(Tony Sifert, Headline USA) In light of the recent discovery of 46 dead trafficked migrants in a tractor-trailer in a San Antonio neighborhood, it is worth revisiting a recent U.S. Customs and Border Protection report that detailed how smugglers use social media to lure youths to serve as drivers.
At least 42 people found dead in 18-wheeler on San Antonio, multiple sources report — this carnage is the direct result of Biden’s aiding and abetting of human trafficking and the destruction of our border. Impeachable, in the least. https://t.co/StWnNbMkLx

The report, which was produced by the Rio Grande Valley Sector Border Patrol, reveals that smuggling operations — what it calls Transnational Criminal Organizations — are now using children as young as 13 to traffic illegal aliens across the border.
“The result is an increase in erratic driving by inexperienced drivers, often observed exceeding posted speed limits, and driving against oncoming traffic,” Border Patrol reported.
Chief Patrol Agent Brian Hastings warned parents of both the dangers of social media and the seriousness of the resulting crimes.
“This is an alarming trend, because many of these teenagers underestimate the severity of the crime,” Hastings said. “Not only can they be prosecuted and sent to jail, but they also endanger lives through their actions.”
It is becoming increasingly obvious that controlling the United States’ border with Mexico is a matter of life and death.
This is the direct result of policy. The current administration doesn’t give a damn. The oligarchs don’t give a damn. They have an unquenchable thirst for cheap, illegal labor and they will make it happen no matter what the consequence to America or illegal immigrants themselves. https://t.co/BLrjrU6zta

The Biden-Harris Administration is eager to promote its own efforts at regulating illegal fishing, but it shows no similar willingness to address the crisis at the border.
While leftist Democrats like Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke and Rep. Joaquin Castro attempt to deflect blame from their own party, Fox News reporter Bill Melugin reminded readers that Homeland Security chief Alejandro Mayorkas has claimed to have “operational control” over the border.
As at least 46 migrants are found dead in a trailer in a suspected human smuggling incident in San Antonio, this is happening a couple of hours away in Eagle Pass, as hundreds are crossing illegally right now.
