The border patrol took more than 30 illegal immigrants into custody after a stash house was discovered near Laredo.
Crews were conducting aerial surveillance when they spotted the house suspected of harboring the migrants. They then relayed the information, including details of vehicle movements, to authorities on the ground who were able to make the apprehensions.
Border Patrol officials say they have seen a marked increase in migrant apprehensions since the beginning of the year.
