“At approximately 10:10 p.m., emergency services in Mexico relayed a phone call to the Yuma Sector Operations Center from a group lost in the desert. The caller reported that the group was comprised of eight adults and nine juveniles. Yuma Station agents deployed to the area in search of the 17 lost individuals,” US Customs and Border Protection said in a press release.
“At 11:30 p.m., agents located the illegal aliens approximately 30 miles east of San Luis within the bombing range area of operations. The individuals were found to be in good health and did not require medical attention. The group was then transported to Yuma Station where they received food, water, and access to care,” CBP stated.
“This particular area is especially dangerous for illegal border crossers due to the remoteness of the location,” said Yuma Sector Chief Patrol Agent Anthony J. Porvaznik. “In addition to the complete lack of adequate infrastructure to stop this occurrence, illegal aliens must contend with the summer heat and the dangers of military training in the area.”
Over 100,000 illegal aliens a month are crossing into the US and we have no idea who they are or what kind of diseases they have.
President Trump said on Monday evening in a pair of tweets that ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] will begin the process of removing millions illegal aliens who have illicitly entered the US.
