Incredible photos of the weirdest ways illegal immigrants have tried to sneak across the U.S. border
Donald Trump has vowed to build a ‘big, beautiful, powerful wall’ spanning the 1,933 mile land border between Mexico and America, which will make crossing over an even greater challenge for illegal immigrants.
But these photographs suggest that there are bound to be some who will try.
They reveal the extraordinary lengths desperate immigrants have gone to in their bids to evade Customs and Border Protection guards undetected and start a new life in the US.
They range from the heart-breaking discovery last month of children being smuggled in hot car trunks to December’s interception of a fake, but convincing, border patrol vehicle packed with immigrants.
Other attempts include a Jeep Cherokee balanced precariously atop the border fence and the infamous sight of a man sewn into a car seat.
Another astonishing smuggling bid involved a woman hiding in a car dashboard. Wall or no wall, border guards will need to keep their eyes peeled.
