A new report shows border patrol agents are uncovering more smuggling attempts by illegals trying to sneak across the U.S.-Mexico border.
Since may of this year, border patrol agents have reportedly found more than 400 illegal immigrants in tractor-trailers in a total of 42 incidents involving human-smuggling.
Those smuggling attempts have been labeled by border patrol as “rescues,” due to the poor conditions inside the trucks.
The incidents have led to hospitalizations and in some cases even death.
