EDINBURG, Texas – Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Sector (RGV) expands its technological capabilities to reduce the number of migrant deaths. To address the increase in the number of lost migrants requiring rescue in desolate ranch lands, several rescue beacons have been deployed in the Falfurrias and Kingsville ranch areas. The rescue beacons have been deployed in areas that will have the greatest impact on rescue efforts. Rescue beacons are equipped with lights and signage, making it visible to lost and distressed subjects from a distance. Currently, 18 rescue beacons are deployed throughout the Rio Grande Valley Sector. By the end of the fiscal year, RGV will have 48 rescue beacons deployed.
