There are numerous ways illegal aliens have crossed the border into America. In Texas, hundreds daily swim the Rio Grande River to work and return the same way bringing their earnings back to Mexico. Many illegals are brought across the border by drug cartels, thousands have been smuggled in cars and trucks, others travel through elaborate underground tunnels.
However, vehicular smuggling took on a new look when Texas Border Patrol agents pulled over a nearly identical vehicle to their own. Human traffickers had painted a Chevy Tahoe to look like the ones used by the Border Patrol. They stripped out the back seats and crammed 12 illegals in the back.
Border Patrol Agent Omar Zamora, who works in the Rio Grande Valley sector, told the local news:
“There’s no fender, there’s no ground effect on any of our vehicles. They’re actually pretty bare and about as high as we get the vehicle, because we do go off road.
“In the 18 years that I’ve been in the Border Patrol, we’ve seen UPS, FedEx trucks, Time Warner trucks, any kind of clones. Any business you can think of. The smugglers are trying to clone it to avoid law enforcement detection.”
Despite Obama’s claims, the border is not secure. Hundreds of illegals cross the Texas border daily, and only a small percentage are caught.
Until the border is secure and protected by Border Patrol and U.S. military forces, illegal aliens, including terrorists, will continue to contrive ways to cross the open border, even going so far as to use fake government vehicles.
