Authorities processed the groups, reporting 283 migrants that included 44 family members, 58 unaccompanied children, and 181 single adults.

“Identifying and classifying who and what enters our country among these large groups of migrants and others will always be a primary task,” stated RGV Sector Chief Patrol Agent Gloria I. Chavez.
