Border Patrol Arrests Two Dreamers Trying To Smuggle In Illegals
U.S. Border Patrol agents recently made two separate arrests of juvenile recipients of the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program for attempting to smuggle illegal aliens across the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection, an agency within the Department of Homeland Security, on Thursday published a press release detailing the arrests of two so-called "Dreamers," illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as minors who receive legal protections under DACA, who are nationals from Guatemala and Mexico.

On October 4, 2017, Border Patrol agents arrested a juvenile attempting to smuggle two illegal aliens. Agents at the Border Patrol Checkpoint on Interstate Highway 35 encountered a passenger vehicle at the primary inspection lane. The driver was questioned regarding his immigration status and was referred for further inspection after a Border Patrol canine alerted to the presence of concealed humans and/or narcotics.

After further inspection, Border Patrol agents discovered two adult male subjects concealed in the trunk of the vehicle. An immigration inspection of the two subjects revealed that they were both from the country of Brazil. The driver, a juvenile, was identified as a National from the country of Guatemala and a recipient of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) in 2016. All subjects were processed for removal proceedings.
