PRESIDIO, Texas (KTSM) – A pregnant Honduran immigrant is now safe after she was treated by a Border Patrol agent in Presidio last week.

The woman was taken to Big Bend Regional Medical Center in Alpine, Texas to receive additional medical care. 

According to the release, the woman was later determined to be illegally present in the U.S. and was processed according to immigration laws.
