Two bumbling drugs smugglers were caught live on TV sneaking into the United States over the border fence
A Mexican news TV network team had been filming a segment on cross border shootings at Nogales in Arizona when two men were caught on the cameras climbing over the fence.
When they landed on U.S. soil, they made their way along the fence as one made a call on his cellphone, Brietbart reports.
The pair then hunted for cover and had made their way to hide behind some shrubs when they noticed the Mexican film crew, Azteca Noticias, filming them.
Appearing angry, they began shouting at Azteca Noticias reporter Carolina Rocha and her crew to stop filming.
When the news team refused, the smugglers make a call before running back to the fence.
The men scaleed the metal railings within seconds and fled back into Mexico as the reporter told them; ‘I am only doing my job, son.’

Cartel gangs sending drugs from Mexico over border fence have become a common problem in the Nogales area.
But in other area, drugs smugglers have been forced to get more creative.
Last week U.S. border patrol agents uncovered a cross-border passageway — the length of four football fields — filled with a ton of marijuana between a California house and a Mexican restaurant.
It is the 75th secret passage between the US and Mexico discovered in the last decade, and the 12th specifically connecting California with America’s southern neighbor.
The land used to be a warehouse that is believed to be empty, until a mother and daughter purchased it in April 2015 for $240,000.
There is another commercial space next door which is also vacant.
They finished the house for an additional $86,000, but got the construction workers to leave space for them to excavate.

Mexico’s Sinaloa cartel has long controlled drug trafficking along the border of Mexico with Arizona, but also in California’s Imperial Valley, which offers easy freeway access to Los Angeles and Phoenix.
The group’s leader, Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman, escaped from Mexican prison in July through a tunnel and was captured again in January.
San Diego is popular because its Otay Mesa area is industrial and has many large warehouses considered ideal for storing and moving drugs.
