Illegal immigrants being smuggled into US causes deadly crash when driver refused to stop

Democrats who fight all attempts to improve US immigration laws or build a wall to help limit illegal immigration routinely ignore how dangerous our porous southern border actually is.

And the poor migrants Democrats claim they care about continue to die, as was seen last week when three illegal aliens died and seven others were seriously injured in a crash on the California side of the US-Mexico border, according to a press release from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

The driver, identified as an American citizen by Border Patrol, was trying to smuggle the illegal immigrants into the country Thursday in a pickup truck.

Border Patrol caught up to the vehicle after discovering tire tracks near the border and the driver tried to flee.

Fox News reported that witnesses said the truck was weaving recklessly through traffic at speeds up to 100 mph.

After deploying a spike strip, the truck lost control and rolled over.

The crash occurred on westbound I-8 about 60 miles east of San Diego, and a woman and two men were killed, according to authorities.

California Highway Patrol spokesman Officer Travis Garrow said the female was in the cab of the truck and nine men were laying unrestrained in the bed.

It’s not clear if the illegal immigrants were part of the invading migrant caravan that stormed the southern border last week.

The driver is in police custody and could face vehicular manslaughter charges.

A car reportedly traveling with the pickup was later found in the driveway of a home and 12 people suspected of smuggling in illegal immigrants were arrested, Fox News reported.
