A Border Patrol agent was involved in a shooting last week with a smuggler who was posing as part of the construction crews working on President Trump’s border wall in Arizona, The Washington Times has learned.
Nobody was reported injured. Although one driver was caught, another smuggler who was part of the shootout managed to escape back into Mexico. Nearly 20 illegal immigrants were discovered in the two trucks they were driving.
It was the latest incident of smuggling cartels using the tumult of wall construction to try to sneak people or drugs into the U.S.

President Trump has ordered the border to be shut down to noncommercial traffic in an effort to slow the spread of the new coronavirus. While overall illegal border crossings are down, they have not halted entirely, according to a Times review of smuggling cases that shows cartels are still trying to move medium-sized groups.
