In a tweet, they stated that ‘YumaSector #USBP agents apprehended 49 individuals from Guatemala who illegally crossed an outdated section of 16-foot border wall yesterday.’
‘During the incident, a 3-year-old girl fell off the smugglers’ ladder. Agents rendered aid to the child who sustained minor injuries.
The incident occurred when the group crossed the border fence between San Luis, Rio Colorado, Sonora and Arizona.
