More than 150 illegal immigrants were taken into custody in Texas in a 24-hour period over weekend following two alleged human smuggling attempts, authorities said Tuesday.

Both incidents happened near the U.S.-Mexico border town of Laredo, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which oversees the Border Patrol.

In the first incident, shortly after midnight last Friday, more than 50 illegal immigrants were found riding inside a gas tanker that was being pulled by a tractor-trailer in Texas, according to reports.

The alleged human smuggling attempt was thwarted at an inspection checkpoint along Highway 83 near Laredo after a Border Patrol canine detected something amiss, CBP said in a statement.

The occupants of the gas tanker were all Mexican nationals while the driver was a U.S. citizen, according to the agency. All were taken into custody.

The second incident occurred a few hours later, after a tractor-trailer approached a checkpoint along Interstate 35, the CBP said.

The driver allegedly disregarded a Border Patrol agent's instructions to approach a second inspection area, so agents chased the vehicle, pulled it over and found more than 100 illegal immigrants riding inside, according to CBP.

The suspects were from several countries, including Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, Ecuador and the Dominican Republic, authorities said.

Again, the driver was a U.S. citizen and all were taken into custody.

CBP advised that anyone with information about human smuggling in the Laredo area should call 1-800-343-1994.

The legendary Laredo, now just another stop along the cartel's human smuggling route.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. What the MSM won't tell the general public is that are just as many if not more get across that do not get caught! That is certainly the case in my neck of the border in Cochise County in the SE corner of the AZ/New Mexico/Mexico border.

I don't know if one could say a lot are slipping by. I am sure some are. I know the local media posts photos of some with known criminal records that are apprehended. The multiple distinctive facial tattoos are pretty much a giveaway that they are MS 13 members.

I'm guessing millions but then I'm a 'libtard' so it must be billions.

The unknown is damning, isn't it?  Perhaps we shouldn't have elected Joe Biden?
