On Tuesday afternoon, Yuma Sector Border Patrol agents found two young migrant sisters wandering in the marshy area south of Morelos Dam. Agents working in the area spotted the 6-year-old and 4-year-old girls alone.

A Yuma Sector agent, concerned about their safety, quickly approached the young girls, and escorted them to safer terrain.

The girls were carrying a note with contact information for their “Tia.” The girls were taken into custody and attempts will be made to reunite them with family.

The area in which the girls were found, according to Border Patrol, is an often-used crossing point by unaccompanied migrant juveniles.

The day before, acting Chief Patrol Agent Sabri Y. Dikman, of the U.S. Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector, tweeted a photo of a group of migrants: “A group of 125 migrants surrendered to #ThreePoints Station agents near San Miguel, Arizona. Nearly three-quarters were unaccompanied children. Large groups of mostly children continue to be exploited by smugglers who leave them at the border for agents to encounter.”
