Texas DPS Drone Spots 37 Migrants in Rail Car Near Border

(RepublicanInformer.com)- 37 migrants were spotted in an open-top rail car near the border in Maverick County by a Texas Department of Public Safety drone operator, according to Breitbart. The DPS drone pilot reportedly utilized thermal imaging to locate the migrants where Special Operations Group troopers subsequently went to the scene to locate them.

The pilot is working under Governor Greg Abbott’s Operation Lone Star, which is a joint mission between the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas Military Department to secure the southern border launched in 2021 after President Biden’s open-border policies have begun to ravage American communities with rampant illegal immigration, drug and sex trafficking.

The group of migrants reportedly consisted of 36 adults and one minor from Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador. After they were caught, they were brought to the Del Rio Sector Border Patrol agents.

Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Jason D. Owens tweeted a picture the same day of a group of 30 migrants apprehended after a Small Unmanned Aircraft System (sUAS) pilot located them.

“Technology continues to play a large role in border security,” he tweeted. “The result: 30 migrants arrested!”

The agent also tweeted that as of August 31, “322,531 single adults from over 118 countries have been apprehended in the Del Rio Sector this fiscal year. That accounts for over 75% of this sector’s apprehensions.”

Illegal immigration is prompting even Hispanic voters to switch parties to Republican. Recently, Trump-endorsed candidate Representative Mayra Flores won a Texas district that has been blue for about 150 years. She not only flipped Cameron County red but will be the first Mexican-born Congresswoman to take office.

Senator Ted Cruz also predicts that former police officer Yesli Vega, a Salvadoran American, who has also won her primary race in Virginia, will go on to flip her county. Vega’s brother was nearly killed by MS-13, Cruz said, proclaiming that Hispanic women are fed up with the unsafe Democratic policies ruining the country and their communities.
