A group of 704 migrants were arrested Thursday at Eagle Pass, after crossing the Rio Grande from Mexico into Texas, United States.
The Border Patrol (CBP) said in a statement that agents from Del Rio Sector discovered the migrants, shortly after they made the unauthorized incursion.
The group was made up of 535 Cubans, 74 Nicaraguans, 49 Colombians, 31 Dominicans, nine Peruvians, three Ecuadorians, and three Mexicans. Among them were 12 unaccompanied children. All of them were taken to the nearest treatment center.
A legal battle is currently taking place in the United States between the administration of President Joe Biden, in its intention to demolish Title 42, which enables border agents to turn back immigrants seeking asylum, and federal judges. They insist on maintaining the procedure He has applied since March 2020 under the Republican Donald Trump administration.
CBP reports that since the current fiscal year, which began on October 1, the Del Rio Sector collects nearly 90% of all large collections detected by the United States Border Patrol in the country.
