely from Central American countries like Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador and were traveling as families.
About a dozen of the children are unaccompanied minors. This comes amid a recent surge of families illegally crossing the southern border, because of loopholes in immigration law.
“As a result of Democrat supported loopholes in our federal laws, most illegal immigrants families and minors from Central America, who arrive unlawfully at the border, can not be detained together or removed together, only released. These are crippling loopholes.” — President Donald Trump
All 193 immigrants were checked out by doctors before they were handed over to authorities to be processed for possible immigration violations.
