It is highly uncharacteristic for there to be legitimate pedestrian traffic in that area.

We never got in position to signal it to stop. We got between a quarter-mile to a half-mile behind it.

We're not 100 percent conclusive on that. They're still looking into that. . . . I don't want to get into it yet, into how they actually entered.

You have three vans in one location with a significant number of illegal aliens. This was obviously a coordinated smuggling effort.

It's not the first time that people have tried to make it through up there under those conditions. A lot of times, smugglers will tell these guys, 'It's gonna be a half-hour walk. Don't worry about it.

It was only about six inches below the asphalt.

We'll try to determine who's responsible for this smuggling operation (and) who the drivers of the vehicle were.
