Dewayne Nobles was arrested after Border Patrol agents found 11 illegal immigrants sitting on the attic rafters above his bedroom in his stepfather’s house in Texas.

Malik Jackson, nabbed at a highway checkpoint in California, told agents he was recruited by a high school buddy over Snapchat and was offered $300 to drive Mexican illegal immigrants and $600 to drive Chinese.

Luis Morales-Melendez stands accused of refusing to help as one of the group of illegal immigrants he was leading across the Rio Grande began to struggle and eventually drowned in the river’s swirling waters.

Jaime Chavez-Guevara was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement by the crew of a container ship who said they found him stowed away on a run from Panama to Savannah, Georgia.
