In an amazing moment of timing, a television news crew captured a video of two men scaling the fence along the Mexican border in Arizona, allegedly smuggling drugs.
Covering a separate story, the Spanish-speaking reporter and her crew spotted the men climbing over the fence in Nogales, reported Fox News. Two men carrying packs that appeared to be bales of marijuana scaled the fence and took off onto the Arizona street before realizing they were being filmed.
“No graben!” (Don’t record!) one of the men yelled at the cameraman, shaking a finger while he kept a phone or walkie-talkie up to his ear. Apparently abandoning their operation, the two ran back to the fence and climbed back over while the news crew continued to capture the entire incident.
Nearby border patrol agents never saw the men, the reporter pointed out.
In the battle for the border that has fueled debate in the 2016 presidential race, the labor union representing nearly 17,000 U.S. Border Patrol agents announced it is backing Republican candidate Donald Trump. The move is unprecedented as the National Border Patrol Council has never before endorsed a candidate.
The council’s president, Brandon Judd, said that after vetting the candidates, Trump was clearly their choice.
“Donald Trump has the strongest position on the border and he’s always had the strongest position,” Judd said on “Fox and Friends,” adding that it was Trump who “brought this issue to the forefront” and has been the one “continuously talking” about border security.
As for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s remarks that agents have done a good job securing the border, Judd said, “I promise you, Hillary is not right.”
“All you have to do is look at the numbers as far as how many arrests we make, how many get-aways there are,” he said, including how many people from other countries enter illegally, “those numbers are way up.”
