Law enforcement sources report a deadly collision on US Highway 277 North near Del Rio, Texas, Monday. The accident occurred around 2:30 pm local time near the Edwards-Val Verde County Line. Authorities are still responding to the scene but initial reports indicate eight deaths thus far.

According to sources, the accident occurred after Texas State Troopers attempted a vehicle stop on suspected human smugglers. Official sources tell Breitbart Texas that the pursuit ultimately resulted in a head-on collision. The nationalities of those involved remains to be determined.

The accident comes amid drastic shifts away from immigration policies executed by the Trump administration. Relaxed orders have resulted in a significant increase in illegal entries and reduced the Border Patrol’s ability to conduct some routine patrols due to the humanitarian needs of unaccompanied children.
