Laredo Sector Border Patrol Apprehends 17 Illegal Aliens East of Hebbronville, Texas

Release Date: 
November 7, 2018

LAREDO, Texas – U.S. Border Patrol agents from the Hebbronville Station apprehended 17 illegal aliens in the brush east of Hebbronville, Texas. 

On the morning of November 6, agents encountered a vehicle at the intersection of County Roads 254 and 256.  Before the agents could make contact, the driver of the vehicle pulled over and absconded.  The agents approached the vehicle and found no other passengers. 

A search of the area resulted in the agents locating a possible drop-off point with foot sign leading into the brush.  The agents followed the foot sign until they found and arrested 17 illegal aliens. 

The nationalities of the aliens were two from El Salvador, two from Mexico, and 13 from Guatemala, to include an unaccompanied juvenile.      

The driver was not located.  The vehicle was seized by U.S. Border Patrol.
