Federal agents arrested a group of 102 illegal aliens that had used rafts to cross into Texas.
The large-scale arrest took place on Tuesday morning near the border community of Fronton when U.S. Border Patrol agents spotted a group of about 80 illegal aliens crossing the Rio Grande using rafts, information provided to Breitbart Texas by Border Patrol officials revealed.
Moments after the first group crossed, agents spotted a second large group crossing the river in rafts. The illegal aliens were meeting up in a wooded area with the first group. Border Patrol agents responded in large numbers to the area and were aided by helicopters from U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Texas Department of Public Safety in order to stop the smuggling effort.
