You have to commend Texas for taking back control of their border crisis after VP Kamala Harris and sleepy Joe Biden abandoned them to be swallowed up in crime and an overwhelmed public system. Texas’s US Customs and Border Protection services can take a victory lap this week after they managed to pick up at least 100 illegal immigrants hiding in a smuggler’s stash house in Laredo Texas.
“In a joint law enforcement effort, Laredo Sector Border Patrol, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), and Laredo Police Department (LPD) worked together to shut down an alleged stash house that contained a large group of individuals being guarded by smugglers in south Laredo.
The incident occurred during the morning of June 10 when over 100 undocumented individuals were found inside the alleged stash house. The individuals were identified as nationals of Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Ecuador, and Nicaragua.
All the undocumented individuals were taken into custody for further investigation. None of the individuals were wearing any personal protective equipment (PPE) and all were medically screened.
The smuggling and housing of large groups of individuals in stash houses has not been deterred by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Stash house incidents such as this pose a threat not only to the people exploited by human smuggling but also to the people and safety of our Nation.
Take a stand against these criminal organizations and other potentially dangerous acts by reporting suspicious activity in our neighborhoods. To report suspicious activity such as alien and/or drug smuggling, download the “USBP Laredo Sector” App or contact the Laredo Sector Border Patrol toll free at 1-800-343-1994. If you see something, say something.”
After taking down the filthy stash house, the US Border Patrol Laredo Sector also wrote a message on their Facebook:
“None of the individuals that were taken into custody were wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) when found. Even with a threat of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases, human smugglers continue to place individuals in close quarters without PPE. This not only endangers the people being smuggled, but the safety of our Nation.
The cooperation between our local law enforcement partners in our communities continue to have a great impact to criminal element, making our communities safer. Help us to take a stand against these criminal organizations and potentially dangerous acts by reporting suspicious activity in our neighborhoods.”
