As the U.S. continues to face an influx of migrants along its southern border, Rio Grande City Border Patrol Station agents recently discovered a group of nearly 300 migrants who had unlawfully entered the country.

The group of 298 individuals included 60 unaccompanied kids and represented the biggest migrant group RGV agents have encountered during the current fiscal year, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

But that is not the only large group that authorities have recently encountered — the agency’s news release also mentioned two other groups numbering more than 200 people.

“Friday morning, RGC agents working in La Grulla, Texas, observed a large group of migrants make landfall in the United States,” according to CBP. “The group totaled 235 migrants consisting of 187 family members, 27 unaccompanied children, and 21 single adult migrants.”
