WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – Authorities have apprehended the largest migrant caravan crossing the US-Mexican border to date, taking 289 people into custody, the Customs and Border Protection agency announced in a press release on Wednesday.

"As agents responded, they observed hundreds of people consisting of family units and unaccompanied children cross the [Rio Grande] river levee," the release said.

The 289 people formed the largest group of migrants found crossing the Rio Grande River Valley in the state of Texas so far this year, the release said.
