Group of Undocumented Immigrants Forces Bridge Closure

Local News

A border bridge shut down due to what federal officials called a possible threat of undocumented migrants.

Officials were concerned a group of undocumented immigrants may try to cross from Mexico without inspection. The Border Patrol deployed its mobile field force as a precaution.

It happened earlier today at the gateway to the America’s bridge, in Laredo. Foot traffic was stopped, and vehicles were diverted to other border crossings.

Tonight, the border has re-opened.
