As a Border Patrol agent you never know what is going to happen. Just like the incident below ⬇️⬇️⬇️

Thanks to a CBP Air and Marine Operations air asset on patrol in La Joya, Texas, they notified agents of what they observed from above.

This morning, #USBP agents rescued two people trying to stay afloat in the swift waters of the Rio Grande river after the raft they were in capsized. Smugglers just push them across disregarding the dangers and make no attempt to help them.

Over the last few days, agents have arrested 2 men with sexual related criminal history.

Both men were identified as Mexican nationals. One with an arrest in Illinois and the other in North Carolina.

The man pictured below was apprehended with the assistance of the recently launched small Unmanned Aircraft Systems program.

See below ⬇️⬇️⬇️

Another busy week for agents is in the books. See below⬇️⬇️⬇️

This week, RGV #USBP agents intercepted four drug smuggling attempts resulting in the seizure of over 2200 lbs of marijuana and 40 lbs of meth. The drugs are worth more than $3 million dollars.

As we approach 10 PM this evening, McAllen agents located and arrested 9 people shortly after rafting across the Rio Grande.

This is another example of Border Patrol agents and CBP officers working hard to keep the border safe.

Human smugglers are avoiding the New Border Wall being built in Hidalgo and Mission, Texas due to the difficulty associated with breaching it.

It takes team work in order to effectively get the job done as the picture shows.

This happened an hour ago near a nature preserve in Mission, Texas.

Yesterday, agents shutdown two more human smuggling stash houses in the RGV. One is La Grulla and the second in Donna, Texas. See below ⬇️⬇️⬇️

RGV #USBP agents continue to work closely with local, state & federal authorities to dismantle criminal organizations operating in local neighborhoods. Yesterday, joint efforts led to the arrest of over 40 illegal aliens in two stash houses.

This could have ended tragically.

There are so many things that can go wrong when being rafted across the Rio Grande. See the story below⬇️⬇️⬇️

Saturday night, agents encountered several unaccompanied children including a 7 month old traveling with his 13 yr. old brother. The two were abandoned by their mother weeks ago & left with smugglers. No parent should place their children at the mercy of criminals.

DID YOU KNOW: #USBP K-9’s not only work with with their handlers but also reside with them. The responsibility of caring for the dog doesn’t end after a shift, it continues at home.

The strong bond between a dog and their handler is like no other. They are more than a working dog, they are family.

Human smugglers disregard the potential health risks associated with placing several people in confined spaces.

Take a close look in how these people are treated. The second picture is what they had to resort to because there was no running water.

Yesterday, #RGV agents shut down four stash houses and arrested nearly 100 illegal aliens. Many of them found in cramped quarters with no PPE.

The following picture shows a ladder. This is an example of what smugglers are having to resort to right now in Hidalgo, Texas. Agents and officers went 6 for 6 in this unsuccessful attempt.

As of late, this area had been avoided by smugglers due to the heavy law enforcement presence.

Before the ongoing construction of the nearby towering NEW BORDER WALL, countless human smuggling attempts would have been made by now. As of late, the script has been turned upside down as those attempts have dwindled. Line agents will tell you it's a night and day difference.

10/21/2020

Since it's recent arrival to the RGV, this program has simply been an outstanding asset in the fight against transnational criminal organizations operating along the Rio Grande.

See what it's done in the last few days.⬇️⬇️⬇️

Since Saturday, RGV agents apprehended 133 illegal aliens and discovered 121 lbs of marijuana with the assistance of aerial technology.
This innovative technology has significantly contributed to the interdiction of illegal aliens & illegal contraband.

Since the programs inception, the RGV sUAS program has been credited with assisting agents in the apprehension of more than 2700 subjects, and in the seizure of more than 2400 lbs of marijuana.

RGV Sector has 14 rescue beacons strategically deployed in areas where they have the most impact on rescue and enforcement efforts.

See the latest addition to the never ending effort by #USBP to prevent the loss of life. See below ⬇️

An increase in 911 calls from lost immigrants and tourists led RGV #USBP agents to team up with @USFWS to deploy rescue beacons at La Sal Del Rey Wildlife Refuge near San Manuel, TX. These rescue beacons will assist agents promptly locate people in distress.

Great job by RGC agents in capturing 2 more career criminals and keeping you safe.

In the first 20 days of October, RGV agents have arrested 11 convicted sex offenders. See who they arrested.

Rio Grande City #USBP agents arrest two criminal aliens with long rap sheets. One subject has convictions for indecency with a child, DWI, and drug possession. The other has multiple arrests to include a conviction for aggravated sexual assault.

This happened within the last hour.

What you see here is a group of people that were apprehended after a smuggler rafted them across the Rio Grande.

The current infrastructure (wall, technology) slowed them down enough for our agents to respond from their assigned areas.

So you might hear some people say, "walls don't work" but agents will tell you otherwise. The proof is in the picture.

Amazing team work by our frontline agents.

Over the weekend agents seized nearly $2.5 million dollars worth of drugs.

RGV agents discover over 65 lbs of meth after a K-9 alert at the Falfurrias checkpoint. Additionally, Harlingen agents seized 377 lbs of marijuana abandoned by smugglers in Los Indios, TX.

As an agent, you don't know exactly who you are dealing with until they are taken to the station for processing.

Look who they found over the weekend.

The other criminal not pictured has a previous conviction in Arkansas for sexual assault and was sent to prison for 3 years.

Early this morning, Brownsville agents working near the Rio Grande found four children ages 7,6,4 and 4 walking along the river levee after a human smuggler abandoned them.

The children were shivering and their clothes were wet when agents found them before placing them in their service vehicles to provide warmth.

The children were transported to the station where they were given dry clothes, food, and evaluated by medical staff.

The children, two sets of siblings are from El Salvador and Honduras. The children had names and U.S. phone numbers written on their clothes.

Smugglers often put people in dangerous situations. See an example of that below.

A man was discovered inside the toolbox of a pickup truck during a failed smuggling attempt after a human smuggler drove through a fence and left the truck in a ranch near San Manuel, TX. Since Tuesday, agents foiled five human smuggling attempts and arrested 40 illegal aliens.

Drug smugglers remain active in the RGV. This weekend, #USBP agents thwarted three drug smuggling attempts resulting in the seizure of more than 400 lbs of marijuana, 15 lbs of meth, and over 2 lbs of heroin. The drugs are worth more than $900K

I would like to let you know your work and dedication is appreciated by my family and me
1. He PROMISED America that he would release his taxes after his audit was finished. HE LIED! 2. He PROMISED you and me numerous times that Mexico would pay for the Wall, not Americans, not higher tariffs, not surcharges on Central Americans working in the U.S., not diverting military funding to it! 3. He is OUR employee, not the other way around. We do not live in a dictatorship. Just as many financial businesses may demand to see credit ratings of prospective employees and some won’t hire you if you have a record of bouncing checks, the American people deserve the same openness from our most important employee in our country. 4. Time and time again Trump has claimed to be the most transparent and open President ever. Draining the swamp requires this transparency. Either put up or STFU! What does he have to hide? And why are some of YOU putting Party ahead of our Country by not demanding openness. If roles were reversed and it was Clinton or Biden or Sanders you would be screaming bloody murder that they must be beholden to either Iran or Ukraine or Venezuela, etc. if they promised to release their taxes & have been fighting in court ever since to prevent that. Don’t even try to deny it.
