U.S. Border Patrol agents apprehended a large group of undocumented immigrants Monday morning in the town of Quemado, New Mexico which lies just northwest of Eagle Pass, Texas.

Agents conducting routine patrol operations in Quemado encountered a group of 90 people who had recently crossed the Rio Grande River into the United States from Mexico. 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 for arrest processing.

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.
