21 immigrants detained after police chase ends with crash
There’s an old joke that goes something like: How do you get 20 Black guys into a car? Throw a welfare check inside…This story is similar, but instead, the welfare check is replaced by “illegal” immigrant pass. 21 Illegals in a similar car to the one below….reminds me of South Africa and the Black taxis there!
LA JOYA — Authorities detained 21 suspected undocumented immigrants after a police chase ended with a crash Monday evening.
A La Joya police officer attempted to stop a GMC Suburban on a traffic violation along Expressway 83 about 8:40 p.m. Monday, said Officer Joe Cantu, a department spokesman.
Police followed the vehicle east on the expressway to the Goodwin Road exit, where the pursuit led to the frontage road, Cantu said. The pursuit ended when the SUV crashed into a concrete pillar beneath an expressway overpass.
Three of the 21 illegal immigrants inside the Suburban were transported to an area hospital for treatment. The suspected smuggler apparently fled the scene on foot.
Those detained are natives of Mexico, Guatemala and El Salvador, police said. They were turned over to U.S. Border Patrol agents.
