Border Patrol agents have discovered nearly two dozen illegal aliens inside water drainage systems in multiple Texas cities in recent days, according to reports.
Migrants were caught moving through sewers in Hidalgo and Brownsville this week, and some were pulled through manholes onto the street.Get back in the game, jump on our major sale at the store now!
“NOT SO SECRET passages uncovered in two south Texas cities,” Rio Grande Valley Chief Patrol Agent Brian Hastings tweeted on Wednesday.
“Smugglers continue to use dangerous tactics to move migrants across the border.”
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) says agents discovered footprints leading to a drainage pipe in Brownsville on Tuesday.
“The Brownsville Fire Department was requested and responded to assist. Three migrants were apprehended as they exited the drainage system,” CBP explained in a statement.
The next day, agents from McAllen Border Patrol Station were informed about “suspected migrants traversing the drainage system in Hidalgo.”
“Agents responded to investigate and requested assistance from the Hidalgo Police Department and Texas Department of Public Safety,” CBP said.
Agents caught 20 migrants who had illegally entered the U.S. via the drainage system.
Just two weeks ago, additional illegals were captured in sewer systems in Hidalgo and Brownsville, as well.
