Illegal immigrants will stop at nothing to experience the freedom and monetary benefit of being in the United States

Border Patrol agents arrested a man suspected of smuggling 42 illegal immigrants, most of them were dangerously packed in a towed utility truck trailer on Tuesday morning March 17, 2020 in Calexico, California.

The incident occurred at approximately 8 a.m., when agents observed a man driving a Ford F-250 with an enclosed utility trailer in tow. The vehicle was traveling away from a location that is known for human and narcotic smuggling.

Border Patrol agents conducted a vehicle stop and questioned the driver as to his United States citizenship. The driver stated that he was a Mexican citizen and indicated to the agents that there were people inside the trailer.

Border Patrol agents inspected the vehicle and trailer, which revealed 42 undocumented immigrants, 38 of which were in the trailer. The individuals inside the trailer were without food, water, ventilation, or safety restraints. Additionally, the trailer was locked from the outside leaving the individuals with no way of exiting in case of an emergency.

The trailer measured 12 feet by 6 feet, forcing the 38 individuals, two being juveniles, to cram together with no room for movement. The driver, a 31-year-old man was determined to be a Mexican national illegally present in the United States.

The driver and all 42 undocumented immigrants, which included a total of three juveniles, were placed under arrest and transported to the Calexico station for further investigation.

Great job using ‘undocumented’ immigrants in the article. But shame on you for not changing ‘illegal’ to ‘undocumented’ in the title. They allegedly did an illegal ACT but HUMAN BEINGS are neither legal nor illegal. Imagine being so desperate for a better life that you cram yourself into a Closed trailer for hours with 41 other people just to get a job cutting your grass . Try a little compassion and empathy before wagging your faux patriotic outrage around. Try some of that Christian love that’s preached but only applies to people that look like you?
