McALLEN—As part of the South Texas Campaign, Customs and Border Protection has brought in additional resources and more than 100 Border Patrol agents to the Rio Grande Valley Sector to assist with the targeted enforcement efforts against transnational criminal organizations.
Utilizing a flexible and unified workforce, the STC is mobilizing resources to supplement the manpower currently in the Rio Grande Valley. In addition to personnel already deployed in from Laredo Sector; agents and vehicles have been temporarily reassigned from California and Arizona.
This risk-based approach enhances enforcement efforts and aims to disrupt and degrade criminal organizations that are responsible for smuggling illegal immigrants and drugs throughout the South Texas Corridor.
