    Will never be stopped.
    They WILL find a way.

    About a year ago, I used to go down to the 'Valley' (South Texas Edinburg McAllen area) every week to Deliver.

    They don't have a problem crossing the border illegally the challenge is to get past the checkpoints.
    I heard stories but never had it happen to me.
    They caught a guy (on the way back to Temple) on top of the truck (not trailer) at the Falfurrias checkpoint.
    Big inconvenience as we (co worker and me) got questioned and held up for about 2hours or so.

    After that I climbed up every week to check.
    This happened the very next week..(gonna find a way to upload the crappy quality video)
    The week after caught a guy checking it out from the ground.

    There is no good/safe way to climb up to check.
    We had people make it all the way back to Temple from down there. Which is a 6+ hour drive.

    When people don't have much to lose they're prone to desperate actions. I bet it was not pleasant for you to get caught in the middle of it.

    Still, I can understand why most of them are trying to cross over. The vast majority of those people are looking for some semblance of economic independence, the right to work and earn a fair wage, not to exploit our social system (and we are not a country with such great social safety net to boot, especially for undocumented residents). Even though this may be impossible today, a century ago before Ellis Island/Castle Garden America was truly free, one didn't have to be approved to enter the country.

    Just my 2c.

    Exactly. Unfortunately many people don't think of the danger they're putting themselves in when trying such a stunt. I can't even imagine what it's like to be so desperate that I would be considering that as an option. And as Philip mentioned, it sucks when innocent people like yourself get sucked into that event and fall under the scrutiny of the law.
