The migrants encountered are from Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and the majority from Guatemala.

#AceDailyNews reports that ‘Back-to-Back Large Groups Encountered in 24-Hours in RGV’ yesterday morning, Rio Grande City Border Patrol Station agents working near La Grulla, Texas, encountered a group of 336 illegal-migrants as they walked from the Rio Grande into the United States, which, at the time, was the largest group encountered this summer.

Last night, McAllen Border Patrol Station agents working near Hidalgo, Texas, encountered 509 migrants which included 331 family members, 115 unaccompanied children, and 63 single adults. These apprehensions account for the single largest group apprehended thus far, this year. RGV Sector began tracking large groups in 2007 and last night’s encounter is by far, one of the largest to date. This group consisted of migrants from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Ecuador and Venezuela.

RGV agents continue to encounter significant numbers of undocumented migrants crossing the border and our federal, state, and local partnerships are indispensable as we work to secure our border and work to quickly move individuals out of USBP custody and through the appropriate immigration pathway. “From the river to ranchlands, our agents are doing everything they can to locate and rescue individuals who are lost or distressed, and we are witnessing firsthand that migrants are experiencing the worst as their trek to the border is unforgiving,” said Chief Patrol Agent Brian Hastings. To date, RGV has accounted for over 700 rescues this fiscal year.

UN Expert Cites Need for Regulating Private Security Firms

The United Nations Working Group on the use of mercenaries today urged Governments to recognize the need for a legally binding international agreement to regulate the use and activities of private military and security companies (PMSCs) to complement existing regulations.

PMCS“Providing security is a fundamental human right and a fundamental responsibility of the State,” Anton Katz, who currently chairs the five-member group of independent experts, said in a <“http://www.ohchr.org/EN/NewsEvents/Pages/DisplayNews.aspx?NewsID=13940&LangID=E“>news release.

“But the ever-expanding activities of PMSCs continue to raise a number of challenges, and the outsourcing of security to these companies by States create risks for human rights, hence the need to regulate their activities.”

Presenting the group’s report to the General Assembly’s Third Committee, which examines human rights issues, Mr. Katz stressed that existing national legislation is not sufficient to address the challenges posed by PMSCs.

He cited inadequacies related registering and licensing, and the lack of effective and transparent mechanisms and remedies for human rights violations within existing legislation, adding that these limitations are worsened by the transnational nature of PMSCs and the difficulties in ensuring accountability for any violations that may occur.

Montreux Document He noted that there are self-regulatory initiatives such as the Montreux Document and the International Code of Conduct which have been established by a number of States and corporate actors in the past years to try to address the challenges posed by PMSCs.

“However, these initiatives are not legally binding and cannot be considered as complete solutions for the problems concerning PMSCs,” he stressed.

On mercenaries, Mr. Katz said that recent events in several parts of the world demonstrate that mercenaries remain a threat not only to security but also to human rights and the right of people’s to self-determination. “We continue to call on States to cooperate in eliminating this phenomenon,” he stated.

Over the past year, the group made two country visits, to Somalia and Honduras. It also launched a national legislation project to look into analysing good practices and possible shortcomings in States’ protection of human rights in transnational security-related activities.

It has also embarked on a study on the UN’s use of PMSCs which will be the focus of its report to the General Assembly in 2014.

Members of the Working Group are appointed by the Human Rights Council. Their positions are honorary and the experts are not UN staff, nor are they paid for their work.
