Laredo Sector Border Patrol Agents Rescue Illegal Aliens

Release Date: 
November 7, 2017

LAREDO, Texas – On November 5, 2017, Border Patrol agents rescued four illegal aliens in a ranch near Hebbronville, Texas.  The subjects had resorted to calling 911 for assistance after they became lost in the brush.  Border Patrol agents were able to locate and rescue the lost subjects.  The four illegal aliens were found in good health and determined to be from the countries of Mexico and Guatemala.

The second event took place on November 6, 2017, after Border Patrol agents rescued two illegal aliens in a ranch near Freer, Texas.  The subjects had called 911 after they became lost in the brush and were later found by Border Patrol agents.  The two illegal aliens were found in good health and were determined to be from the country of Mexico.

The Laredo Sector Border Patrol will continue to warn against the dangers of people crossing illegally into the United States through dangerous environmental conditions.  Our Border Safety Initiative (BSI) is a humanitarian, bi-national strategy designed to reduce illegal alien deaths, educate and inform potential illegal aliens of the dangers and hazards of crossing the border illegally, and to respond to those who are in life-threatening situations.
