U.S. Border Patrol officials say 360 migrants — mostly families from Central America — have surrendered to agents in Arizona.

Border Patrol camera operators spotted the group Tuesday after buses arrived south of the border about 14 miles west of the Port of Lukeville.

Agents watched as the group left the buses and walked under a vehicle barrier along the border.

CBP tweeted:

Other groups recently crossed in the remote area near Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument.

Earlier on April 16, CBP reported: “Before 5 a.m. MT this morning, #BorderPatrol agents apprehended more than 980 individuals that illegally crossed the border in 3 large groups. The groups, mostly comprised of family units from Central America, were apprehended in the El Paso and Tucson Sectors.”
