Authorities in a Texas border county intercepted a whopping 19 human smuggling attempts during a single weekend, according to reports.
Additionally, hundreds of illegal aliens were apprehended in the vicinity by Border Patrol agents during the same period.
“Between County Deputies, the Galveston Crew, and the Department of Public Safety, more than 19 different loads of illegal aliens were encountered and caught,” the Kinney County Sheriff’s Office revealed in a statement.
The slew of busts unfolded across a 48-hour span on April 30 and May 1.
Two significant encounters were explained in further detail.
“In one, Deputy Andres Frias spotted what he thought was a group of 3 or 4 [migrants] on the side of the road,” the sheriff’s office said.
“After turning around to check on them, he says he was quickly surrounded by 42, most from Central America — with some Haitians — all wanting to turn themselves in to Border Patrol.”
During another bust, a human smuggler led authorities on a dangerous high speed chase in a truck packed with 22 illegal aliens.
The fleeing driver crashed through multiple fences before finally stopping.
Agents found eight children under the age of 13 inside the vehicle, including an 8-month-old baby.
“The border is out of control. We cannot control this invasion. The Kinney County Sheriff’s Office is on the brink of [losing] control,” Sheriff Brad Coe warned in comments shared by reporter Ali Bradley.
“It’s time the Federal Government took control of the border. The state and local authorities cannot sustain this level of enforcement and protection of our country.”
