Illegal Immigrants Bail Out of Stolen Dump Trailer

 

EDINBURG, TX – Rio Grande Valley Sector Border Patrol (RGV) agents interdicted two illegal immigrant smuggling attempts within 24 hours.

On Nov. 8, a Kingsville Border Patrol Station agent observed a Chevrolet pickup truck towing a dump trailer heading west on a caliche road south of the Javier Vega Jr. U.S. Border Patrol Checkpoint. As an agent drove by the vehicle, he noticed multiple people in the cab of the truck. Without being prompted, the truck pulled to the side of the road and multiple subjects were seen fleeing into the nearby brush. 

The agent on scene apprehended four illegals and requested assistance. Additional agents and a Customs and Border Protection Air and Marine Operations helicopter assisted in 14 more apprehensions. The driver was not identified. The illegals taken into custody were identified as nationals from Central America and Mexico. The Chevrolet pickup truck was reported stolen out of Harris County (Houston) and the trailer did not have any identifiable registration. 

Later that evening, an RGV agent observed suspicious activity and attempted to conduct a vehicle stop on a blue Ford F150 north of Linn. The vehicle failed to yield and led the agent on a vehicle pursuit. The F150 veered off the road through a fence and came to a stop, where multiple people were observed fleeing. A search of the immediate area resulted in the apprehension of two illegal immigrants from Honduras. The driver was not located. 

All subjects were processed accordingly.

I'm sure the Border Patrol hate biden because of the border crisis he alone caused.

You got that right.  I overheard a person up the food chain with the Texas border patrol state that most if not all agents are pissed at ol crappy pants.
