Recently in Hidalgo County, a tip led Federal Immigration Agents to a house used for trafficking illegal immigrants across the border. A total of 20 illegal immigrants were found when agents raided the residence. Nineteen of the twenty people found inside were Mexican Nationals and one was Honduran. The United States Border Patrol reports that it’s common practice to hide illegal immigrants after they first enter the county.
