Border Patrol catches 21 migrants entering El Paso through storm drain system in Segundo Barrio

A U.S. Border Patrol raid in El Paso’s historic Segundo Barrio neighborhood on the city’s south side late Friday night resulted in 21 migrants being taken into custody, officials told ABC-7.

Authorities said the migrants were believed to have entered through a storm drain system near Bowie Bakery in the 900 block of S. Park Street around shift change time at 10 p.m.

Video provided to ABC-7 courtesy of viewer El Joviz documented the migrant arrests as they happened, showing agents literally pulling men out of a sewer drain.

Border Patrol said it believes agents caught everyone who was part of that illegal entry group.
