KENEDY COUNTY, Texas — A tractor-trailer driver is accused of attempting to smuggle 18 people into the U.S. illegally after a traffic stop on Monday, Dec. 26 along U.S. 77 in Kenedy County, Texas.
Officers with the Texas Department of Public Safety arrested Osvaldo Garza Saavedra after discovering nine adult men, eight adult women and one juvenile during a stop for a traffic violation.
Fox News reports that Garza Saavedra did not have a driver’s license or proper documentation to operate a commercial vehicle.
Garza Saavedra was asked by officers if there were people inside the truck or trailer during the initial stop, to which he replied: “No.”
He then gave officers consent to search the truck. During the search, troopers found 18 people hiding underneath a blue tarp inside the trailer.
Garza Saavedra was arrested and charged with human smuggling and the smuggling of minors. After his arrest, he was taken to Kleberg County jail, where he was released on the evening of Tuesday, Dec. 27.
The 18 people who had entered the country illegally were turned over to the U.S. Border Patrol.

Since we are arresting people for bringing in illegal aliens into the country,when will we arrest the Fook Bideb administration for his treasonous disregard of our national security? I mean they arrested this sombich,Fook Biden is providing the means to bring in hundreds of thousands of new democrats,who will turn into millions when it s all said and done.
Arrest the sombich I say.
This dude is stupid. what has Biden got to do with the trucker smuggling illegal aliens.
Fifteen years ago all we heard about was the children of illegals who were brought into this country and grew up here. twenty thousand were considered a problem then. This wannabe trucker brings 18 people into the country and gets arrested and will probably do some time in jail or prison. The the 18 people will be like human cockroaches hiding out in the cracks and crevices of American society. In 15 years we will have another set of “dreamers”. They will start the cycle over with then being hundreds of thousands of new dreamers. And who do we have to thank for the policies of catch and release? It isn’t Trump, facts and results prove that. It is people on record who are now either working for Joe and the Ho, or Senatorial scumbags like Schumer and McConnell.
If you are going to say it, say it with clarity, don’t try to use a code that makes you sound ignorant. And if you are going to act like you are blind to what’s going on, CNN and MSNBC are looking for reporters.
We have had an immigration policy in this country for years. Many, Many of our own families are immigrants from Europe and other places. The policy needs to be corrected to figure out how this country is going to make space and allow people who want to immigrate to the Us to do it legally, not running across the border as they do now. The Immigration people need to get on the ball and do their jobs effectively and in a timely manner without all the politicians wanting to use it as a political tool to beat their opponent in a voting year
I see a valid point or two outside of the disrespectful and mindless rhetoric of calling the president and vice president a son of a bitch and a ho I liken that the scum and un-American fools that stormed the nation’s capital because we voted the worst president this country has ever had one who would take the highest office in the land and treat it like that dumb ass TV show he had one who would openly support white Supremist groups in a time that sort of behavior can not a will not be tolerated one who and mishandled a pandemic while thousands died one who’s self centered agenda stroked the rich and clueless in the name of making America white again doesn’t anybody see that enough is enough we as a people have been standing on the backs of people of color far too long we lied ,stole, and betrayed the Indians for they’re land then we stole people from they’re country to work the land we lied, murdered and betrayed for not to mention all the murder and mistreatment people that’s not heritage that’s a danm disgrace 😢 the things we have done as a people it’s truly not a badge of honor some of us think we are entitled to the mistreatment of people of color we are not and our body of work in society proves it have some respect for yourself and your country you would never hear people speak that way about the Queen or storm the palace we don’t have to be scum because we can
The damn disgrace is on your ignorant comments. If no one else wants to say it I will. I’m pretty sure that my Drill Sergeants were right, “Youxre talking out of your belly button, maggot!
You are an idiot,but l guess you and everyone you know already know that. l personally would trade you and every other asshole like you for an immigrant any time. l guess you know all about cockroaches from personal experience as one.
Trump was a democrat in good standing with all of you clueless,backstabbing democrats,I don t think he was ever for killing babies like you are,other than that he was the cheating on the wife,dubious bussines practices,but ALL democrats and some gopers seeked his favor,and most got it…then he ran for president and all of you turned on him like good democrats.
Jesse Jackson,Al Sharpton and all racial hustlers democrats couldn t say enough good things about him.
He denounced white supremacists, nazists and all that evil stuff,but no, in your eyes and ears you twist everything bc he doesn t agree nor does he do the things you want him to do.
You love that evil covid vaccine,he gave that to the world in record time,but in your twisted mind you probably think it was Fook Joe that did it.
Covid was much ado about nothing,millions of us never took or will ever take the vaccine,yet here we are,it was fine for the weak and ill,like…. Fook Biden,that sombich better take 10 shots of that shit if he wants to stay alive,a gift from Donald J Trump for Fook Biden.
Arrested the 26th, charged, jailed and finally released on the 27th. Makes sense in today’s world. He is no doubt worried
