13 unaccompanied minors among 76 found in semi at Border Patrol stop
Authorities say a semitrailer driver is in custody after he was found to be transporting 76 immigrants in Texas.From this, we can see that DACA is not going to solve the problem. It is likely to increase the number of unaccompanied minors being brought into the US. This is not a migration that can be stopped with a fence alone. These trucks need to be inspected and X-rayed at the border.
The U.S. Border Patrol said in a statement Monday that the immigrants were discovered Friday at a checkpoint on U.S. 83, about 35 miles (56 kilometers) north of Laredo in South Texas. The semitrailer stopped in the checkpoint's primary lane where the driver, a U.S. citizen, was questioned about his immigration status.
His rig was kept for further inspection, and agents found the immigrants inside the trailer.
The immigrants are from Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. Thirteen were unaccompanied minors. The Border Patrol says all of them are in good health.
