Texas National Guardsmen and Border Patrol agents in the Del Rio Sector spent Father’s Day apprehending and processing a group of more than 400 migrants. The massive migrants who crossed the border near Normandy (Texas) continued to increase in number on Sunday morning.
Breitbart Texas observed a large migrant group being apprehended and processed in Normandy on Sunday morning — about 20 miles north of Eagle Pass, Texas. The number of migrants in the group grew to over 400.
Breitbart observed the group being detained by soldiers with the Texas National Guard and a local sheriff’s deputy while a single Border Patrol agent began separating the migrants by nationality. Photographs show that only one bus was available for transportation.
Breitbart Texas reported that agents arrested at least eight groups comprising almost 1,800 migrants on Friday and Saturday. Chief Patrol Agent Jason D. Owens said that nearly half of large migrant-group apprehensions are made in the Del Rio Sector.
“Groups of 100 are bad, now we are seeing groups over 200, 300, & even over 400!” Chief Owens tweeted. “In the past 48 hours, agents encountered 8 groups totaling 1,780 migrants!”
The group was located near Normandy in Texas and approximately 500 migrants were included.
According to the Southwest Land Border Encounters report last week, Del Rio Sector agents arrested 44,388 (or the 222.656 migrants) taken into custody at the southwest border of Mexico in May.
