In a joint enforcement action, U.S. Border Patrol agents and the Webb County Attorney’s Office closed down a stash house harboring a large number of illegal immigrants in Laredo, TX.
The incident began during the late evening of July 28, 2020 when agents received a report about a possible stash house. Agents conducted a knock and talk at the residence which resulted in the apprehension of 52 individuals, including three juveniles.
The individuals were in the United States illegally and from the countries of Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. All were taken into custody pending investigation. The identification of this stash house and the arrest of 52 subjects came as a result of teamwork and collaboration between multiple federal, state, and local agencies.
