Groups of women and children are showing up at the border in Laredo, Texas, and seeking out Border Patrol agents to turn themselves in. U.S. authorities are releasing them into Texas. The numbers and methods of the illegal entries are reminiscent of the beginnings of the 2014 border crisis, according to Border Patrol agent Hector Garza. He spoke to Breitbart Texas in his role as National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) Local 2455 President.
“We are seeing five to ten groups per day and they usually consist of three to five individuals,” Agent Garza said in an exclusive interview with Breitbart Texas. “This is a significant uptick and appears to be the beginning of an influx. They are mostly Honduran.”
Though both the numbers of groups and the numbers within the groups are often greater in the Rio Grande Valley Sector (RGV), the fact that they are showing up in the Laredo Sector is significant, largely due to differences in the transnational criminal organizations that control immediately south of the two sectors–and that control the flow of narcotics and human smuggling within those sectors on U.S. soil.
