Federal officials said on Sunday another group of Syrian refugees had turned themselves in at the US-Mexico border.
The Department of Homeland Security confirmed that the group identified themselves to border agents in the South Texas town of Laredo on Friday. It said the group consisted of a family of three along with two other men.
They were held to check their identities against national security databases and then turned over to US Immigration and Customs Enforcement for temporary detention.
The refugees’ arrival came after two Syrian families identified themselves on Tuesday to border officials in Laredo. In each instance, the men were taken to one detention facility and the women and children to another.
