A 24 year-old Brownsville woman is under arrest after Custom and Border Protection officers say she attempted to smuggle an 11 year-old boy from El Salvador into the United States.

It happened on Tuesday at the Gateway International port of entry when the two were referred to a secondary inspection and the entry documents were determined not valid to enter the country.

The woman was taken into custody by Homeland Security investigators and the child is in the care of the Refugee Resettlement Office.
