BIG BEND, Texas (Nexstar)- Customs and Border Protection agents in the Big Bend area continue to see an increase in human smuggling.
Agents in Presidio, working closely with Homeland Security and the Presidio Police Department, arrested multiple people in a “stash” house Tuesday.
Additional arrests were made after a traffic stop revealed several illegal migrants who had smuggled into the area.
Multiple agencies in the Big Bend region are working tirelessly to address the crisis at the border. Agents say the heat and terrain pose an increasing danger to illegal migrants as summer approaches.
