Smugglers Evade Law Enforcement By Ditching Vehicles In Rio Grande

New footage recently posted to X reveals human smugglers’ tactics for returning to Mexico and evading capture by law enforcement.

Texas Department of Public Safety Spokesman Chris Olivarez posted two videos to X on Friday, explaining that “The videos show recent smuggling events captured by @TxDPS in the #RGV. Criminal cartels & smugglers coordinate with each other as they evade law enforcement to avoid arrest.”

The videos are posted below.

In the first video, a smuggler in a black pickup truck can be seen fleeing local law enforcement in a high-speed chase. The smuggler then pilots the vehicle straight into the Rio Grande, bails out, and swims the remainder of the distance back to Mexico.
