Del Rio Sector Border Patrol rescues 43 immigrants

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Hours after dozens of immigrants were found in the back of an 18 wheeler in San Antonio, many of them dead or near death, another human smuggling attempt was uncovered in Uvalde.

The US Border Patrol Del Rio Sector reports agents and K-9 units found 43 immigrants who had been smuggled across the border.

The agency posted on their Facebook page that even after Monday’s deadly discovery in San Antonio, smugglers are still using these tactics and showing no regard for human life.

No word on whether or not any of the immigrants found in Uvalde showed any signs of needing medical attention.
