TUCSON, Ariz. – Ajo Station Border Patrol agents encountered a group of 128 illegal aliens several miles west of the Lukeville Port on Friday. Agents patrolling near the international border fence found the group, presumably brought to the border by human smugglers who remained in Mexico.
The group was comprised of adults and children, some as young as four years of age, and are from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and Mexico. Agents also identified several adults in the group who had been previously charged with immigration violations. Agents medically evaluated all 128 immigrants and determined they were in good health.
After transporting everyone to the Ajo Border Patrol station for processing, the immigrants were turned over to the Enforcement Removal Operations within Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
It’s truly a crazy world we live in and with news traveling at the speed of the light these days it’s difficult to keep up with everything that is going on in America, let alone the world. It is so easy to forget the men and women of our Border Patrol and ICE working day and night to protect us, as well as our military and other LEO’s.
One of the things I have come to realize in the writing of these articles is that one of the most crime-ridden and dangerous areas in the world is our own southern border…Especially during the Obama administration where numerous incidents of gunfire between agents and illegals took place.
I have written to a great extent, and will continue to write, about the truly spectacular work that our Border Patrol is doing at our southern border under the Trump administration. It’s obvious by any measure that the Border Patrol and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement are more effective than ever before.
With the tragedy that we found out about today, where an illegal alien killed a young vibrant woman, we should be extra thankful Border Patrol and ICE are working hard to keep the illegals out of our country.
