Illegal aliens poured out of a pickup truck and fled into the night when a human smuggler was pulled over by police in South Texas, according to reports.
Dash cam footage released by the Texas Department of Public Safety (TxDPS) shows approximately a dozen migrants being transported in a Dodge Ram reportedly driven by an American citizen.
“A large group of illegal immigrants bail out of a human smuggler’s truck and flee in Del Rio, TX while being pulled over by TxDPS,” wrote Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin, who published the video on social media.
A woman presumed to be the driver can be seen approaching the TxDPS trooper.
“Why are you hauling illegals?” he asks her.
“They just asked me for a ride,” she replies.
“That’s a lot of rides,” the cop responds.
It is unclear how many, if any, of the migrants were apprehended.
Melugin posted footage from another pursuit and bailout in Texas last week.
“More than 20 illegal immigrants crammed into a fake/cloned work truck bail out and jump into the Rio Grande as their human smuggler is pursued by a TxDPS trooper and Border Patrol in Mission, TX in the RGV. Majority successfully swam back to Mexico,” Melugin reported at the time.
Border Patrol says more than 13,000 illegal aliens have crossed into Del Rio Sector in the past week alone, far outpacing activity in any other sector.
The revolution will not be televised.
