VIDEO: Children dropped over border barrier to distract agents from illegal crossers

Savvy smugglers in Mexico are using young children as decoys to distract U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents and move people and drugs into the country, a serious problem illustrated in a video posted to Twitter on Monday.

The video, posted by CBP San Diego, shows exactly how it’s done, and why a bigger, better barrier could make a big difference.

“Last night, a human smuggler dropped two young Salvadoran girls, 6 and 9, from the aging border barrier behind concertina wire,” the post read. “As agents vacated their patrol positions in response, 10 people crossed illegally nearby. They eluded capture.”
