Chinese Migrants Caught by Immigration Officers in New Mexico


Five Chinese migrants were apprehended attempting to illegally cross over the border near New Mexico, according to Border Patrol officials.

The illegals from China were part of a large number of illegals apprehended from a list of foreign countries, Breitbart News reported.

Other nations the illegals came from include Cuba, Ecuador, and other Central American nations.

Agents at the Lordsburg and Las Cruces Stations, for instance, pulled over a driver on September 25, but not before he led officers on a high-speed, 10-mile chase. Once apprehended, the driver — a U.S. citizen — was found to have four Mexican nationals in his car attempting to sneak into the U.S.

The U.S. citizen was arrested and charged with human smuggling. The illegals were detained for deportation.

That same day, at the Las Cruces station, another car driven by a U.S. citizen was stopped by officers. In the man’s car were two Mexicans attempting to illegally enter the country.

Meanwhile, at the Santa Teresa Station, officers discovered the five Chinese nationals trying to sneak into the U.S.

These apprehensions were made, the government says, because fewer illegal immigrant families have been entering in the area freeing officers to get back on patrol.

“Incidents such as those detailed here, are a great example of the outstanding work the men and women of U.S. Border Patrol do each and every day,” said Interim El Paso Sector Chief Gloria Chavez. “Through community engagement we further strengthen our border communities and make them safer every day.”
