Thanks to President Joe Biden’s immigration policy, human smuggling attempts are becoming increasingly common.
Amidst the largest illegal immigration surge in recent history, U.S. Customs and Border Protection is under far more pressure to enforce border security. Unfortunately, an oft-ignored aspect of Border Patrol is how often the law enforcement agency saves lives.
Chief Patrol Agent Austin Skero of the Del Rio, Texas, sector tweeted photos on Tuesday of 20 illegal immigrants Border Patrol agents discovered packed under the floorboards of a trailer. The worst part, though, is that two children were found after inspecting the trailer.
Yesterday, a Del Rio Sector K9 alerted to this trailer at one of our checkpoints. An inspection located 2 children (ages 10 and 15) trapped under the trailer boards with 18 adults. With temperatures on the rise, smuggling attempts like these have a high potential to turn deadly. pic.twitter.com/Bf5X9oDijK
