Dozens of illegal aliens were discovered in a storm drain in West Texas near the Mexican border this week, according to authorities.
On Wednesday, U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) apprehended a massive group caught entering the country illegally via drainage tunnels in the latest bust of its kind.
“USBP agents in El Paso, TX apprehended 70 undocumented subjects from a storm drain. These are subjects that were trying to avoid capture,” said USBP Chief Jason Owens in a statement on social media.
“What they didn’t know is how dangerous this tactic is. Toxic waste, suffocation, getting lost… Never trust a smuggler!”
Incredibly, the bust unfolded on the same day that InfoWars reporters were exposing how easily illegals and smugglers can pass through drainage tunnels connecting the U.S. and Mexico.
“This drainage goes all the way to the other side of the fence. There are no barbed wire protections on the other side. It is very easy to just crawl through this tunnel here and go into Mexico or back and forth as you please,” explained Chase Geiser.
Last week, Border Patrol rescued a pair of illegal aliens after they became trapped in a storm drain in Laredo.
Migrants and smugglers frequently use drains and tunnels to evade capture during illegal entries into the U.S.
Last month, border agents in El Paso Sector thwarted three such incursions involving 27 illegal aliens in one week.
