The video was originally shown on the Mexican television network Azteca Trece on Tuesday. The voiceover is entirely in Spanish, but the images aren’t hard to understand even for those who don’t speak the language: It shows two men very obviously engaged in smuggling making their way over the border in Arizona.
At first, the smugglers don’t see the camera. When one of the men did, he yelled “No graben!” — “don’t record!” — while talking into a walkie-talkie.
After having seen the camera, they decided to climb back over the fence into Mexico without having made the drop off. Without the camera, though, they almost certainly would have dropped their merchandise on the American side of the border with little effort and almost no risk. Check it out here. The action starts at about the 1-minute mark.
And this isn’t the first time, either. Take a look at this video where a similar border incursion occurred.
