The images of three armed men with rifles escorting a mother and child were captured by Border Patrol agents. A camera recorded them getting an armed escort to the international boundary near Lukeville earlier this month.
The mother and 8-year-old son appeared to have been dropped off at the vehicle barrier which separates Mexico from the United States.
Lukeville has been a favorite area for smugglers, who drop off large groups of migrants who enter the country illegally.
The woman and her son are from Central America.
