Mexican authorities rescued 81 migrants that were held captive in a house for several days in the border city of Reynosa, Texas.
Federal agents followed a tip that led them to the home where the migrant had been held. The public ministry said that all migrants except one are Central Americans and they were a a mixture of men and women. The migrants said that they were trying to enter the United States illegally.
Such incidents are not rare and kidnappings like these are one of the many risks faced by Central Americans traveling from Mexico.
Reports say that the unidentified kidnappers managed to escape.
