A man is worried he may very shortly been deported for driving into the United States from Tijuana, Mexico, with twp people who he said snuck into his van that were undocumented.
Man Unidentified Fears for His Life
He is not the only one, according to some accounts. “I really do fear for my life. What else could they do to me, I don’t know,” said the San Diego man who has asked not to be identified by his name. He believes that what happened to him last Friday at San Ysidro Border Crossing is a cautionary tale. “I believe it is a scam,” he exclaimed.

In fact it is a not-so-uncommon request in these times, some say, since the COVID-19 pandemic has curtailed border crossing and access to goods.
“I thought everything was legit because they sent me a list of what they wanted. In fact, that is why I tell you everything was legit. Therefore, sometimes trying to do good things for people can bring misery,” the man explained.
Detained at the Border
The misery has kicked into high gear for the San Diego man in his 50s. They documented his moves to let his family know therefore know he’s safe. Then soon after taking a picture at the border crossing, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers detained him for hours.
