According to an article on valleycentral.com, authorities discovered a shrine to La Santa Muerte, which many people claim to be evil.
“Border Patrol agents detained 37 people Monday after searching a stash house in Edinburg.
Agents worked with the Texas Department of Public Safety to conduct a traffic stop on a smuggler, according to a news release from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
They subsequently searched a home on the 1700 block of North McColl Road in Edinburg.
During the search, agents discovered a shrine to Santa Muerte, according to the news release.
Agents detained 37 people who weren’t legally present in the United States, including three juveniles from Mexico and Honduras. They were processed at the McAllen Border Patrol Station.
“These immigrants are essentially held for ransom,” said Chief Patrol Agent Manuel Padilla Jr. according to the news release. “And, these smugglers are putting these migrants in harm’s way in the middle of our residential neighborhoods.”
Agents ask anyone who sees suspicious activity to call (800) 863-9382.”
