A man from Texas has now confessed to attempting to smuggle illegal migrants into the U.S. while hidden inside a coffin draped with an American flag.

As Yahoo News reports:

A Texas man admitted to trying to smuggle two people into the United States in a coffin draped with an American flag — like those that carry soldiers killed in combat — the Justice Department said Wednesday.

The suspect, 33-year-old Zachary Blood, was caught when in October he drove a van “modified to transport caskets” to a checkpoint near the US-Mexico border in Texas, federal prosecutor Jennifer Lowery’s office said in a statement.

When asked by agents what he was transporting, Blood responded “dead guy, Navy guy,” according to the statement.

“However, the coffin was in poor condition and the American flag was taped to the top with packing tape,” the Justice Department said.

The suspect now faces up to a $250,000 fine and potentially up to five years in prison.


  1. Disgusting attempt to use to use the method used for our military deceased…….to bring in ILLEGALS…….what a shame……..

  2. America Vote out the Nazis AKA the democratic party next election We The People demand our country back from the Nazis

  3. Should be more of a punishment for using such a sacred method to try and smuggle in illegals! If the fines and prison terms were more, they would have less incentive to do it!

  4. The Coyoties are making a fortune smuggling in illegals especially MS13 gang members (Pelisses special people).

  5. Why go through that…they can just walk in…. and get free flights to jax or 4 other airports where i watch planes land at 2am so 100 illegals can walk off into the city. Over 2 million illegals from 156 countries have made contact on the way into the us in the last year….but 2 to 4 million more get past the border patrol whose numbers have been reduced to a fraction of before

  6. LISTEN UP….IMMIGRATION REFORM is BADLY Needed in the U.S. THERE has GOT to Be a BETTER WAY for IMMIGRANTS to get to the U.S. WHAT U.S. PRESIDENT is MAN Enough to DO t he JOB????? BIDEN’S Way of DUMPING IMMIGRANTS All OVER the U.S. is NOT the ANSWER. Fro m SamuraiQueen. 😄😄😄😇😇😇

  7. While the federal government Joe Biden is flying thousands in the middle of the night wherever they wanna go, HYPOCRITICAL US GOVERNMENT!

  8. He should be looking at a hanging what he did is a form of TREASON. He is trying to Destroy America by using ILLEGALS to keep Democraps in power so they can turn America into so SOCIALIST-COMMUNIST Tenth World hole.
