SAN LUIS, Ariz. -- Border Patrol agents caught a group of Guatemalans who illegally crossed the U.S.-Mexico border on one side of San Luis and a group of Romanians on the other.

Yuma Sector spokesman Douglas Choi said the groups separately crossed the border in southwestern Arizona on Thursday.

He said four Guatemalans got over the three-fence barrier on the east side of San Luis, probably using ladders provided by smugglers.

According to Choi, five Romanians crossed the border through the bed of the Colorado River on the west side of San Luis.

Choi said aside from Mexican nationals there's also a stream of people Central America, South America, India and Romania crossing in the Yuma Sector.
