Border Patrol Agents Find 163 Illegal Aliens Wandering in Arizona Desert
[AP via Townhall] The Associated Press reports that United States Border Patrol agents have once again rescued hundreds of illegal aliens found wandering the Arizona desert after crossing the Mexican border into the country and being abandoned by human traffickers.
While the number of large-scale caravans of migrant men, women, and children entering the southern border has decreased since President Trump was elected, Border Patrol agents occasionally apprehend illegal aliens in large numbers as they did last Saturday near the Lukeville Port in Ajo, AZ.
In a statement given to Breitbart Texas, Tuscon Sector Border Patrol agents blamed "transnational crime organizations" who "exploit the vulnerability of foreign nationals with false promises of legal status and encourage dangerous border crossings, which place lives at risk" for the incident. According to the AP report, 163 men, women, and children from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador were taken in by authorities for medical evaluation. The youngest of these migrants was 4 months old.
