CBP: 2 truck drivers charged with transporting 32 migrants across US

TUCSON – Two truck drivers are being charged for allegedly trying to smuggle 32 migrants across the United States in a refrigerated semi-trailer.

According to Tucson Sector Border Patrol, the semi was sent to secondary inspection after a K9 alerted to the trailer.

“In secondary inspection the truck and trailer were “x-rayed” showing numerous people locked in the rear of the trailer,” according to a news release.

When agents opened the trailer they reportedly discovered 32 individuals inside.

Tucson Sector BP says the individuals were “also ill prepared to be in 47-degree refrigerated trailer as most were wearing short t-shirts.”
