3 large groups of migrants in as many days cross the Arizona border sector

Tucson area Border Patrol agents encountered three large groups of migrants who crossed illegally over the weekend and Monday. The encounters led to the arrest of around 229 people, including an 11-month-old baby.

Border Patrol agents at Ajo Station encountered two large groups of migrants over the weekend, according to a tweet from Tucson Area Chief Patrol Agent John R. Modlin. The groups included 142 Cuban nationals, 29 Brazilians and three citizens of the Dominican Republic.

The groups demanded that large numbers of Border Patrol agents be pulled from the line to transport, process and care for the migrants. Modlin reported that the group contained single adults and family units.

The trend continued on Monday when Ajo station agents encountered the third major group in as many days, Modlin tweeted. This group was made up of one citizen of the Dominican Republic, four Colombian nationals and 51 Cuban citizens, Modlin reported. He said there were ten children in the group, including an 11-month-old.

A few days earlier, an agent in the Tucson area had to transport a migrant woman out of the desert near Douglas, Arizona. Officers found the woman suffering from heat exhaustion in the desert.

“The officer selflessly carried her over half a mile and provided medical care until an ambulance arrived,” Modlin said.
