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.

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!
