SEVERAL ARRESTED IN FREEZING TEMPERATURES BY BORDER PATROL AGENTS
With temperatures falling below freezing levels in Texas, U.S. Border Patrol agents continue to locate and rescue undocumented immigrants from the dangerous elements.
During the very early morning of February 17, 2021 agents rendered aid to seven lost individuals that were located south of Laredo, Texas after an individual from the group called Webb County 911 Emergency Services.
The individuals stated they were lost and in distress due to the rainy conditions and temperatures that were near 31 degrees Fahrenheit with a wind chill factor of 23 degrees. Agents were able to communicate with the caller and quickly locate the group. The seven individuals were medically screened in the field and determined to be in good health.
All of the rescued individuals were illegally in the United States and are from the countries of Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador.
