U.S. Customs and Border Protection (ICE) agents apprehended two illegal aliens from Nepal and three from Pakistan in two separate incidents on Thursday. 

Yuman Station agents discovered two 27-year-old men who were determined to have traveled from Nepal through India, Thailand, Colombia, and then onto Mexico before entering the U.S. The men were provided medical screening, cleared for transport and charged with immigration violations, according to an ICE press release.

In a separate incident, an agent at the Wellton Station observed six individuals and then directed Special Operations Detachment agents to the group's location. All six individuals were determined to be illegal aliens, three from Pakistan and three from Mexico. All six were charged with immigration violations.
