News From the Border

Providing the news from a different front but from a war that we must win as well! I recognize the poverty and desperate conditions that many Latinos live in. We, as the USA, have a responsibility to do as much as we can to reach out to aid and assist spiritually with the Gospel and naturally with training, technology and resources. But poverty gives no one the right to break the laws of another sovereign nation.

Border Patrol Agents Rescue 10 Aliens from Cargo Trailer

Wednesday, February 27, 2008

Laredo, Texas – Border Patrol agents assigned to the Laredo North station rescued 10 illegal aliens from a smuggling attempt Tuesday.

Agents working at the checkpoint on Interstate Highway 35 north of Laredo conducted a routine immigration inspection on a tractor trailer that drove into the facility late Tuesday night. While agents interviewed the driver a Border Patrol canine alerted agents to the trailer, indicating the presence of hidden contraband or people.

Agents examined the trailer and noticed that a security seal on the door was broken. After opening the trailer, agents discovered 10 adults hiding among the cargo. All of the people were identified as illegal aliens. None of them required or requested medical attention.

The driver and the aliens were turned over to ICE agents.
