A little after 3:00 a.m. on March 1st, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers decided a 2001 Toyota Sequoia at the Calexico border crossing warranted closer inspection. Fast forward to an intensive search and hey; there’s a 38-year-old Brazilian citizen in the gas tank.
US Customs and Border Patrol has confirmed they'll start using body-mounted accountability cameras on their officers in West Texas, New Mexico, Florida, Washington, Oregon, and Michigan. The ACLU has been working to make this happen since 2012, soon we'll see what exactly becomes of it.
In the last fourteen years, the US Border Patrol has found more than 170 tunnels they believe are used for smuggling contraband between Mexico and the States. Since American law enforcers don't want to enter the tunnels themselves, they're sending in cute little robots to do their dirty work.
