President Joe Biden may be claiming victory at the southern border as the next presidential election cycle nears, but the crisis is far from over. The president’s open border policies have been short of disastrous, transforming parts of the border into a warzone as cartels fight over drug routes into the US. Cartels have also made big bucks by smuggling migrants into the US.
US Border Patrol officials revealed the crisis isn’t over this week. They announced this week human smugglers used “cloned FedEx delivery vans” to transport migrants in El Paso, Texas, according to a new report from the local newspaper El Paso Times.
On June 9, Border Patrol agents arrested four suspected smugglers, two from the US and two from Mexico, who operated three delivery vans full of migrants. Two of the vehicles were “cloned FedEx vans. Agents said 26 migrants from Mexico and Guatemala were found inside the three vehicles.
