A border patrol agent stopped a suspicious looking truck at a checkpoint between Laredo and San Antonio, Texas, and they noticed something was a bit off. It didn’t take long before they found an unusual surprise crammed in the box trunk cargo before the driver was subsequently arrested.
An agent assigned to the border patrol checkpoint located between Laredo and San Antonio felt something wasn’t quite right about a box truck trying to pass through a checkpoint. They quickly realized their suspicions were right when they confirmed what was in the truck.
According to Breitbart, after questioning the driver about his citizenship and immigration status, the agents referred the man to a secondary inspection station. During the secondary inspection, a K-9 agent alerted authorities to the possible presence of narcotics or human cargo in the back of the locked truck, and when agents opened up the truck, they found four illegals stuffed inside.
The driver of the truck was arrested after questioning, and Laredo Sector officials continued to warn of the dangers to illegal immigrants from callous cartel-connected human smugglers. Illegal migrant smuggling is nothing new to the agents. The MAGA News reported that earlier in October, another human smuggling truck driver pleaded guilty in federal court to charges of Transporting Undocumented Aliens Resulting in Death after ten illegal immigrants died from being locked in his trailer.
A second person, Pedro Silva Segura, a 47-year-old illegal alien living in Laredo, also faces charges in connection with the horrific deaths of the immigrants being smuggled into the country. Those charges include one count of conspiracy to transport and harbor undocumented aliens for financial gain resulting in death, one count of conspiracy to transport and harbor undocumented aliens for financial gain resulting in serious bodily injury and placing lives in jeopardy, and two counts of transporting undocumented aliens resulting in serious bodily injury and placing lives in jeopardy.
It appears that some immigrants will do just about anything to get into our country, except going through legal means. Instead of risking their lives by cramming into a sweaty and cramped place, like a game of Tetris, they could do it the legal way and avoid the hassle. You don’t have to risk death or your family’s future to get your hands on the “American Dream.”
Cases such as this one prove we are the greatest nation to live in as those south of the border will do whatever it takes to get here. Our border has been an ongoing issue, but luckily, with President Donald Trump in office, we can hope to see more criminals stopped and reprimanded before they enter our country and wreak havoc now that we have a Commander-in-Chief who respects law and order.
We need Trump’s help in fixing the illegal trafficking to keep our nation safe. It is crucial we do what we can to preserve our country and keep our citizens safe from the dangers that the illegals can bring. That means we must put an end to the increasing flow of illegal immigration to keep our country the best place to live.
