In a recent development in Roma, Texas, an illegal immigrant was discovered evading authorities and hiding among homes in a residential neighborhood, Your Content has learned.

The individual was found wearing a cartel wristband, indicating payment for the crossing.

The Rio Grande Valley (RGV) has been a focal point for border crossings, with numerous reports of illegal activities and crossings. The presence of cartels and their influence in facilitating these crossings for a fee has been a growing concern for local authorities.

Bill Melugin, who reported the incident, stated, “Embedded with @TxDPS in Roma, TX tonight in the RGV. This illegal immigrant had just crossed the river and was evading & hiding amongst homes in a residential neighborhood. Wearing cartel wristband showing she paid to cross. She tells us she paid them $1,200. Says she’s from MX.”

The immigrant, whose identity remains undisclosed, revealed that she paid the cartel a sum of $1,200 for assistance in crossing the river. The wristband she wore serves as proof of payment to the cartel, a practice that has been observed in previous incidents.
