LAREDO, Texas - In a collaborative effort between Air and Marine Operations and U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Laredo West and Carrizo Springs Station, 63 undocumented immigrants were arrested in the brush west of Laredo.

The incident occurred on Thursday when agents responded to a report of possible human smuggling activity inside a private ranch and began to follow tracks. Subsequently, after approximately a three-hour search, agents encountered the large group of undocumented immigrants.

A total of 63 subjects were detained and an immigration inspection revealed that they were all undocumented immigrants.

All 63 undocumented immigrants were found in good health and were from the countries of Ecuador, Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala and Mexico. All subjects were transported to the Laredo West Station and processed accordingly.
