KINGSVILLE — U.S. Border Patrol agents rescued two men early June 26 near the Kingsville Station after the Guatemalan Nationals were bitted by rattlesnakes.
The men are part of a growing number of people rescued this fiscal year by agents. Since October 2011, nearly 200 people have been rescued and the remains of 64 more have been found. United States Customs and Border Protection urges people not to put their lives at risk by entering the States illegally or by circumventing a checkpoint — especially now, as temperatures rise.
CBP said the men will be processed for return to Guatemala. To report suspicious activity, call the Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Sector’s toll-free telephone number at 800-863-9382.
