Presidio County Sheriff’s deputies find 13 illegal migrants during traffic stop


MARFA, Texas (Nexstar)- Presidio County Sheriff’s Deputies found a group of thirteen undocumented migrants near Marfa Wednesday. 

Around 1:30 p.m. on FM 2810 just south of Marfa, deputies stopped a black Chevrolet Suburban for failing to stay in a single lane. 

Inside the vehicle, law enforcement found 12 men and one woman who had entered the US illegally.

Marfa Police assisted with the stop and all illegal migrants haven been referred to Customs and Border Protection for processing and deportation. 

The Presidio County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post Presidio County continues to be a “gateway” for illegal migrants and that communication between area agencies is a key factor in being able to stop, detain and deport those who cross the border illegally.
