A combined 193 illegal alien adults and children were encountered by Border Patrol agents patrolling along the border several miles west of Arizona’s Port of Lukeville on Sunday.
In the first incident, 102 people surrendered to Ajo Station Border Patrol agents. About an hour later, agents encountered another 91 illegal aliens in the same area. Both groups were comprised of adults and children, some as young as 1, from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. Agents determined most of the people were traveling as families, but 11 children were unaccompanied.
Agents evaluated the 193 illegal aliens and determined no further medical attention was needed. After transporting everyone to the Ajo Border Patrol Station, they were processed for immigration violations.
