U.S. Border Patrol agents found almost 150 undocumented migrants along the El Paso, Texas, border Wednesday, KSIA reported. The agents found an initial 131 migrants crammed in the back of a tractor-trailer, according to Sector Chief Gloria Chavez, and discovered an additional 11 migrants in an SUV that was traveling alongside it. Chavez commended the agents’ work in “preventing a tragedy” from happening, but she noted that the work has become essential in the wake of criminal enterprises that traffic in human smuggling. “Criminal organizations continue to place human lives in danger,” Chavez said.
