Border Patrol Stops 2 Smugglers After High-Speed Chase – 13 Illegals Detained

Published

on

These were most likely cartel smugglers, or they paid a cartel to be allowed to cross the border. This was extremely dangerous for all involved, including the Border Patrol agents.

“U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) agents assigned to East County San Diego stopped fleeing smugglers in two separate events resulting in 15 arrests Wednesday night.

The first event occurred near Boulevard, Calif. on December 18 at around 7:30 p.m. An agent using surveillance equipment observed a group of people running north from the U.S/Mexico international border into the U.S.

As agents responded, 11 people loaded into a red Ford truck and packed themselves into the cab and under the bed cover as the truck sped away. Agents quickly located the truck and attempted to initiate a vehicle stop but the driver continued to flee at a high rate of speed. Minutes later, Border Patrol agents deployed a tire deflation device and successfully stopped the truck on Tierra Del Sol Road.

Agents arrested the driver, a 20-year-old U.S. citizen, who is being held in Federal custody pending alien smuggling charges. The 11 Mexican national passengers sustained no injuries and are being processed for removal. The passengers included four men and seven women, one of which was a 15-year-old girl. The USBP seized the truck.

The second event began at around 10 p.m. at the State Route (SR) 94 checkpoint in Jamul, Calif. A gray Toyota Corolla approached primary inspection; however, when the agent began to ask questions, the male driver accelerated and fled the checkpoint at a high rate of speed toward the community of Jamul. Agents immediately pursued the fleeing driver.

During the pursuit, the vehicle slowed and agents saw two men jump out of the moving vehicle’s trunk. One agent stopped for the two people while another agent continued to pursue the vehicle.

The chase ended at Melody Street off SR 94 where the vehicle came to a stop. Agents arrested the driver.

The two men who exited the vehicle’s trunk were evaluated and had no injuries. Agent’s identified them as Mexican nationals who were illegally present in the U.S. and are being processed for removal.

The driver, an 18-year-old U.S. citizen, is in Federal custody and faces alien smuggling charges. The USBP seized the vehicle.

“These incidents are examples of the dangerous acts human smugglers perform every day for financial gain and demonstrates their indifference for the lives of those involved and the driving public,” said Chief Patrol Agent Douglas Harrison. “Fortunately, these events came to a safe conclusion and ended with the drivers in custody. I am proud of the hard work our agents carry out to protect our communities from the dangerous smugglers.””

Immigration Detainees In PA Prison Demand Release Because Of Coronavirus – Begin Hunger Strike

Published

You wouldn’t be in prison if you didn’t illegally enter the country & then commit other crimes once here.

“A number of federal immigration detainees being held in York County Prison have gone on a hunger strike, demanding their release in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to an advocacy group.

The federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement office has confirmed “several” detainees have “refused food” but would not answer specific questions, including how many detainees are involved.

The group Movement of Immigrant Leaders (MILPA) posted a statement it identified as being from a man who was recently arrested and jailed there.

“We are like sitting ducks” for becoming sick with COVID-19, according to the unidentified man’s statement.

“In my block there are older gentlemen, there are people with high (blood) pressure, diabetes, who are still here,” according to the statement. “We’re on strike — we’re not eating. We want people to get out on probation … and released. We’re chickens in a chicken coop here. …”

The statement alleges that neither corrections officers nor nurses wear masks or gloves.

The MILPA posting states there are concerns the coronavirus could easily spread in the prison and that detainees fear they would not receive proper medical treatment if they contract COVID-19.

A number of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainees held in York County Prison have had bail set, but the detainee whose report MILPA made public on Facebook over the weekend states that bail-bonding services don’t want to work with immigrants.

“There are people here for parking tickets, driving without a license,” according to the statement. “(T)hey have American kids, they’ve been here for half their lives. … Many of us have families who are being destroyed.”

ICE spokesman Adrian Smith sent the following statement to The York Dispatch on Monday:

“Several detainees in ICE custody at York County Prison … have recently refused meals, but still have access to food via the commissary. Due to privacy rules, we are prohibited from discussing individuals engaged in a hunger strike by name or specifics of their case absent the detainee’s consent. ICE fully respects the rights of all people to voice their opinion without interference. ICE does not retaliate in any way against hunger strikers. ICE explains the negative health effects of not eating to our detainees, and they are under close medical observation by ICE or contract medical providers. For their health and safety, ICE carefully monitors the food and water intake of those detainees identified as being on a hunger strike.”

The American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania recently sued York County Prison and county prisons in Pike and Clinton counties on behalf of 13 detainees who are particularly vulnerable to COVID-19.

York County Prison Warden Clair Doll said recently that the prison is monitoring staff members, inmates and detainees and quarantining those with flu-like symptoms and fevers.

York County spokesman Mark Walters on Monday declined comment about MILPA’s allegations and referred all questions to ICE officials.

MILPA coordinator Desi Burnette did not return several messages seeking comment last week and on Monday.

MILPA has started an online petition called “Release Our Loved Ones” that asks state and federal authorities to release detainees age 50 and older, asks ICE stop arresting and imprisoning undocumented immigrants and has a number of other demands.”

Border Patrol Arrests Smuggler With 42 Illegals, Most Crammed In 12×6 Utility Trailer

Published

Talk about a disregard for human life. The smuggler locked the trailer from the outside & gave the illegals no food or water. This was most likely a cartel smuggling operation.

CALEXICO, Calif. – El Centro Sector Border Patrol agents assigned to the El Centro station arrested a man suspected of smuggling 42 illegal immigrants, which most were dangerously packed in a towed utility trailer Tuesday morning.

The incident occurred at approximately 8 a.m., when agents observed a man driving a Ford F-250 with an enclosed utility trailer in tow. The vehicle was traveling away from a location that is known for human and narcotic smuggling.

Border Patrol agents conducted a vehicle stop and questioned the driver as to his citizenship. The driver stated that he was a Mexican citizen and indicated to the agents that there were people inside the trailer.

Border Patrol agents inspected the vehicle and trailer, which revealed 42 undocumented immigrants, 38 of which were in the trailer. The individuals inside the trailer were without food, water, ventilation or safety restraints. Additionally, the trailer was locked from the outside leaving the individuals with no way of exiting in case of an emergency. The trailer measured 12 feet by 6 feet, forcing the 38 individuals, two being juveniles, to cram together with no room for movement.

The driver, a 31-year-old man was determined to be a Mexican national illegally present in the United States.

The driver and all 42 undocumented immigrants, which included a total of three juveniles, were placed under arrest and transported to the Calexico station for further investigation.

“These individuals were put in extreme circumstances by a callous smuggling organization,” said Acting Chief Patrol Agent Ryan J. Scudder. “In the event of an accident the amount and degree of injuries could have been catastrophic. I am so grateful that our agents were able to keep these people from harm.”
