Agents in the Del Rio Sector apprehended more than 3,400 migrants who illegally crossed the border over the Super Bowl weekend, officials reported. These agents also interdicted 27 smuggling incidents and rescued at least 24 migrants, including a family of three drowning in the Rio Grande.

Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Jason D. Owens tweeted a report that his agents apprehended more than 3,400 migrants over the weekend where most Americans were preparing to watch Super Bowl LVI. In addition, he said his agents disrupted 27 smuggling attempts leading to the arrest of 142 people and prosecuted 24 rescue operations.

The 24 rescues included a dramatic rescue captured on video where Eagle Pass Station agents risked their own lives to rescue a Haitian family of three. The video captures agents performing CPR on the father who had been submerged in the Rio Grande for several minutes. Their immediate response saved the lives of all three family members, Breitbart Texas reported.
