13 Chinese Caught at U.S.-Mexico Border. Africans, Brazilians, and Pakistanis Caught, Too. Smugglers Arrested.
Written by R. Cort Kirkwood
U.S. Border Patrol agents have nailed 13 Chinese and three dozen Africans and Brazilians and two Pakistanis at the U.S. border with Mexico in the past week along with four illegal-alien smugglers.
Though apprehensions of illegals at the border have dropped dramatically since agents were overrun with nearly 150,000 illegals during May, monthly totals are still in the tens of thousands. More than 50,000 illegals crossed in September, and border agents apprehended nearly a million in fiscal 2019.
And that total has routinely included nationals who are not from Mexico or Central America, but instead illegals who have traveled there in the hope they might cross the border, claim asylum, wait for release, and then disappear.
Chinese Fire Drill
Border agents caught the latest batch of Chinese on November 10.
They bagged a Mexican and seven Chinese, six men and one woman. The Mexican, CBP reported, was an illegal-alien smuggler and charged with that crime.
At about noon on November 7, the agency reported, an American in a moving van arrived at the port. “A CBP officer conducting inspections of vehicles as they waited in line noticed that the rear door of the moving truck was ajar,” CPB reported, and as he spoke with the driver, CBP dogs brought in to sniff the vehicle alerted agents that something was amiss.
CBP officers inspected the truck’s rear wall, prying it open slightly with a flat-head screwdriver, revealing a person. The driver was immediately removed from the vehicle and escorted into a secure area for further processing. CBP officers drove the truck to a secure location where they removed the false wall, freeing six Chinese nationals.
With six you get eggroll, as the old Doris Day comedy was titled, but any rate Chinese aren’t the only illegals who cross oceans to jump the border from Mexico.
Del Rio agents stopped another large bunch of illegals yesterday. They collared 36 from Congo, Brazil, Angola, the Democratic Republic of Congo. Illegals from the DRC might carry the Ebola virus, a pathogen that kills more often than not.
“Since the beginning of Fiscal Year 2020, Oct. 1,” CBP reported, “agents in the Del Rio Sector have apprehended more than 2,900 people from countries other than Mexico, a 60 percent increase from FY19, to date.”
The agency has not released apprehensions for October.
Throughout 2019, CBP reported, agents collared illegals from 59 countries.
Three More Smugglers
CBP also reported that agents caught three other smugglers who were attempting to bring in seven illegal aliens.
One, an American citizen from Elmendorff, Texas, with an “extensive criminal history,” tried to bring in three of the illegals: one Mexican and two more from Honduras, a mother and her 12-year-old daughter.
Agents also caught two brothers from San Antonio, Texas, who tried to smuggle four Mexican illegals into the country.
