As the border crisis spirals out of control, US Border Patrol agents on Friday found a shocking amount of undocumented people stuffed inside a commercial trailer north of Laredo, Texas.
The incident occurred on April 16, when a large commercial trailer arrived at the Interstate Highway 35 checkpoint. During a routine non-intrusive scan of the trailer, agents "observed multiple anomalies inside the trailer," according to US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) press release.
Agents opened the sealed trailer, where they found a whopping 149 undocumented individuals locked inside. Many individuals were from Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Venezuela, El Salvador, Peru, and Ecuador, trying to escape socio-economic collapse and or drug cartels, for a new life in the US. All of the individuals were not wearing personal protective equipment.
"Human smugglers continue to have no regard for the safety and health of the people they exploit for profit," CBP said.
Over the weekend, the Biden administration finally admitted a border crisis along the Mexico–US border. The administration spent months downplaying the chaos.
Did Biden just admit it was a “crisis”?— Benny (@bennyjohnson) April 17, 2021
Oh man, Kamala Heiress is not going to be happy.
In March alone, 172,000 migrants were arrested after illegally entering the US - a 15-year record that has overwhelmed border agents.
Imagine all the other commercial trailers crammed with undocumented people entering the southern border that border agents cannot catch.
