Border agents find illegals ...
sewn inside the seats of a van

If I didn't know any better, I would swear this was a screenplay for a Mr. Magoo cartoon.

As published by NBC11.com:
SAN YSIDRO, Calif. -- U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers arrested a U.S. man Tuesday morning after they say he tried to smuggle three migrants into the country hidden in the seats of his vehicle.

CBP officers said they encountered the driver, a 33-year-old resident of Rosarito, Mexico, as he entered the port at about 5 a.m. driving a GMC Vendura van. According to authorities, the driver stated he was a citizen of the United States and presented a valid California identification and birth certificate to the officer. The primary officer said the driver has a nervous demeanor. The officer referred the vehicle and occupant to a secondary lot for a more in-depth examination. In the secondary lot, CBP officers discovered three undocumented migrants sewn into three seats of the conversion van, including the driver’s seat. CBP officers said they carefully extracted two men and a woman from inside the seats.

Officers determined that the two men and woman are citizens of Mexico. They are being detained as material witnesses in the prosecution case.

How much do you think Magoo got paid for turning these people into La-Z-Boys?

Think that's bad? Remember this?

And don't forget the real problem. You might not find this as funny.

They should have left them sewn in the dang thing and pulled it on the side of the road in Mexico and left the keys in it!
