Border Patrol catches smuggler using fake agency vehicle

by  |  published on December 14, 2015

Texas authorities are on high alert after Border Patrol agents caught an alleged smuggler trying to disguise its SUV as one of the agency’s vehicles, officials said Friday.

Border Patrol agents caught a smuggler driving a Chevy Tahoe that was painted to look like one of the agency’s vehicle, according to KRGV-TV. Vehicles are usually painted to act as delivery or telecommunications trucks to try and fool agents, but it’s unusual to see a Border Patrol vehicle to be copied.

Border Patrol in Laredo found 12 people stuffed in the back of the imposter vehicle. Agents knew the vehicle was a fake as soon as they found it.

    Dear bobnstuff if you are not on the no fly list I would understand because they do not go against one of their own. I would say the FBI is watching you but we all know that is a joke.

    Last year the President asked for funds to hire more border agents and the Congress turned him down. Our borders are the most secure they have ever been and if Congress would like to act they could been even more secure. Don’t blame Obama for things he has tried to get fixed. Our laws on immigration are a joke but until new ones are passed not much can be done. There is only so much the President can do with EO’s, the Congress needs to get to work fixing problems instead of holding hearings with no results, Where is the immigration reform act? Where is the VA reform act? Where is the Tax reform Act? The republicans are so busy trying to repeal the ACA and nail Hillary the seem to forget what their job really is. The SCOTUS and the President are creating laws because the Congress can’t be bothered.

      Bob bob bob. Our laws on immigration have not been enforced how would you know if they are a joke
      and I agree it is both parties that are having a party and doing nothing other than the wrong thing. I will vote for Trump, no matter what. He is what he is and is not ashamed of it. The blast of common sense he has brought has not been seen in a very long time in politics, if ever.

        Have you looked at the laws? If you are here illegally the crime is the same level as a speeding ticket, if you jumped the border and the government proves the fact in court you can get up to 6 months in jail and a $250 fine. If you are not from Mexico you must be given a hearing which could take up to two years to happen. ICE only has 20,000 employees to protect our borders round up illegals and handle customs. When asked for more money to do the job congress said no. In other words the law can not be enforced.

          The point is that the border is suppose to be closed. 1st question who makes those laws you say are 6 months for crossing illegally. Hell 1 question is enough at this time. It all comes back to the politicians. They make the laws, they break the laws and we pay. Close the border and then we can talk. Really. Close the border and have them all enter legally. Bob you should try sneaking into Mexico and see what type of welcome you get there.

            It come back to congress. They are the ones that pass the laws or should I say don’t pass the laws. Last year we had a very good bill in congress that the senate pass with support from both parties and the house didn’t even take up. The borders will never be 100% closed, can’t be done at any price. They could be made safer though if congress wanted them to be. The conservatives in congress make a lot of noise but do very little. The present laws were passed under Reagan with a little tweaking under Bush. Border protection was part of it but no one has bothered doing anything about it. You can’t blame Obama for this one, he has done more then anyone since Ike.

    My bet is that NONE of the occupants will be found to be dangerous, just poor people trying to better themselves. A “reverse false flag” to show how safe we are, so we can continue our illegal open borders.
