Border Patrol agents recently arrested 13 illegal immigrants disguised as U.S. Marines and riding in a fake military van, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Tuesday.

The illegal immigrants were clad in Marine uniforms when they were apprehended at the Campo Border Patrol Westbound I-8 checkpoint at 11 p.m. on March 14 near Pine Valley, Calif., border officials said. Two U.S. citizens in the van also were arrested.

After the suspicious white van was subjected to secondary inspection, it was determined that the driver of the vehicle and its front seat passenger were U.S. citizens who were attempting to smuggle 13 illegal immigrants into the United States. All of the vehicle’s occupants wore U.S. Marine uniforms, reportedly emblazoned with the name “Perez.”

    Ok first of all having been in the Corps some time back you will never ever see a fat body like dude in the second sit if so your butt is on the way out of the Corps. Next I have to hand it to them for trying but they could have tCorps don’t tried to wear a U.S Army uniform in stead of the Marine Corps. Because the Marine Corps don’t allow us to wear COMBAT UNIFORMS IN PUBIC the only uniform one can wear in pubic is our dress greens or our blues no combat uniforms, so most likely one of the guys whom stopped them knew that from having been in the Corps.
