For the second time in just a matter of days, Border Patrol agents in the Tucson Border Sector found a shockingly large group of Unaccompanied Alien Children in the Arizona desert after illegally crossing the southern border.
On August 9, Border Patrol agents discovered a group of illegal aliens consisting of 71 unaccompanied alien children, along with another ten alien children who were accompanied by seven adult aliens.
The 88 illegal aliens crossed the southern border into Arizona near the hamlet of Sasabe, according to a tweet from Tucson Sector Chief Patrol Agent John R. Modlin.
