Nearly 200 illegal immigrants were detained at the U.S.-Mexico border by federal border agents in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol said the group was comprised primarily of Central American families and unaccompanied juveniles.

Sunland Park Emergency Medical Service responded to the scene where they provided medical attention.

It said in a statement that some of the illegal immigrants required further medical treatment. They were transported to a local hospital in Sunland Park.

‘This is a situation that Border Patrol Agents continue to face in southern New Mexico: hundreds of parents and children being encountered by agents after having faced a dangerous journey in the hands of unscrupulous smugglers,’ the statement read.

On Monday, around 90 undocumented immigrants were apprehended in the small town of Quemado, which lies just northwest of Eagle Pass.

Al were Honduran nationals and many were women and children.

The group surrendered to the arresting agents without incident, according to a US Customers and Border Protection statement said. A transport bus and several support units responded to the area and brought the group to the Eagle Pass South Station for processing.

When they arrived, a woman in the group was experiencing abdominal pain and stated that she was pregnant.

She was rushed to Fort Duncan Regional Medical Center where she went into labor and gave birth.

Del Rio Sector Acting Chief Patrol Agent Matthew J. Hudak said: ‘Although groups of this size, until recently, have been uncommon in the Del Rio area, our agents are encountering larger groups of immigrants with women and young children.

‘Our highest priority will always be the safety of all people involved, no matter the situation.
