Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents observed a red SUV driving over an outdated border barrier to cross from Mexico into Arizona on Monday. The migrants used a vehicle ramp to dive over the fencing bars.

Tucson Sector Chief Patrol Agent John Modlin posted photos on X showing a makeshift vehicle ramp used by the driver of a red Dodge SUV to cross over an outdated border barrier.

Agents assigned to the Three Points Station observed the crossing and stopped the vehicle as it attempted to flee. The agents arrested five migrants who entered the U.S. illegally between ports of entry.

The ramp shows how easily human smugglers can exploit this section of the border and make entry into Arizona. The barrier is only three to five feet high.

Elsewhere in the sector, Wilcox Station agents rescued a group of migrants who were locked in the trunk of a Nissan sedan. A K-9 team found the migrants when the dog alerted to the trunk area of the vehicle, Modlin reported.

During the past week, Tucson Sector agents also interdicted additional human smuggling attempts where the alleged smugglers were armed with pistols.

As the massive migrant surge in the Tucson Sector continues to subside, agents are back to patrolling the border and highways to stop migrants not wanting to surrender from successfully making their way into the U.S. interior.

For the past few weeks, migrant apprehensions in the Tucson Sector fell to below 7,000 per week for the first time in several months, Modlin reported on X.

In March, Tucson Sector agents apprehended approximately 42,000 migrants. This was down from the nearly 50,000 apprehended in February. Tucson agents encountered approximately 342,000 migrants during the first six months of Fiscal Year 24, which began on October 1, 2023.
