On Wednesday August 13th, 2014; two Mexican men were trying to enter the U.S. illegally in the trunk of a 2012 Dodge Challenger at the San Ysidro Port of Entry.
U.S Customs and Border Protection officers found the two men unconscious and not breathing, as they were attempting to enter the U.S. illegally in the trunk of a 2012 Dodge Challenger at the San Ysidro Port of Entry.
The two men were taken to a local hospital where they were declared dead.
U.S. authorities identified the men as Tarcisio Casas Blanco, 28, and Jose Quiroz Casas, 20, both from the state of Guanajuato.
The driver of the vehicle, Nicholas George Zakov, a 41 year old U.S. citizen, admitted trying to bring the men into the country illegally and told officials he was to be paid US $3,500 for the job, according to the complaint filed in U.S. District Court in San Diego.
“There is no a safe way to cross the border illegally. If you trust in a criminal organization, you are risking your life because these people only care about money,” said Pete Flores, director of San Ysidro Port of Entry.
Zakov was taken into custody.
