Del Rio Sector Border Patrol agents arrested a twice deported Honduran man who was reportedly armed with a pistol before his arrest. The agents found him with a group of 15 migrants. This is the third armed human smuggling encounter for Brackettville Station Border Patrol agents in a one-week period. “Illegal aliens possessing a weapon pose great risks to our agents and our communities,” Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz said in a statement provided by Del Rio Sector Border Patrol officials.

“We have seen how dangerous encounters with armed individuals can be for agents.On Monday, an El Paso Sector Border Patrol agent came under fire after he approached a group of migrants near Sunland Park. The agent returned fire, striking and killing the armed migrant, Breitbart Texas reported.

Brackettville Station Border Patrol agents encountered a group of migrants on a ranch near the town of Brackettville, Texas. This area is a known human smuggling route for migrants attempting to circumvent one of the Border Patrol interior checkpoints in the area.

The agents took the group of six Honduran adult males, four Honduran adult females, four Honduran juveniles, and a Mexican adult female into custody after determining them to be illegally present in the U.S., officials stated. The agents conducted a search of the area and found a backpack containing a .22 caliber revolver.An investigation tied the backpack to a 46-year-old Honduran male traveling with the group, officials reported.

The agents transported the group of migrants to the Border Patrol station for processing and a biometric background investigation. During the background checks, the agents learned that the man they identified as traveling with the handgun has an immigration history that included two previous deportations. Those occurred in 2006 and 2007, officials stated.

The Border Patrol agents arrested the Honduran man who now faces federal criminal charges under 8 USC § 922 G-5 – Illegal Alien in Possession of a Firearm. If convicted on the charge, he could face up to five years in federal prison. He could also face federal felony charges for illegal re-entry after removal.The other migrants were processed under CBP guidelines.

On October 27, Brackettville Station Border Patrol agents assisted a Kenney County Sheriff’s Office deputy who had stopped a vehicle with a group of migrants and a suspected human smuggler, Breitbart Texas reported. During a search of the vehicle, the deputy found a Smith & Wesson 9mm pistol in the driver’s side door pocket. The deputy arrested the driver and a passenger and seized the handgun and vehicle. The agents transported the four illegal immigrants to the Brackettville Station for processing. Officials did not disclose the nationality of the four migrants.

One day earlier, Brackettville Station Border Patrol agents found a second handgun while searching the area of a disrupted human smuggling attempt. During a search of the area, the agents found a black backpack on the ground. A search of the backpack revealed a Glock 26 9mm pistol. Officials report the handgun was fully loaded.

Chief Ortiz said that since the beginning of the new fiscal year on October 1, there were 12 smuggling cases involving guns. This compared to only five for the previous fiscal year, he explained.

CBP Officers Arrest Teen Smuggling 220LBS Of Meth In From Mexico

You have to wonder how a 16-year-old came into possession of this amount of meth. Teenagers aren’t out there making this drug, it’s the cartels. They were most likely using him because he will be tried as a juvenile & escape major prison time. Or the cartels threatened his family if he didn’t do the job.

CALEXICO, Calif. — U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Calexico West port of entry apprehended a 16-year-old boy after finding hundreds of pounds of methamphetamine stashed inside his vehicle on Christmas Eve.

At about 12:30 p.m., on Dec. 24, a CBP officer at the Calexico West port of entry encountered the teenager, a U.S. citizen, driving a 2012 Ford Focus. The CBP officer referred both driver and vehicle for further examination.

A CBP canine team was screening vehicles as they awaited inspection in vehicle secondary when the canine gave a positive alert to the 2012 Ford Focus.

CBP officers utilized the port’s imaging system to screen the vehicle further discovered anomalies in the doors, back seat, quarter panels, rocker panels, and spare tire.

Meth was stashed inside this spare tire and other areas of the teen’s car.

CBP officers removed 205 wrapped packages of methamphetamine weighing 220 pounds. The narcotics carry an estimated street value of $264,444.

The teen was arrested for the alleged narcotic smuggling attempt and turned over to the custody of Homeland Security Investigation agents for further processing.

The teenager was transported to the Imperial County Juvenile Detention Center to await arraignment.

CBP seized the narcotics and vehicle.

It’s very dangerous out there for the men & women of the Border Patrol. Smugglers tied to cartels have no problem attacking them.

TUCSON, Ariz. – Monday afternoon, an individual driving a 2014 Ford Taurus fired shots at U.S. Border Patrol agents at an immigration checkpoint south of Casa Grande.

At approximately 2:40 p.m., the vehicle failed to yield to Tucson Sector agents working the immigration checkpoint at mile marker 26 on Federal Route 15. Gunshots were fired from the vehicle as it led agents on a high-speed chase toward Interstate 10.

With the aid of the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office and Arizona Department of Public Safety, the vehicle was stopped on I-10 near Casa Grande. No further shots were fired, and no injuries were reported at the scene.

“This situation is a stark reminder of the extreme danger law enforcement faces and how important it is we partner together to keep communities safe,” stated Tucson Sector Border Patrol Chief Roy Villareal. “I want to thank the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office and Arizona DPS for their assistance. This pursuit put many lives at risk. With our partners’ help it ended safely.”

This was the sixth assault on a Tucson Sector Border Patrol agent since October 1, 2019.

The U.S. citizen driver was arrested for human smuggling and can still face additional charges related to this incident. The two Mexican nationals discovered in the vehicle’s trunk face charges for immigration violations.

The incident remains under investigation by the FBI and Homeland Security Investigations.
