HEBBRONVILLE, Texas –U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to Hebbronville Station rescued three illegal aliens at a ranch near Hebbronville, Texas.

On May 17, 2018 Jim Hogg County Sheriff’s deputies relayed to agents a 911 call regarding three lost aliens. Agents from the Hebbronville Station were dispatched to the general location and shortly thereafter encountered the illegal aliens. Agents found the illegal aliens to be in good health and they did not require further medical attention. The three illegal aliens were discovered to be male Honduran nationals and were transported for processing and removal.
