Police Catch Texas National Guardsman Trying to Smuggle Migrant in a Government Vehicle

Greg Abbott sent these soldiers to the border to do nothing. It turns out, they’re not just doing nothing – they’re running their own smuggling operations.

New York Post:

Dramatic video captured the moment a Texas National Guardsman was captured after allegedly smuggling an illegal immigrant to the southern border and leading police on a high-speed chase in his government-issued SUV.

Specialist Savion Amari Donovan Johnson, 26, is seen being dragged out of the vehicle by members of the Texas Department of Public Safety and Kinney County sheriff’s deputies.

He was arrested Sunday in Bracketville after the chase, which reached speeds at over 100 mph and charged with evading arrest, smuggling of persons and unlawful carry of a weapon.

The soldier was deployed to the Eagle Pass crossing as part of Gov. Greg Abbott’s Operation Lone Star State, according to NewsNation Now.

Kinney County Sheriff Brad Coe told the outlet that Johnson turned around when he approached a Border Patrol checkpoint off Highway 674, where agents tried to stop him.

Texas DPS officers then used spike strips to get the SUV to come to a stop. The illegal immigrant jumped out and fled before he gave himself up and was later processed by Border Patrol, according to the outlet.

The suspect, who was armed, was promised $5,000 to $6,000 for smuggling the undocumented person, sources told NewsNation.

That’s not really a lot of money.

I guess it’s a lot for an illegal. He must be a documented felon who has previously been deported, otherwise he could have just walked across the border.
