Human smuggler, five illegals caught being transported in a requested Uber

An Uber driver was caught in the middle of a human smuggling incident when he was requested via the app to pick up a client at one location, and simply drop them off at another.

The two locations requested by the client were parking lots near the Rio Grande. While driving the passengers, the driver was pulled over for a simple traffic violation.

However, “During a roadside interview, the trooper determined that the five passengers in the rear seat and cargo area were Mexican illegal immigrants” reports Fox News.

Fox News added that authorities said transnational criminal organizations have been expanding their reach and their smuggling methods as they seek to get more illegal immigrants into the U.S.

“Criminal Smuggling Organizations have been able to expand their criminal enterprise and further exploit illegal immigrants for profit,” Texas DPS said in a statement. “Human smuggling has increased drastically, and criminals are advancing their smuggling methods involving vehicles, commercial trucks, trains, planes, and ride shares involving Uber. Human smuggling is a multibillion-dollar trade and more profitable than drug smuggling.”

In a statement, Uber said human trafficking and smuggling are “global issues with devastating impacts on communities.”

“Rideshare is not immune to these societal challenges, which is why we continue to do our part to raise awareness through education which can help drivers spot the signs of human trafficking and report it,” a spokesperson said. “Also, drivers can cancel trips if they feel unsafe, and we have a dedicated Public Safety Team ready to assist law enforcement with their investigation.”

Sara Carter joined Fox News’ Primetime ‘Jesse Watters’ show to discuss “how heartbreaking” the tragedies occurring at the southern border are. Speaking for those who cannot, Carter goes in depth as to her discoveries of human smuggling stories at the border.

Carter witnessed it all first hand, when she was given the opportunity to join a “multi-agency human smuggling sting.” The sting, Carter says, showed her the significant lack of control that the Biden administration has over the border crisis.

Carter agrees with the assessment that Biden is the “trafficker-in-chief.” Over 130,000 children entered shelters in the United States in the last fiscal year alone, explains Carter. And that “doesn’t include all the children who disappeared on the journey here” or those who have gone missing inside the country.

Carter says she hopes the Biden administration is watching, as they are responsible “for every child that gets murdered, that gets taken” and abused in child or sexual slavery if they don’t change their course of action.
