NEW YORK (FOX5NY) - U.S. border patrol agents helped local police in Texas round up 34 people living in a stash house in a residential neighborhood.
It happened in Roma, Texas.
The Roma Police Department received information of a possible stash house operating and contacted the Rio Grande City Border Patrol Station for assistance as they conducted a welfare check at the house.
Upon arrival, agents and officers found a total of 34 illegal aliens comprised of men and women from the countries of Guatemala, Mexico and Honduras. As agents prepared to take them for processing, a Guatemalan woman fainted and subsequently transported to a hospital for evaluation.
The Border Patrol is processing all subjects accordingly.
The Rio Grande Valley Sector says it has multiple campaigns focused on rescues and danger awareness, such as "Operation Big Rig" and "No Se Arriesgue" to combat smuggling and ultimately save lives.
