Border Patrol discovers 33 immigrants locked inside tractor-trailer

    Updated 8:27 pm, Sunday, July 16, 2017

    On July 8, Laredo North Border Patrol agents assigned to the Border Patrol checkpoint on Interstate 35 encountered a tractor-trailer at the primary inspection lane.

    The driver was questioned regarding his immigration status and was referred to secondary for further inspection. A closer inspection of the tractor-trailer resulted in the rescue of 33 immigrants inside the locked trailer. Each was determined to be from the countries of Mexico and Guatemala. The driver, a U.S. citizen, was arrested.

    "These criminal organizations view these individuals as mere commodities without regard for their safety. The blatant disregard for human life will not be tolerated. We will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to disrupt and dismantle these organizations and prosecute those responsible," said Laredo Sector Assistant Chief Patrol Agent Gabriel Acosta.
