Border Patrol agents foil child smuggling attempt at Harlingen airport

August 17th 2012   ·   10 Comments

A woman was caught trying to smuggle three undocumented children onto a plane at the Valley International Airport.

Mariscela Garcia Rogers and three boys were attempting to fly to New Orleans on Sunday.

While going through the security check-point, Border Patrol agents questioned Rogers relationship with the children.

She initially told agents that she was the boys god-mother, but after further investigation she admitted that they were in the country illegally.

Rogers told agents that the father had paid her to take them to Louisiana.
