Border Patrol agents assigned to the Laredo Sector in South Texas arrested seven Bangladesh nationals after they attempted to illegally enter the U.S. from Mexico. Agents in this sector lead the nation in the arrest of Bangladesh nationals with 122 so far this year.

On March 14 and 15, agents patrolling along the Rio Grande River near Laredo stopped seven illegal immigrants attempting to cross the border in two separate incidents. Further investigation in both cases revealed the individuals were Bangladesh nationals.

Border Patrol officials stated that 122 Bangladesh nationals have been arrested in the Laredo Sector this fiscal year. Other officials said that number could be much higher.

“Many of these people from Bangladesh will claim to be unaccompanied alien minors when they are captured by our agents,” Garza explained. “At that point, they are turned over to immigration officials for processing under the existing catch and release programs for minors.”

“When, during medical and dental examinations, immigration officers determine these people are actually adults, they are issued a Notice to Appear (NTA) and released,” Agent Garza explained.

Obviously, these fine upstanding brain surgeons-to-be will most certainly comply with the Notice To Appear.

It doesn't surprise me that they come across the river, we used to see commercials with them standing on their houses or sitting on water buffalo during the floods, we dropped pallets of rice on them. They are drawn to muddy swirling water.
