    Laredo, Texas May 28, 2008 – Border Patrol agents from the Laredo North station disrupted a human smuggling attempt and rescued 51 people today.

    At about 2:30 a.m, agents working at the Border Patrol checkpoint north of Laredo conducted an immigration inspection of the driver of a tractor trailer. As an agent talked to the driver a Border Patrol canine alerted on the trailer, indicating the presence of hidden contraband or people.

    Agents opened the sealed trailer and found 51 people sitting atop and among crates of avocados. They were all identified as illegal aliens from Mexico. The group included three children, ages 5, 10 and 16. The temperature inside the refrigerated trailer was 57 degrees.

    The driver was turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

    To report suspicious activity such as drug and/or alien smuggling, contact the Laredo Sector Border Patrol toll free telephone number at 1-800-343-1994.

    Once again is this truck part of Bush's pilot truck program?
    Who owned the truck and was it seized?

    51 illegal aliens is a small village--were they simply returned to Mexico?
