LAREDO, Texas (AP) - Authorities say a semitrailer motive force is in custody after he used to be discovered to be transporting 76 immigrants in Texas.
The U.S. Border Patrol mentioned in a observation Monday that the immigrants have been found out Friday at a checkpoint on U.S. 83, about 35 miles (56 kilometers) north of Laredo in South Texas. The semitrailer stopped in the checkpoint’s number one lane the place the motive force, a U.S. citizen, used to be puzzled about his immigration standing.
His rig used to be stored for additional inspection, and brokers discovered the immigrants inside the trailer.
The immigrants are from Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. Thirteen have been unaccompanied minors. The Border Patrol says they all are in just right well being.
