The illegal immigrants, 28-year-old Alfredo Mondono-Fonseca and a 16-year-old Mexican citizen were attempting to cross the Falfurrias Checkpoint with two women and a child.
Crystal Azua, her daughter and Erica Hernandez were inside the general area of the vehicle when they came to a stop at the checkpoint.
A Border Patrol agent, checking the identities of the three visible passengers, recognized Azua for two previous immigrant smuggling convictions.
Because he recognized her, the agent sent their car to the secondary inspection.
Thats when agents discovered the 28-year-old and the 16-year-old in the trunk.
Once inside for questioning, Azua admitted she had been arrested before for human smuggling.
She said her ex-boyfriend claimed he would take away their child if she did not smuggle for him.
Azua said she drove down from Houston with her daughter and Hernandez to pick up the two people at the Budget Inn in McAllen.

There were only two people in the trunk? I thought five was the minimum.
This is a laugh. Coupla small timers.
While they had her pulled over, probably ten trucks with their trailers crammed to the gills with people went by them.
Illegal immigration into the U.S. is not a little thing. This is thousands of people every day, month after month, year after year.
Leading to MILLIONS.
I bet that is a record!
