Border agents arrest more than 115 illegal migrants Monday near Van Horn


VAN HORN, Texas (Nexstar)- Border agents stationed in Van Horn arrested more than 115 illegal migrants Monday. 

With help from the Texas Department of Public Safety aircrew, agents found multiple people dressed in camouflage trying to hide themselves amid the rugged terrain. 

Illegal migrants are turned over for processing and deportation, but those living in the area are calling for Governor Abbott to step in. One Facebook user wrote, “When is our Governor going to get involved and help shut down this invasion? Yesterday 206 in Hildago IN ONE GROUP!”

Big Bend Sector agents are responding to multiple calls for rescue from illegal migrants in distress, and one man was found dead just three days ago.
