A group of nearly 300 illegal immigrants – comprised mostly of family units and unaccompanied minors – was apprehended after crossing the U.S.-Mexico border in the Rio Grande Valley earlier this week.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection revealed Wednesday that agents working near Granjeno, Texas responded to reports of a large group of suspected illegal immigrants walking toward a river levee.

Upon arrival, agents said they found 289 illegal immigrants crossing the river levee from Mexico – making it the largest group they’ve encountered in the area so far this year.

Agents said, including this group, they had detained more than 1,000 illegal immigrants in the Rio Grande Valley sector in 24 hours.

The latest large group comes as CBP has seen an uptick in such groups crossing the border illegally into the U.S.
