It’s a sad sight to see the dozens of ways immigrants risk their lives attempting be smuggled across the U.S. border. An already dangerous journey turns into one that is almost impossible to survive. On Friday, the U.S. Border Patrol released devastating and shocking photos of four undocumented immigrants crammed together in a long tool box bed.
The photos, released by the New York Post, show the orange metal box encapsulating the men who clutch black garbage bags of their belongings. They are smashed together so tight, it’s almost impossible to tell where one human body begins and ends, with heads being the only identifying feature.
Agents made the discovery near Rio Grande City. In addition to the four men in the metal container, twelve additional immigrants were in the actual truck. Miraculously, none of the immigrants were injured, as U.S. officials note that such smuggling tactics have deadly consequences.
Over the years, media outlets have reported that the smuggling of immigrants “often end up being chased by Border Patrol agents, and law-enforcement agents in rural parts of the Texas border with Mexico.” There has been an increase in the high speed chases, leading to car crashes and fatalities; not only of the immigrants but also of innocent bystanders in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The Dallas Morning News reported last summer that “deadly crashes rise on Texas roads as smugglers cram more migrants into smaller vehicles.”

Enough is enough for Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott and his state’s suffering due to the Biden administration’s failure to secure the southern border. With no help from the federal government and the White House turning a blind eye to the migrant crisis, Abbott has decided to hire a “border czar.”
Governor Abbott announced that recently retired Border Patrol agent Mike Banks will be appointed “border czar” and work with the Texas National Guard and state troopers to find solutions to deter migrants from crossing the border illegally.
