Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Sector agents recently encountered three large groups of migrants.

Friday morning, Rio Grande City Border Patrol Station agents observed a large group of migrants, composed of mostly families, walking north from the Rio Grande in La Grulla, Texas. The group of migrants included 131 family members, 19 unaccompanied children, and 13 single adults. The migrants are from Central America with 105 migrants being citizens of Guatemala.

Saturday morning, McAllen Border Patrol Station (MCS) agents working in La Joya, Texas, encountered a group of 100 migrants after they illegally entered the United States. The group consisted of 90 family members and 10 single adults. The migrants are from Central America as well as Ecuador and Venezuela. There were no unaccompanied migrant children in this group.

Sunday morning, MCS agents observed a large group of migrants enter the United States through Mission, Texas. The group was made up of 121 family members, three single adults, and two unaccompanied children. The migrants are from Central American countries, including Belize.
