Border agents net several human smugglers and rescue dozens of illegal immigrants held by them. The arrests were made over the last few days at several locations starting Saturday. Rio Grande City, McAllen and Penitas agents, McAllen and La Joya Police officers and Border Patrol agents at the Javier Vega Junior Checkpoint were involved.
Around a half dozen U.S. citizens now face human smuggling and transport charges. Nearly 20-illegal immigrants are in Border Patrol custody to be processed.
