During the primary immigration interview, a Border Patrol K-9 alerted to an odor coming from the trailer it is trained to detect. The agents referred the driver, a U.S. citizen, to a secondary inspection area, according to information obtained from Laredo Sector Border Patrol officials. In the secondary area, agents unlocked the trailer and found 100 people trapped inside with no means of escape in the event of a crash or abandonment by the human smugglers. Agents reported the temperature inside the trailer was 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
With recent developments on the border we should really start calling illegal immigration at our border what it really is, and the fact is illegal immigration on our border is directly connected to illegal immigration. Actually since the end of August illegal immigration being involved directly with human trafficking can be proven, as around 20 human trafficking stash houses have been taken down by border authorities with CBP and Border Patrol since the end of August.
When we see stories where 100 human beings are discovered on our border with Mexico stuffed in a tractor trailer, then it's immediately clear that illegal immigration at our border is directly connected to human trafficking networks. Groups of dozens trying to get across the border inside a refrigerated tractor trailer is not people attempting to get into the country, this is legit human trafficking...And illegal immigration is directly connected to it. Recently this week ICE announced that an illegal alien child taken across the border into Chicago by a Chicago couple were just charged for child labor trafficking...That involved the child taken by them across the US/Mexico border.
