Mexican Police Intercept 287 Migrants Who Were Heading For Texas

Via Breitbart:

“CIUDAD VICTORIA, Tamaulipas — Federal authorities intercepted two tractor-trailers with a total of 287 migrants stuffed inside under subhuman conditions. There were 107 minors, including an 18-month-old baby, and two children with chickenpox.

The interception and rescue took place this week in central Tamaulipas along the highway that connects Soto la Marina with La Coma, a route that eventually leads to the Texas border.

According to federal authorities, highway policemen carrying out routine patrols noticed two trucks traveling at high rates of speed in an unsafe manner. The cops tried to stop them, leading to a short chase. A short distance later, the drivers stopped and turned themselves in to authorities.

A group of migrants traveling in one of the tractor trailers attempted an escape from authorities by trying to break open the cargo area, but were unable. Authorities identified the drivers as Alejandro Sánchez Cuevas, 46, from Córdoba, Veracruz, and Jonathan Gabriel Domínguez León, 33, from Villa Hermosa, Tabasco. The group of 287 was made up in primarily of Guatemalan nationals with Salvadorans and Hondurans as well.

While checking the vehicles, it was discovered that three minors in the group had symptoms of chickenpox, leading to an immediate intervention by federal health authorities who set up a quarantine to prevent further spreading of the infection. After 24 hours, medics gave the all-clear and released the migrants to immigration authorities.

Mexico’s National Institute of Migration has since moved 274 migrants out of the original 287 to Veracruz. From there, they will be sent to their countries of origin. According to authorities, 107 are minors. A small group of 13 (4 children and 9 adults) were allowed to stay in the country since they had previously obtained humanitarian visas.”

“EDINBURG, Texas – Rio Grande City agents seized more than 950 pounds of marijuana in two separate incidents.

Sunday evening, Rio Grande City agents working near La Rosita, Texas, responded to a report of a vehicle involved in narcotics smuggling traveling north from the Rio Grande. Agents in the area located the vehicle and, shortly thereafter, the driver of the vehicle abruptly turned south and traveled towards the river. As agents approached the river, they observed the driver abandon the vehicle and swim to Mexico. Agents searched the vehicle and discovered 571 pounds of marijuana worth an estimated $457K.

A short while later, Rio Grande City agents on patrol received information of a narcotic smuggling attempt near Garciasville, Texas. As agents responded, they observed an All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) abruptly turn around and travel south towards the Rio Grande riverbank. Upon arrival, agents discovered the ATV abandoned carrying several bundles of marijuana. The marijuana weighed 387 pounds and is worth an estimated $310K. Agents searched for the ATV rider and additional narcotics to no avail.

The public is encouraged to take a stand against crime in their communities and report suspicious activity at 800-863-9382. ”

Good! Give him the maximum sentence!

CBP is reporting:

“EAGLE PASS, Texas – U.S. Border Patrol agents from the Eagle Pass station arrested a Mexican Mafia member during a failed human smuggling attempt, Oct. 2.

Agents assisted Maverick County Sheriff’s deputies on a traffic stop in Eagle Pass and discovered three illegal aliens concealed in the back seat of the vehicle. The driver and front-seat passenger, both U.S. citizens, and the three illegal aliens were arrested and taken to the Eagle Pass South Station for processing.

“We enjoy an excellent relationship with our local law enforcement partners” said Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz. “I applaud the Maverick County Sheriff’s Deputies and our agents, who worked together to stop a convicted felon from smuggling illegal aliens into our communities.”

The driver, identified as Juan Alberto Garcia, 39, is a self-admitted member of the Mexican Mafia and has an extensive criminal history. Garcia has multiple felony convictions throughout Texas for drug-related offenses and other crimes including assault, burglary and theft. He and the front-seat passenger will both be charged with 8 USC § 1324 – Alien Smuggling, and face up to 10 years in prison.

The illegal aliens apprehended, two from Ecuador and one Guatemalan national, will be processed in accordance with U.S. Customs and Border Protection guidelines.”
