Fox News Reporter Foils Illegals Attempt to Cross Border
Fox News Insider reports:
Awaiting a border crossing attempt in McAllen, Texas, Jenkins and his camera crew saw a group -- not part of the caravan -- crossing the Rio Grande in a raft.
He said that a family was in the raft, along with a smuggler who was steering it.
"Excuse me sir, were you trying to cross into America illegally?" Jenkins called out before the smuggler paddled to a different part of the river bank.
The growing caravan of immigrants from Central America continues to inch closer to the southern border and is reportedly more than a mile long.
Later, Jenkins spoke with an illegal immigrant aboard a second raft crossing the river.
A woman told Jenkins she made the trek with two others and a small child due to the situation in Honduras.
"You cannot work there because the criminal always will get your money," she said.
