The agents were working at the Camp Bounds Forward Operating Base at Antelope Wells when they made contact with the immigrants.

The majority of the people in the group were Central American families and unaccompanied juveniles, according to the U.S. Border Patrol agents.  

An official with the U.S. Border Patrol said fifteen families requested medical attention shortly after being apprehended.

The group was apprehended one day after agents detained a group of 247 immigrants.
