Border agents arrested a Canadian truck driver Monday after finding nine illegal immigrants from China hiding in the back of his tractor-trailer.
"It was another one of those cases where the officer got suspicious while asking the driver routine questions," Ronald Smith, spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said Monday. "Agents became suspicious because the driver was acting nervous."
The illegal immigrants -- six women and three men -- were in excellent physical condition.
The driver, 39, of Windsor was delivering a load of steel to Gary, Ind., and crossed into Detroit at the Ambassador Bridge. Agents discovered the illegal immigrants hiding in the trailer after the driver was told to open the doors. Border officials did not name the driver.
The driver was detained pending federal criminal charges.
The illegal immigrants were detained, pending debriefing as potential witnesses and deportation to Canada.
The case is being investigated by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
"This is one more example of our officers using their training and experience to spot something wrong and to take the appropriate action to stop it at the border," said Robert Perez, port director for the Port of Detroit for Customs and Border Protection.
Now I had some fun on this one!!!! Pucker factor is a bit high when you go in a trailer and see 18 sets of eyes staring back at you.
