Border Patrol agents carried out multiple rescues on the Rio Grande during a busy afternoon in South Texas this week, authorities say.
A total of 18 illegal aliens were saved by McAllen Border Patrol Station (MCS) agents in the span of hours on Monday.
A riverine unit on patrol near Mission “spotted spotted a raft deflating with several subjects onboard attempting to cross the river,” Customs and Border Protection (CBP) explained in a statement.
A total of ten migrants hailing from El Salvador, Mexico, and Guatemala were brought aboard a CBP vessel and taken for processing.
“Earlier that afternoon, MCS agents rescued eight Cuban nationals from drowning near Anzalduas Dam,” CBP said.
“Agents assisted the migrants struggling to stay afloat by tossing several rescue ropes into the river.”
Mission Fire Department also aided in the rescue effort, helping the illegals to reach the U.S. side of the river, where they received medical attention before being taken for processing at McAllen Station.
On Saturday, Border Patrol El Paso Sector issued an emergency advisory after five people recently drowned in canals along the border.
The historic surge of illegal aliens across the southern border brought on by the Biden regime has contributed to a massive spike in migrant injuries, deaths, and drownings, as Infowars frequently reports.
