A total of 13 migrants have now been confirmed dead after a massive group last week tried to cross the Rio Grande River near the Texas border. 

Border Patrol agents in the Del Rio Sector, including Border Patrol’s Search, Trauma and Rescue (BORSTAR) and riverine agents, responded on Thursday to a large group of people near Eagle Pass, Texas, and apprehended 53 migrants. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) Air and Marine officials also aided in the mission. 

Thirty-seven of the migrants were rescued as they tried to cross the Rio Grande into the United States. Officials on Friday initially said that agents had discovered eight dead migrants. On Saturday, CBP said the death toll had risen to nine. 

Then CBP Commissioner Chris Magnus tweeted that he was “reflecting on the 13 lives lost … while they attempted to cross the Rio Grande River at Eagle Pass.”

“I appreciate the dangerous work of our Border Patrol to save lives and recover the bodies of the deceased,” he added. “Their job is not an easy one and many people don’t realize the toll it can take on those who serve as Agents.”
