Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Jason D. Owens tweeted a series of photos showing large groups of migrants continuing to cross into the U.S. from Mexico.
130+ in 1 group. Part of the 900+ arrests DRT had for the day (men, women, children… from around the world). Think of the logistics and resources needed to process & care for that population

The human smugglers continue to cross the migrants in large groups in order to tie up Border Patrol resources. Many of the migrants come from a wide range of countries. On December 7, agents found four migrants from Tajikistan embedded with a group of migrants.
A small west Texas town, a big impact to national security.
Yesterday alone, the Del Rio Sector arrested more than 900 illegal border crossers, including 4 from Tajikistan. The U.S. Border Patrol is on the frontline of this country’s defense. Our job is to keep you safe! pic.twitter.com/8Tj1BBCy1I

Don’t forget our mission is Border Security.
As the influx of illegal border crossers continues, agents continue to save lives, disrupt smuggling attempts & stop dangerous criminals.

The surge of migrants in December forced Border Patrol officials in eight of the nine southwest border sectors to warehouse them in conditions that exceed COVID-19 capacity guidelines, Breitbart Texas' Randy Clark reported.
Callous human smugglers continue to put lives in danger, not only in the U.S., but in Mexico. A tractor-trailer loaded with more than 100 mostly Central American migrants overturned on December 8, killing at least 53 migrants.
Never trust a criminal smuggler!
You see danger, smugglers see opportunity. No matter your age, sex, religion, or race, they will abandon you without hesitation, leaving you to fend for yourself in terrible conditions. That is how people have died. pic.twitter.com/EJFtD2Dv5C
