YUMA, Ariz. Suspected smugglers who tried to use ramps to drive an SUV over a 14-foot-tall border fence had to abandon their plan when the Jeep became stuck on top of the barrier, authorities said Wednesday.

The vehicle was perched about five miles west of the Colorado River and the Arizona state line.
Two smugglers on the Mexican side of the border were trying to free the Jeep when the agents approached, Tippets said. They ran further into Mexico and escaped.

More than likely a stolen Jeep.
Probably one of those Chinese built ones being snuck in without paying the duty LMAO.
Did the thought never enter their mind that the Jeep could get “high-centered” or did they try to “jump it” and failed?
Hey! what’s wrong with these guys? They seized the jeep? I thought their job was to help illegals get over the fence to vote for Obama!
Don’t you just *hate* it when that happens?
You’d never see General Lee get stuck like that.
Where’s the video of the crane lifting the Jeep off the fence?
Those ramps are impressive. I’d like tp have a set to ford streams.
Of all the things I’ve lost, I miss my mind the most.
Maybe they were trying to be the Mexican version of Evel Knievel.

People could be injured or killed doing this, just as they could by entering the US in dangerous desert areas. The US must position several emergency ramps so that innocent humans don’t end up dead or injured. After all, we position emergency water stations in desert areas for illegal aliens, don’t we?
Of course, the ramps are only - ONLY - to be used for emergencies. Any violation of this will be sternly viewed.
And they said a fence would not work.
I'm sure EPA,PETA or whatever idiot org., makes those stupid requirements will JUMP right onto your suggestions.
ROFL. (ewww, I just saw I made a pun up there)
Thank you. My thoughts exactly.
