Agents found the group while responding to 911 calls reporting the crossings near Lukeville on Monday, Modlin stated. The responding agents took 235 migrants into custody including single adults, family units, and children, the photo shows.

Modlin said the large group crossing required the response of several agents to process the large migrant group. Border Patrol defines a “large group” as 100 or more migrants in a single event.
