MEXICALI, BC - Two Mexicans were arrested on the outskirts of Calexico, discovered while they illegally bringing five people into United States territory.

It all began when, during lunch hours, border patrol agents discovered a green Dodge Ram van, with six individuals. Immediately, U.S. officers began pursuing the unit, who refused to stop, despite the request by the guards.

Finally, thanks to support from other border patrol members, the vehicle was stopped and its occupants were searched. It was found that six individuals did not have required documents in the neighboring country.

Five of the seven men were referred to immigration authorities, with the aim of being deported back to Mexico, due to having no papers. Meanwhile, the driver of the van, 55, who has a permanent residence card, was assured that he faced indictment for trafficking human beings.

Another subject of Mexican nationality and who has illegal immigration status, was also arrested to face responsibility for the same offense, if not also deported.
