Illegal migrants arrested after entering Minnesota

ROSEAU, Minn. (AP) — U.S. Customs and Border Protection said 12 migrants from Ireland and Great Britain were arrested after illegally entering the United States in northern Minnesota.

Border Patrol agents, with the help of local law enforcement, intercepted the human smuggling attempt within two days in late September, the agency said over the weekend. .

An agent at the Warroad Border Patrol Station learned that two vehicles entered the United States illegally near Roseau on Sept. 25, according to a news release.

The officer drove south on Highway 89 toward Grygla and spotted the two vehicles at a gas station.

One of the vehicles drove off as the officer approached, but the officer made contact with the other driver, leading to the arrest of four migrants, the agency said.

The next day, an International Falls Border Patrol agent saw the other vehicle at a restaurant in Bemidji. The car was empty so the officer drove to a nearby hotel and spoke to a front desk clerk who said a couple had recently checked in but left shortly before the arrival of the ‘agent.

With the help of the Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office, the officer then located the couple and eight migrants who were arrested.

Earlier this year, a Florida man was charged with human trafficking in Minnesota after the bodies of four people in Canada were found near the US border. Authorities said the four men froze to death in a blizzard during a failed crossing attempt.
