Laredo Sector Border Patrol Agents Assist in the Arrest of 70 Illegal Aliens in a Stash House

Release Date: 
April 7, 2018

LAREDO, Texas – On April 6, 2018, Border Patrol Agents responded to a request for assistance from the Laredo Police Department regarding multiple subjects in a stash house located at 4504 Corrada Avenue in south Laredo, Texas.  A total of 70 illegal aliens which included men, women and children were found inside the residence.  The subjects were determined to be from the countries of Guatemala, Mexico, El Salvador, Brazil, Romania and Honduras.  Record checks will be done on all subjects and will be processed accordingly.  Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) has the lead in the investigation.

 “The deplorable conditions in which these individuals were found demonstrates how ruthless these smuggling organizations are and how they view these people as mere commodities,” said Assistant Chief Patrol Agent Gabriel Acosta.  

To report suspicious activity such as alien and/or drug smuggling, contact the Laredo Sector Border Patrol toll free telephone number at 1-800-343-1994.  All people apprehended by the Border Patrol undergo criminal history checks using biometrics to ensure their criminal histories are positively identified.
