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.

A Border Patrol canine alerted agents to a tractor trailer that drove into the facility for an immigration inspection. Agents opened the trailer and saw several cellophane wrapped bundles stacked to the ceiling. The bundles were inconsistent with the other cargo in the trailer.
