According to Border Agents over 2,000 migrants were apprehended at one small border area in just three days.


During a three-day period, McAllen Station agents apprehended more than 2,000 migrants in an area along the border known as Rincon Village. The area has long been known as a staging area where Mexican cartels cross the migrants who will then surrender to Border Patrol agents.

“A majority of apprehensions are occurring near Granjeno, just south of Mission, in what’s become a staging area dubbed ‘Rincon Village,’ where illegal immigrants of all ages turn themselves in to agents. The area is well known and has become a gateway for human smuggling,” Chief Padilla explained.

Sector officials previously told Breitbart Texas that cartels exploit these families and the unaccompanied children in order to tie up Border Patrol agents. While the agents are occupied with processing the migrants, cartels will move other migrant groups who seek to avoid apprehension or drug shipments across other border regions.

There is no physical barrier in this segment of the U.S.-Mexico border.
