Border Patrol Apprehends Two Groups of Over 100 Illegals within 72 hours

IMPERIAL BEACH, Calif. — San Diego Sector (SDC) Border Patrol agents from the Imperial Beach Station arrested two separate groups of over 100 migrants totaling 224 people.

The first incident occurred July 23, at approximately 6:40 p.m., when agents encountered a group of 123 migrants who illegally crossed into the U.S. near Imperial Beach.  This is the second largest group encountered by agents in San Diego this fiscal year. The largest group was in November, which also took place in Imperial Beach and consisted of 144 people.

The second incident occurred on July 26, at approximately 1:45 a.m., when agents encountered a group of 101 migrants who illegally entered the U.S. through a drainage tube at the international boundary near Imperial Beach.  Smugglers cut the drainage tube bars utilizing a blow torch, which opened a pathway for the migrants to cross into the U.S.

“I am proud of the effort our agents do daily in continuing to secure the Border, especially considering encounters at the border have been increasing for the past two years,” said San Diego Sector Chief Patrol Agent Aaron Heitke.

All individuals were transported to a nearby station where they were medically evaluated and cleared by medical personnel.  It was determined that the groups comprised of 167 single adults and 57 family unit members.

The two groups totaling 224 individuals were determined to be citizens of the following 13 countries:

•    Brazil (183)
•    Sierra Leon (4)
•    Peru (4)
•    Nepal (4)
•    Nicaragua (2)
•    Nigeria (2)
•    Haiti (2)
•    Gambia (1)
•    India (1)
•    Cuba (3)
•    Romanians (8)
•    Colombians (8)
•    Mexicans (2)

With 13 different countries consisting of mostly non-Spanish speaking migrants, San Diego Sector must resource out for translation support, which can strain the case-work process.

  1. The liberal states,cities & towns who promote this should be supporting this & the people out of their OWN pocket. If their willing to support all the already rich cartels that are supporting slave trading and all the negative things that go along with this problem(drugs,illegal guns,under age children & more) then let them support it out of their own pocket not the peoples.
