LAREDO, Texas – On June 12, 2018, Laredo Sector Border Patrol Agents coordinated with the Webb County Sheriff’s Office in an enforcement action which resulted in the arrest of 62 illegal aliens from a stash house in Laredo, Texas. The incident transpired after agents received information that a large number of illegal aliens were being held at a residence waiting to be transported into the interior of the United States. The illegal aliens were determined to be from the countries of Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. All subjects were processed accordingly.
This enforcement action demonstrates the United States Border Patrol's commitment to work with the Webb County Sheriff’s Office and other law enforcement partners to disrupt illicit activity, deny criminal organizations the ability to operate, and protect human life,” said Laredo Sector Assistant Chief Patrol Agent Jose Martinez.
