LAREDO, Tex. (KGNS) - A 73-year-old man out of Houston pleads guilty to human smuggling.

Anthony Alfred Boring was arrested back in April 2022. He reportedly pulled up to the checkpoint along I-35, driving a truck pulling a locked utility trailer.

According to documents, when questioned about his cargo, he appeared shocked, turned pale, and mumbled, “I don’t know.” When agents opened the trailer, they found 145 undocumented immigrants inside.

One of the people described how hot it was in the trailer and that it was excessively packed with bodies. Also, there was no drinking water in the trailer.

Boring faces up to 20 years in federal prison.
