It appears Mexico is continuing its success in tracking down kidnapping victims along the country's United States border.

According to ABC News, 73 kidnapped migrants were rescued by Mexican federal and state police from a home in Reynosa -- a town across the border from McAllen, Texas. Seventeen of the migrants are from Honduras, 13 from Guatemala, three from EL Salvador and the other 40 are from Mexico.

The Mexican Immigration Institute reports that some of the migrants had been held captive for over three months, after being kidnapped at a Reynosa bus station.

In June, Mexican soldiers rescued 165 people whom had been kidnapped by a drug cartel and held for as long as three weeks in a home alongside the U.S. Border.
