Large group of migrants found traversing desert
TACNA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - Wellton Border Patrol agents recently tracked and arrested a group of migrants who were traveling through the Sonoran Desert.
11 migrants from Mexico were apprehended about 35 miles south of Tacna, Arizona.
Among the group was a two-year-old child and a 16-year-old unaccompanied man.
Each individual in the group was taken into custody and processed.
Traveling through the desert is dangerous, more so in Sonora as reaching Interstate 8 takes at least five days if using the route migrants take.
