US and Mexican authorities have announced five suspects charged with trafficking people across the border.

This effort is part of the “Se Busca Información” campaign, an initiative between the Mexican government and the US Border Patrol. They would operate near Del Rio, Texas.

“Smugglers work for opportunistic criminal organizations that have no respect for human life,” said Chief Patrol Officer Jason Owens of the Del Rio area. “Through this initiative, community members on both sides of the border provide us with information about those who endanger the lives of vulnerable families and children.”
