Border Patrol Rescues Two Near Falfurrias

FALFURRIAS–The Brooks County Sheriff’s Department received a 9-1-1 call today from two undocumented immigrants lost near a ranch south of Falfurrias.

Officers lost contact with them so they called the Border Patrol who went looking for the two and found them. They weren’t hurt and refused medical treatment. They were taken to the Falfurrias Office to face deportation.

The Border Patrol reports this is the first rescue of the new fiscal year in the Rio Grande Valley Sector. Last year, they rescued 133 immigrants for an area that stretches from the border to Falfurrias.
