Border Patrol Agents Find 3 Illegal Immigrants Under Floorboard, 2 In Trunk

U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Interstate 19 immigration checkpoint stopped two weekend attempts to smuggle five illegal immigrants through the United States.

An agent referred a 2008 Dodge Caravan for a secondary inspection Friday evening after a Border Patrol canine alerted to an odor it was trained to detect. Upon further inspection, agents discovered three adult male Mexican nationals under the van’s floorboard.

A second smuggling attempt was stopped Sunday evening after an agent referred a 2005 Nissan Maxima for a secondary inspection. Upon opening the trunk, agents found two adult Mexican nationals inside.

The drivers, a 55-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman, both U.S. citizens, were arrested for smuggling illegal immigrants. The five Mexican nationals, ranging ages 21-35, are being processed for immigration violations. Both vehicles were seized.

    Seriously ADI.. GET REAL

    By definition “Immigrants” come here via legal immigration, these trespassers are criminal aliens.
    Why does the media (ADI included) keep butchering the English language wanting to sugar coat reality?
    What’s next, all drug dealers will be called unlicensed pharmacist to appease the PC sphincter police?
