Around 200 illegal immigrants including at least 40 unaccompanied minors were apprehended in Mission, Texas after being smuggled into the U.S., according to border officials.

The illegal immigrants were accompanied across the border by “human smugglers,” according to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Rio Grande Valley Chief Patrol Agent Brian Hastings. It was around 43 degrees in Mission, Texas, Wednesday night at 8 p.m. CST when Hastings tweeted about the apprehensions, according to weather tracker Local Conditions.

“Nobody comes across that river without a smuggler. Nobody just walks up to the bridge and goes across. A smuggler put them in a raft and paddled them across, probably told them to go up to that road, take a left until you walk into an agent,” CBP Public Affairs Officer Rod Kise told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Most of the illegal immigrants were likely transferred from CBP into Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody, though it is unknown whether the illegal immigrants were deported or released into the interior of the U.S. since that is determined on a case-by-case basis, Kise told the DCNF

It was not clear where the 44 unaccompanied minors will be held, though they will be processed at a Border Patrol facility, Border Patrol Special Operations Supervisor Christian Alvarez told the DCNF.

“The UAC’s [unaccompanied alien child] will be processed accordingly in one of our processing centers,” Kise told the DCNF.

ICE declined to say whether any of the illegal immigrants apprehended by CBP were in their custody, though a spokesperson said the agency makes custody determinations on a case-by-case basis.

The Biden administration plans on opening a private overflow facility to hold unaccompanied minors as their immigration cases are processed around three hours from where the illegal immigrants were apprehended, the DCNF reported.

Turn them around and send them back, then spread the word that they will get sent back, maybe that will deter them.

Unfortunately, now that Senile Joe and the socialist party are in charge, that’s not going to happen. Their idea of “immigration reform” is to tear down the border and let everyone in, and while they’re at it, make sure that law abiding citizens (and LAWFUL residents) are disarmed so as to be unable to protect themselves from all the criminal elements coming in. What we should be doing is adopting immigration rules more like what Mexico and Australia have.
