U.S. Border Patrol agents and Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) deputies dismantled a stash house operation in the Rio Grande Valley.
On Tuesday evening, agents assigned to the Rio Grande Valley Special Operations Detachment, along with the deputies from the HCSO identified a stash house operating out of a residence in Donna, Texas. Inside the house, agents and deputies discovered 36 illegal aliens from the countries of Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala.
The Border Patrol is processing all subjects accordingly.
The Rio Grande Valley Sector currently has multiple campaigns focused on rescues and danger awareness, such as “Operation Big Rig” and “No Se Arriesgue” to combat smuggling and ultimately save lives.
