Laredo Border Patrol Agents rescue 33 illegal aliens in tractor trailer

A supervisor for the U.S. Border Patrol killed a woman with whom he was romantically involved and her 1-year-old child before calling 911 claiming to have discovered the bodies near a park along the border with Mexico, Texas authorities said Tuesday.

Border Patrol Agents at the Interstate 35 checkpoint near Laredo encountered a tractor-trailer at the primary inspection lane yesterday, and sent the driver to secondary inspection after a Border Patrol canine alerted to the vehicle. Meanwhile, the New York Post reports the man attempted to re-enter the USA on April 19, 2017, when he was taken to the Mexican consulate.

The agents transported all 61 to the Yuma Station for processing. Many people illegally crossing into the United States are actually from Central America, and must be deported to their countries of origin, not Mexico.

In the video, the U.S, border agents eventually allowed the man to stay on the American side of the border, where they lost track of him for almost a month, until he was finally taken to be processed at the Mexican consulate.

"All of this is through the consulate", one Mexican official says.

"Well, I think he's Mexican". NBC News ended with a freeze frame noting that agents left the man in a park on the USA side of the border. It was "only then" that the man was "taken to be processed at the Mexican consulate, where it was determined he was in fact a Mexican national and had been arrested 16 times for illegal entry to the Arizona, Texas and California, the law enforcement source said".

Members of the U.S. Border Patrol listen as President Donald Trump speaks after inspecting border wall prototypes in San Diego on March 13.

But a recent survey by the American Immigration Council of 600 immigrants who were sent back to Mexico found that more than half of the respondents did not receive their repatriation documents and just as many were not asked if they feared returning home, the preliminary question for assessing asylum claims.
