Nearly 80 Illegals Pulled From Trucks, Stash House During Smuggling Busts

Dozens of illegal aliens were apprehended during multiple busted smuggling operations near the southern border over a span of three days, according to authorities.

On June 4, Texas Department of Public Safety (TxDPS) troopers pulled over a suspicious big rig on I-35 in Webb County.

During a search, troopers found 19 illegal aliens from Mexico hiding inside the cab of the truck.

The driver, as well as the driver of a Dodge Ram that was escorting the tractor-trailer, were both arrested and charged with smuggling of persons.

On June 6, Border Patrol’s El Paso Sector Chief Anthony Good announced that agents had discovered 32 illegal aliens hiding in a box truck at a checkpoint in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

The driver, a Mexican national whose legal status in the U.S. is unclear, faces smuggling charges.

Also on June 6, authorities smashed a human smuggling ring operating a stash house in Bexar County, TX.

A total of 26 illegal aliens were found at the stash house, 12 of whom required hospitalization for injuries and heat-related illnesses.

“Through the course of the investigation, deputies made several traffic stops on multiple suspects seen leaving the property and arrested these suspects who were connected with maintaining a stash house and ultimately for engaging in organized crime,” the Bexas County Sheriff’s Office explained in a statement.

Seven suspects were apprehended and booked into Bexar County Jail.
