Border Patrol agents in the Del Rio Sector apprehended a Pakistani national who illegally crossed the border from Mexico into Texas. The Pakistani man was reportedly not attempting to seek asylum but to surreptitiously enter the country.
A trusted source operating under the umbrella of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) who spoke with Breitbart Texas under the condition of anonymity and initially reported that agents assigned to the Comstock Station discovered a Pakistani national attempting to hide and avoid apprehension. The source said the Pakistani was not attempting to turn himself in to seek asylum, but was attempting to avoid detection.
In November 2017, Breitbart Texas Editor in Chief Brandon Darby broke the news that three Pakistani men were apprehended after illegally crossing the Mexican border into Arizona. Confidential CBP sources initially released the information to Breitbart Texas. CBP officials later confirmed the report via email. The three Pakistani men were placed in federal custody pending an investigation.
One year earlier, FBI officials confirmed to Breitbart Texas that a group of five Pakistani nationals and one man from Afghanistan were found about 16 miles inland from the Arizona-Mexico border.
