Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents apprehended dozens of camouflage-wearing migrants attempting to sneak into the U.S. interior after crossing the border from Mexico. The arrests took place in multiple human smuggling incidents interdicted by agents near the border in Arizona.

Tucson Sector Chief Patrol Agent John Modlin tweeted multiple images from human smuggling interdictions that took place in the past ten days in his sector.

Wilcox Station agents conducted an immigration stop on I-10 on February 7. During the inspection, agents found four migrants wearing camouflage and dark clothing. Two of the migrants were found stuffed in the trunk of the sedan.

Agents arrested the two 16-year-old U.S. citizens on charges of smuggling migrants, Modlin reported.

Douglas Station agents also found a group of camo-wearing migrants allegedly being smuggled in an SUV, Modlin tweeted. During a records check agents determined the alleged smuggler is a convicted felon and registered sex offender. Modlin said the 30-year-old man now faces criminal smuggling charges.

The alleged smuggling incident took place at the Highway 191 immigration checkpoint. Agents found five migrants wearing camouflage packed in the SUV.

Three Points Station agents responded on February 6 to a sighting by surveillance camera operators regarding migrants illegally crossing the border, Chief Modlin tweeted. The agents utilized their sign-cutting training to track the migrants.

The motorcycle unit agents managed to track down the camouflage-wearing migrants and took them into custody near Vamori, Arizona.
