Law Enforcement Agents Discover Nearly 200 Illegal Aliens in Stash Houses Close to the Border
In a disturbing case of human trafficking, Laredo Sector Border Patrol agents arrested over 180 migrants in three human smuggling stash houses Tuesday. According to Bob Price of Breitbart News, “The arrests came in raids on three residences in the Laredo, Texas, area within hours of each other on May 4.”
Laredo South Border Patrol Station agents and the Laredo Special Operations Detachment (SOD) worked in tandem with ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) agents and Webb County Constables Office (WCCO) Precinct 2 deputies to investigate a suspected human smuggling stash house in central Laredo, accordion to information Breitbart was able to acquire from Laredo Sector Border Patrol officials.
The authorities carried out a welfare check on the suspected stash house and discovered 68 migrants who illegally entered the US. On that same day, Laredo South Station agents were informed about a second human smuggling operation at a house in south Laredo.
In this instance, the law enforcement team arrived on the scene and found 50 more migrants crammed inside of the residence. In the end, the law enforcement officials found 65 migrants.
After their raids on the stash houses, the law enforcement team arrested over 180 migrants, which all had an illegal presence in the US. According to the law enforcement officials, the migrants were identified as nationals hailing from El Salvador, Guatemala. and Mexico.
“All of the people rescued from these Stash Houses were being held against their will,” Laredo Sector Deputy Chief Patrol Agent Carl E. Landrum recounted in a written statement. “Human Smuggling/Trafficking are dangerous situations. Please help others by reporting suspicious situations you see; you just might save a life.”
The immigration status quo is a nasty business rife with drug and human trafficking that serves to destabilize the US. If the US were serious nation, not an incompetent polity, it would be putting border security and immigration restriction as policies priorities.
The current ruling class is unwilling to take up that mantle, so America First candidates will have to step up to the plate and take the control in DC to make things right.
