Hiding Inside Cardboard Boxes And Even A WASHING MACHINE, People Will Do Almost Anything To Get Into The U.S.

OK, this is simply mindboggling. I mean, would you ever have thought possible that a person would try to get into the U.S. by hiding into a WASHING MACHINE? If you have, then you have quite an imagination.

That is precisely what border patrol officers came across on Friday in Falfurrias, Texas. A man was found hiding inside a washing machine after he had illegally crossed the Mexican border into the U.S. Four other men were found huddled inside a cardboard box and were also detained.

The group was traveling inside a U-Haul truck whose driver was also detained, along with his female passenger. KGBT reports that the immigrants were offered medical help, but they declined.

The U-Haul truck was stopped at the checkpoint in Falfurrias after a border patrol K-9 alerted the agents who then referred the driver to secondary inspection.

Homeland Security Investigations is currently investigating the case. (Scroll down for the videos.)
