An audacious smuggling attempt was thwarted at the US-Mexico border recently, when a pickup truck, disguised as a US Customs and Border Protection vehicle, was caught carrying 17 migrants. The phony Border Patrol truck was spotted by sharp-eyed Mexican officials, who quickly notified their American counterparts. The migrants on board were safely transferred to authorities in Tijuana, while the smugglers found themselves in hot water. This disturbing incident is the latest in a series of attempts by human traffickers to deceive law enforcement using counterfeit vehicles, including other cloned CBP trucks and even bogus FedEx vans. Authorities attribute these dangerous tactics to ruthless cartels, desperate to profit from vulnerable individuals seeking a better life.
