This is absolutely insane.

Amid the ongoing border crisis, disturbing revelations about potential drug smuggling have emerged. 

On Tuesday (April 12), Texas border agents said they encountered a group of illegal immigrants trying to smuggle marijuana into the country. Among the smugglers was a 4-year-old boy.

According to a press release from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the value of the marijuana seized is $93,000.

The incident took place after midnight on Tuesday, when the Rio Grande Valley Sector Border Patrol (RGV) and Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) noticed a group crossing the U.S.-Mexico border near Roma, Texas.

The CBP noted that some in the group were witnessed carrying bundles that officers believed to be marijuana. They were also loading these bundles onto a Ford Expedition in the area, which had commonly been used to smuggle drugs and pick up illegal immigrants.

When agents approached the vehicle, the occupants fled into the bush. On inspection of the vehicle, officers found two bundles of marijuana with a weight of 116 pounds and a street value of $93,000.

Following a search of the bush, they apprehended thirteen illegal immigrants, including a 4-year-old boy and his mother who were from Guatemala; others in the group came from Central America, the Dominican Republic, and Mexico.

This incident comes as President Joe Biden announced that Trump-era Title 42 would be ending, which prompted Texas Governor Greg Abbott to implement stricter controls along the Southern border to prevent a sudden influx.
