3 Men Accused of Harboring 50 Illegal Immigrants

Posted on January 25th, 2013 No Comments

On Tuesday, January 15, federal agents arrested three El Salvadoran men after they were caught with 50 illegal immigrants in their custody at a mobile home in South Texas.

The three are scheduled for a detention hearing in McAllen after being charged with harboring illegal immigrants. Thus far, the three men accused have denied the allegations.

According to court documents, the men used deadly weapons to coerce the immigrants into submission and, as stated by those held captive, were guarding the exit. An immigrant who escaped led Border Patrol agents to the discovery of the captive immigrants who came from Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador.

The immigrants are now being held by state officials pending verification of their status.
