Texas border guards officers discovered a hotel room where 10 illegal immigrants were staying while waiting to be smuggled into the United States.
On Friday afternoon, border guard officers in the Rio Grande Valley area were told that the Edinburgh hotel was being used to contain illegal immigrants. The city is located at the southern tip of Texas, near the Mexican border.
The officer went to investigate the hotel and saw two individuals enter a suspicious room with water and jugs of groceries. They continued to monitor the hotel room and determined it was being used to contain illegal immigrants, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said.
The Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office conducted a welfare check and found that there were more than 10 people in the room. CBP said the people are citizens of El Salvador, Honduras and Mexico.

The next morning, officers from McAllen border guards in Hidalgo discovered that more illegal immigrants, including unaccompanied children, had entered the United States illegally using storm sewers.
From early that morning until late at night, MCS agents and the Hidalgo Police Station set limits and arrested around 10 people who illegally invaded the United States using storm sewers. All subjects were citizens of Mexico and Honduras.

All migrants arrested in hotel rooms and using storm sewers have been treated, according to CBP.
Hidalgo is located approximately 20 miles south of Edinburgh, a short walk from the US-Mexico border.
This discovery occurred recently when thousands of Haitian immigrants overwhelmed officers at the US-Mexico border. On Monday, more than 6,000 Haitians and other immigrants were taken from camps in a town on the Texas border.
