Smugglers’ Ploys Get More Elaborate

The Arizona Republic

TUCSON - U.S. Border Patrol Agent Louis Chavez watched the white “FedEx” van go by in the opposite direction on a road north of Nogales and couldn’t help but feel a little insulted.

The van’s windshield was cracked. The FedEx decal was lopsided. The driver, an undocumented immigrant, wasn’t even wearing a uniform.

“Do you think I’m a dummy or what?” Chavez thought to himself as he put on his lights and pulled out behind the suspected smuggler’s van.
