Probably trying to beat the “amnesty” rush. Passage of Barry’s “amnesty” bill is going to start a stampede like America has never seen before. They’ll be seeing the dust cloud up all the way up in Canada.

That's it.

Problem solved.

How'd I do?

The groups caught are getting bigger. I am used to 15-20, but now they are approaching company strength.

It would have been a slaughter were that truck involved in a high speed crash.

Glad the police intervened.

When you overload a vehicle like that and try to drive over 30 Mph, it's going to fishtail. It's a good thing it didn't flip over in a ditch.

How many illegals can you get in a 26 footer?

Just out of curiosity, in a case like this, what will the border patrol do with these 67 illegals?

Not so good. The solution is a big fine to the rental agency.

In Seattle we had a kind of different twist on the illegal smuggling. Last week a man was rushed to the burn center with burns on 70% of his body after having been set on fire. This week it was learned that he had been set on fire by the Mexican coyotes who smuggled him into the country because he had not paid them the $6000 that the coyotes demanded for smuggling the victim and his girl friend into the country.

Hey, not everyday I get to see news on here from 30 miles north of my house! LOL. Dangerous situation there. To answer the question of the disposition of the illegals. They are taken to the processing center just outside Douglas and then bussed back to the crossing and herded across through the one-way turnstile.

That is a lot of illegals...guess they didn’t wear a path in the grass though as they crossed the border.

BP will process them, take them to the border, and send them back into Mexico, so they can try again.

“When deputies opened the back, they found 67 illegal immigrants inside. “

And they all think they’ll get amnesty...MORE on the way!
