Maritime smuggling recorded in broad daylight

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – New video captured by a citizen Sunday morning shows people being smuggled into the U.S. in broad daylight.

It happened near the Embarcadero at around 10 a.m. A small boat pulled up and seven people jumped off and ran to vans waiting nearby. Authorities were able to take the driver and one passenger into custody, but the others got away.

Incidents like these are not uncommon. In fact, San Diego has now become the busiest Maritime smuggling sector in the world.

KUSI’s Ginger Jeffries has the details in this Special Report.
