Mariachi superstar Pepe Aguilar’s son is the man who infamously attempted to smuggle 4 Chinese nationals into the U.S. by stuffing them in the trunk of his car … according to U.S. Customs officials.
Customs and Border Control released the photo of the 4 people earlier this month, but no one realized the driver of the Chrysler 200 was connected to Aguilar — a Grammy winning singer so popular he has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Jose Emiliano Aguilar was stopped on March 14th at the border crossing between Tijuana and San Ysidro, CA. Agents were alerted when a K-9 unit got a whiff of the human cargo.
According to docs … Jose unlocked the trunk and agents found 2 men and 2 women. Each had agreed to pay between $3k and $60k if they’d successfully made it into the country.
Jose has retained powerhouse attorney Jeremy Warren, who tells us … “The Aguilars are a strong, tight-knit family. Nothing about this situation will change that.”
OUR PREVIOUS REPORT ON THIS HUGE CASE OF HUMAN SMUGGLING:
It’s always shocking to see the extremes people will go to to cross our border but China is a looong way to go to come to America…A border patrol officer opened a trunk to find 4 Chinese illegals! You know we have problems when we have people from China trying to cross our border illegally!
Human smuggling is yet another reason for the wall at the southern border. We cannot keep letting people just come freely from places all over the globe. Our border really has become a GLOBAL GATEWAY for anyone and everyone. The problem is that WE CANNOT AFFORD THIS and IT’S A TERROR RISK. The bleeding heart liberals need to understand that WE ALL PAY FOR THESE PEOPLE since they are mostly economic migrants looking for freebies.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the San Ysidro port of entry thwarted an alleged human-smuggling attempt Tuesday after discovering four Chinese nationals concealed in the trunk of a vehicle.
“Concealing persons in vehicles is dangerous and could have severe consequences,” said Pete Flores, Director of Field Operations for CBP in San Diego. “San Ysidro CBP officers stopped a violation of our immigration law and were able to resolve the incident safely.”
The incident occurred at about 5:45 p.m., on Mar. 14, when a 24-year-old male U.S. citizen, entered the San Ysidro border crossing driving a 2014 Chrysler 200. While the vehicle was at the booth for inspection, a roving CBP Canine team’s Narcotic/Human Detector Dog alerted. Officers examined the vehicle’s trunk and discovered four individuals crammed inside.
Officers extracted two females and two males, all Chinese nationals, from the trunk and escorted them to a secure location for further processing. Officers confirmed that the Chinese nationals had no legal ability to enter the United States.
