An illegal alien has been arrested after he assembled a roadblock to “stop traffic” in a remote region of Arizona, causing a motorist to crash over the weekend, authorities say.
The incident unfolded on Saturday near Ajo Station in Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector.
Agents were alerted about a man rolling rocks and boulders onto State Route 85 and when they arrived on scene, they discovered a driver who had reportedly struck the obstruction and suffered vehicle damage.
“Border Patrol agents apprehended a migrant from the Dominican Republic without immigration documents to be in the U.S. The subject was placed into custody and transported for processing,” Customs and Border Protection explained in a brief statement obtained by NewsNation correspondent Ali Bradley.
In response to speculation about a possible motive for the sabotage, Bradley said multiple sources confirmed it may have been a tactic to cause a “major accident” to pull “resources away from Border Patrol to move large groups” of illegal aliens into the U.S.
The incident comes amid full-blown chaos in Tucson Sector, which is now the busiest along the southern border by a substantial margin with more than 55,200 ‘encounters’ during the month of October – an increase of 140% over the same period in 2022.
The sector is currently averaging well over 2,000 apprehensions daily, along with many known and unknown ‘gotaways.’
Over the weekend, a single group of around 1,000 illegal aliens surged into Organ Pipe National Monument near Lukeville in Tucson Sector.
