U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Eagle Pass in Station Texas arrested 10 illegal aliens from Bangladesh after the subjects made illegal entry into the United States according to a statement from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
“Our Border Patrol agents face unique challenges every day and may encounter persons from different regions of the world. I commend them for their vigilance and commitment to safeguard our nation’s borders,” said Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Felix Chavez.
In the early morning of Aug. 20, agents apprehended 10 people after the subjects made illegal entry into the United States. All subjects were transported to the Eagle Pass South Border Patrol Station and processed per U.S. Customs and Border Protection guidelines.
