Sunland Park group.

SUNLAND PARK, N.M. – As large groups of illegal aliens continue to cross through the Lordsburg area near the Antelope Wells Port of Entry, U.S. Border Patrol Agents from the Santa Teresa Station discover a group of over 300 illegal crossers entering at Sunland Park, New Mexico.

On Monday, February 11, 2019, shortly before midnight, Border Patrol Agents working near Mt. Cristo Rey noticed a large group of 311 illegal aliens make their way around the pedestrian fence in Sunland Park and took them in to custody. Though this trend has been a constant in the Antelope Wells area of New Mexico, this is the first large group that has been encountered in this area this fiscal year. As with the previous groups encountered in Antelope Wells, this group is comprised primarily of Central American families and unaccompanied juveniles. The group was transported to the Santa Teresa Border Patrol Station for continued processing.

The Sunland Park group is the second to include more than 300 people on February 11. Earlier in the day Border Patrol agents at Antelope wells apprehended a group of 330 who entered illegally.

The smuggling of large groups within the local communities present various challenges to ensure criminals do not use these tactics to exploit vulnerabilities. Criminal organizations continue to search for ways to shift Border Patrol resources from one area in hopes of creating gaps in coverage to move drugs and criminals through other areas. Agents remain ever vigilante to counter those efforts and provide the border security that is paramount for our citizens.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation’s borders at and between official ports of entry. CBP is charged with securing the borders of the United States while enforcing hundreds of laws and facilitating lawful trade and travel.

    A double wall with 200′ of anti personnel mines and auto gun sentinels between worked miracles containing east germans 40 years ago – a modern day equivalent should be able to debar foreigners from illegal entry into the USA today.

    but then again, a wall asserting your territorial integrity as a sovereign nation is “offensive” to the democrat leadership and, more importantly, a physical wall cannot be shut down over night with the stroke a pen the day the next democrat president takes office. and that’s wy we can’t have it and anyone thinking othewise is racist! RACIST! RAAAAACIST!!!!

        Yeah because if a soldier points his rifle at you and shouts “Stop!”, a terrible misunderstanding might ensue, because that may sound just like “Please come to my house and stick your penis in my 9 year old daughters vagina” in Spanish. That is a very legitimate concern, thank you for adding this valuable perspective!
