The teens can supposedly earn up to $3,000.
Fox News reported the border cartels have begun enlisting American teens on social media to smuggle migrants over the border:
Images obtained by Fox News shows the ads cartels are using on social media apps like TikTok, where they offer more than $3,000 a ride for teens and young adults to come drive smuggled migrants into the U.S. when they reach the border.
“Need 2 or 3 drivers to go through a checkpoint,” one says.
“Got another 6 left, already crossed. Lemme know ASAP for that easy cash,” another says.
If they take it, their job is to get migrants through checkpoints and then to a drop-off location like a store parking lot, where the migrants are then picked up by someone trusted by the cartel and transferred to stash houses scattered along the border.
A few sources told Fox News the teenagers use their parents’ SUVs without even telling them. One mother “started crying when she got a call from authorities about” her daughter smuggling migrants.
The border crisis has overwhelmed the Border Patrol, which means “teens are often getting little more than a slap on the wrist.”
This news comes just a few weeks after the Department of Homeland Security announced it has images of correspondence between human smugglers and migrants on social media platforms.
Officials believe smugglers using social media platforms have helped cause the migrant surge at the border.DONATE
