Officials Announce New Top 10 For “Se Busca Información Initiative”

Release Date: 
January 26, 2021

EDINBURG, Texas — The Border Patrol’s Rio Grande Valley Sector in collaboration with the Mexican State of Tamaulipas, identified 10 new suspects targeted under the Se Busca Información initiative. The “Se Busca” initiative was implemented to locate, disrupt and displace members of criminal organizations that present threats to the region while encouraging the public to assist in removing criminals from our communities. 

RGV Sector Chief Patrol Agent Brian Hastings and Tamaulipas Governor Francisco Garcia Cabeza de Vaca announced the continuation of the bi-national initiative in a recorded video message. Last year’s top ten announcement was made at a press event held at the Hidalgo Port of Entry. This year, because of COVID restrictions, officials decided to forego a public gathering and instead agreed to produce videos that will be shared online and through social media platforms.

Billboards, posters, flyers, and videos of the top ten Se Busca targets will be displayed in heavily traveled locations throughout the region. Along with the pictures of the targets, two phone numbers are listed allowing the public to provide anonymous tips to assist in the arrest of these individuals.

The public is encouraged to take a stand against crime in their communities and report suspicious activity at 800-863-9382.
