Border Patrol Prevents Human Smuggling Attempts via Box Trucks

Published

on

LAREDO, TEXAS – U.S. Border Patrol agents prevented two separate human smuggling attempts, on the same day, via box trucks at two different Border Patrol checkpoints in the Laredo Sector.

The first incident occurred during the early morning hours of May 23, when a box truck approached the checkpoint on Interstate Highway 35 north of Laredo. During an immigration inspection of the driver, a Service canine alerted to the vehicle. Agents discovered 13 individuals hidden inside who were all illegally present in the United States from the country of Mexico. The individuals and the driver, a U.S. Citizen, were taken into custody pending investigation.

The second incident occurred several minutes later, when agents encountered a box truck at the checkpoint west of Freer, Texas. During an immigration inspection, a Service canine alerted to the cargo area of the vehicle. Agents found an access panel that led to the discovery of an aftermarket compartment where 10 individuals were hiding. All 10 were in the country illegally and from Mexico. The individuals and the driver, a U.S. Citizen, were taken into custody pending investigation.

Despite the threat of the COVID-19 pandemic, smugglers continue to endanger the lives of individuals they exploit and the health and safety of our Nation. U.S. Border Patrol agents strive to prevent the flow of illegal immigration and slow the spread of COVID-19.
