Border Patrol arrests 37 illegal aliens at Texas checkpoint

Border Patrol agents discovered 37 aliens hidden in a tractor trailer at the Interstate 35 checkpoint

Laredo Sector Border Patrol conducting checkpoint operations on Interstate Highway 35 apprehended 37 subjects Tuesday evening.

The incident occurred on October 16, at approximately 8:30 p.m., when agents encountered a tractor-trailer at the primary inspection area.  An immigration inspection of the driver determined he was U.S. citizen.

Agents referred the vehicle for further inspection, and discovered 37 subjects concealed in the trailer.  Immigration inspections determined that all the subjects in the trailer were illegal aliens.  All were found to be in good health.
