A Chevrolet pickup truck loaded with 15 illegal aliens was stopped by a barrier fence when they attempted to enter Naval Air Station (NAS) Kingsville on Thursday. The barrier fence stopped the vehicle and prevented the illegal entry into the Naval facility.
On Thursday evening, about 8 p.m., the truck loaded down beyond capacity with suspected illegal aliens drove past the initial gate at the Kingsville NAS. Kingsville is located about 125 miles north of the Texas/Mexico border in Brownsville just off Highway 77.
After they vehicle charged past the initial security point, Navy security guards initiated what is known as a “final defense barrier,” a NAS Kingsville public information officer posted on Facebook. This device is a combination of steel cables and rubberized posts that will stop, nearly instantly, a vehicle attempting to make an illegal entry. It is designed with the capability to stop a semi-trailer truck at high speed, Navy officials report.
