At approximately 8:40 a.m. agents conducting routine patrol operations in Quemado, encountered a group of 90 people who had recently crossed the Rio Grande River. All of the people in the group were Honduran nationals, many of whom were women and children ranging from 1 to 17 years of age. The group surrendered to the arresting agents without incident.  A transport bus and several support units responded to the area to assist in transporting the group to the Eagle Pass South Station for processing.

“Although groups of this size, until recently, have been uncommon in the Del Rio area, our agents are encountering larger groups of immigrants with women and young children,” said Del Rio Sector Acting Chief Patrol Agent Matthew J. Hudak. “Our highest priority will always be the safety of all people involved, no matter the situation. However, it is a criminal offense to enter the United States at a place other than a designated port of entry. Those who choose to enter illegally will be arrested and handled accordingly.”

Upon arrival, a woman in the group was experiencing abdominal pain and stated that she was pregnant. She was rushed to Fort Duncan Regional Medical Center where she went into labor and gave birth.
