Apparently, the smuggling of illegal aliens happens quite frequently… at a financial price AND a physical price…
According to Breitbart:
In August, sheriff’s office deputies in Refugio County, Texas, found 34 migrants locked in the suffocating heat of a locked U-Haul truck approximately 180 miles north of the Texas-Mexico border. The “human cargo” included some unaccompanied minors.
Y’all couldn’t keep the bottom of the roll-up door cracked, even just a smidge?
Laredo Sector agents also found smugglers using a U-Haul, this time to smuggle 27 migrants in the scorching heat.
The inside of the truck was reportedly around 107 degrees. I don’t care how delicious the cookies smell, I ain’t crawling inside my oven to get closer to them.
In June, Big Bend Sector agents found 33 migrants locked in a U-Haul near Van Horn, Texas. At least 12 of the migrants had to be transported to a local hospital for heat-related illness.
