TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — The U.S. Border Patrol says it has arrested four people suspected of being involved in a migrant smuggling attempt in Arizona.
Agents from the Tucson Sector’s Douglas Station found the four in a Chevrolet Cavalier sedan during a Sunday night immigration stop on State Route 80.
The agency says the driver was an 18-year-old Mexican man with authorization to work in the United States and his front seat passenger was a 19-year-old man from Ghana without permission to be in the U.S.
A search turned up two Mexican men, ages 22 and 40, in the car’s trunk. Agents believe both men entered the United States illegally.
