SIERRA BLANCA, Texas -- U.S. Border Patrol agents this past week encountered a large human smuggling scheme off Interstate 10 at the immigration checkpoint near Sierra Blanca.
Twenty undocumented migrants were discovered in both the bed of a truck, covered by a hard plastic cover that was sealed shut.
Plus, there were even more in what appeared to be a U-Haul trailer that could only be opened from the outside, with no source of ventilation or space to move freely.
Two undocumented migrant children were also found in the trailer.
A Customs and Border Protection canine alerted agents to further inspect the vehicle, which ultimately led to the human smuggling discovery.
