Dozens of undocumented immigrants are in custody after a stash house was raided near a school.  

The home was on the 2300 block of Roosevelt Drive in Donna. 32 people were taken in from Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala.  

The home was near Munoz Elementary.  

"All individuals were apprehended inside the house, no people were seen leaving the area, everything was contained within the residence," said Daniel Tirado of the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol. "None of the detained individuals appeared to need medical assistance, all of them were taken to the Border Patrol station to be processed accordingly." 

A concerned citizen called in the tip that led to the raid.
