FLORESVILLE -- Police here believe that as many as four illegal immigrants fled officers after a high-speed pursuit that ended at a ranch on the eastern edge of the city limits just before 11 p.m. April 4.

Sgt. Devin Keen of the Floresville Police Department said officers apprehended six illegal immigrants who were hiding in the bed of a green Ford F-150 underneath a hard-shell tonneau cover. This was after the driver and three passengers riding in the cab of the pickup ditched the vehicle in a pasture between G Street and Sunnyside Road in Floresville and fled on foot into the night.

A Texas Department of Public Safety helicopter was called in to assist officers in locating those who fled. As of 12:45 a.m., none were located. Those who were captured were transported to the Wilson County Jail where they awaited transfer into the custody of U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement officials.

Why a high-speed chase? Because the damn smuggler didn't want to get caught. He could care less about the poor fellows in the bed of the truck. And, of course, he gets away ... Read More Read More

Rock'n, they must be in jail since we taxpayers shell out $250 million a year to incarcerate and provide medical services for them.
