2 ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS HIDE IN TRUNK OF CAR TO AVOID IMMIGRATION OFFICERS
A woman was arrested on July 6, 2020 for smuggling two illegal immigrants near Amado, Arizona.
With temperatures well over 100 degrees, federal agents referred a Crown Victoria sedan to a secondary inspection at a Arizona immigration check point. Agents subsequently discovered a Guatemalan man, 20, and a Mexican man, 19, both illegally present in the United States concealed in the vehicle’s trunk.
The driver was arrested and ultimately released for her role in the smuggling incident.
Both illegal border crossers were processed for immigration violations and expelled from the United States under Title 42 authority.
