Caravan of 128 Illegal Aliens Stopped By Border Patrol in AZ
Border Patrol agents stopped a caravan carrying 128 illegal aliens after they crossed into Arizona from Mexico on Friday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said.
In a statement released Tuesday evening, CBP said agents patrolling near the Lukeville Port, 100 miles west of Tucson, found the group. It is assumed human smugglers who stayed behind in Mexico brought the illegal immigrants into the U.S.
The group consisted of adults and children, some as young as four years old. Several of the adults were previously charged with immigration violations.
