The identity of the truck driver has not been released, but Border Patrol says that he is a USA citizen.

The 22-year-old driver of the vehicle admitted to performing scouting duties for a smuggling crew. "The driver, a beneficiary of DACA which has since expired, is now being held in federal custody".

Authorities also imposed a curfew in the old parts of Srinagar , which is the urban center of protests against Indian rule. The deputy commissioner of Shopian has been asked to probe the incident and submit a report within 20 days.

In the second incident, agents received a tip from a citizen who said they saw a suspected smuggling incident near Torrey Pines State Beach.

The incident occurred on January 26 in Laredo, Texas, after the driver was pulled over during an immigration checkpoint. Also inside the auto were that man's 22-year-old cousin and a 21-year-old man, both of whom were Mexican nationals in the US illegally, according to the agency's statement, which said the driver and his cousin "admitted their involvement with human smuggling in the area".

The driver was a 20-year-old DACA recipient whose status had lapsed.
