Armed Mexican Migrant Convicted in Canadian Border Human Smuggling Case

by Bob Price

A Mexican man, illegally present in the United States, pleaded guilty in federal court to smuggling other Mexican migrants from Canada into New York. He also pleaded guilty to illegal possession of a firearm.

Swanton Sector Chief Patrol Agent Robert Garcia tweeted photos of a revolver used by a Mexican national while smuggling other Mexican migrants from Canada into New York in February. The man recently pleaded guilty to the charges.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of New York announced that Rey Felix-Rubio, a 32-year-old Mexican national, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit alien smuggling and unlawful possession of a firearm.

Court records obtained by Breitbart Texas revealed that Burke Station Border Patrol agents were notified shortly after midnight on February 14 of an illegal migrant crossing near Chateaugay, New York. Surveillance cameras in the area observed a dark-colored midsized Jeep SUV driving in an area known for human smuggling.

Agents responded to the area after another camera detected five people walking south from the Canadian border about a half-mile from where the Jeep was spotted. The agents made a vehicle stop after finding the SUV and noticing multiple people inside. During an immigration interview, agents identified the driver as Felix-Rubio who admitted he has illegally entered the United States in 2021, the criminal complaint states.
