WATCH: 27 Migrants Rescued from Locked Railcars near Border in Texas
[Breitbart] Del Rio Sector Border Patrol agents rescued a group of migrants locked inside a railcar in Eagle Pass, Texas. Border Patrol officials in the Del Rio and Laredo Sectors report increases in the use of trains to smuggle migrants.

Union Pacific Railroad Police summoned Border Patrol agents to a freight yard in Eagle Pass, Texas, on September 1. In an all-too-common occurrence, Border Patrol agents removed 27 migrants hidden in multiple railcars. Agents found one migrant, hidden in a new car recently assembled in Mexico. Agents treated the migrant who became unresponsive from heat exhaustion.

In all, a total of 11 migrants were found hiding in a single rail car along with the unresponsive migrant. A more exhaustive search of the entire train led to the arrest of another 16 migrants found hiding in other freight cars. A seven-year-old boy was among the group of male and female migrants rescued from the simmering rail cars.

Temperatures in the area remain in the high 90’s creating higher temperatures in the sealed railroad cars.

The discovery of migrants hidden on freight trains is a near-daily occurrence. The migrants are found near the border and sometimes miles away during inspections by Border Patrol agents and local law enforcement officials. Migrants are increasingly finding unique and sometimes dangerous places to hide on the numerous freight trains leaving Eagle Pass bound for the interior of the United States.
