Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents have arrested 62 illegal immigrants at a home in Edinburg. Border Patrol spokesman Dan Doty said his agency received information about possible illegal immigrants at the location and requested ICE to assist.

The immigrants will be processed at Border Patrol stations and then probably handed over to ICE for deportation. Doty said most of those detained were not Mexican.

Adelina Prundea, an ICE spokeswoman, said it was too early to say whether the discovery would lead to a human smuggling investigation.
