Fox News’ Griff Jenkins caught a group of illegal immigrants trying to cross the U.S.-Mexican border while reporting from Texas, forcing the group to at least temporarily turn back.


“Yesterday, we laid in the bushes in wait and we busted one of those smuggling operations,” Jenkins reported on Tuesday morning.

Jenkins camped out with his camera crew next to a river and caught a group of migrants trying to cross the river on a raft. When the group saw Jenkins with his crew, they turned back and settled on the Mexican shore.

“Excuse me sir,” Jenkins yelled. “Were you trying to cross into America illegally?”

“What we’re witnessing now is clearly a family that was being brought over by that smuggler that was paddling in the raft,” he said. “They’ve gone back over there, we’ve seemed to have foiled this attempt but officials tell us he’s probably just gonna look for another spot.”
