14 immigrants found stuffed inside semi cab


More than a dozen migrants were discovered inside of a semi truck cab during a routine inspection at the border last week. 

The incident happened on the morning of November 11th at the Interstate 35 checkpoint in Laredo, Texas. 

According to San Angelo Live, a service canine alerted to the possible presence of contraband during a routine inspection, so the rig was referred to secondary inspection. During the secondary inspection, a total of 14 migrants from Mexico and Guatemala were found stuffed inside of the semi truck cab. 

All of the migrants and the truck driver were arrested and processed accordingly. 

The Laredo Sector Border Patrol encourages anyone who sees something suspicious to report it by contacting our 24/7 hotline at 1-800-343-1994.
