An anonymous tip from a concerned citizen on Thursday, October 22, led to the detention of 19 undocumented immigrants in Frio County.
According to a social media post by the Frio County Sheriff’s Office, a call was made to the county’s emergency dispatcher mid-morning, indicating that a group of men had been seen jumping onto a northbound
Union Pacific freight train near the Frio River bridge some five miles north of Dilley.
State troopers and US Border Patrol agents assisted Frio County deputies in apprehending the immigrants a few miles south of the intersection of IH-35 and Hwy 57 when the train had been stopped.
