In one of the most bizarre stories of today, a naval base narrowly avoided being breached by a speeding truck filled to the brim with illegal immigrants.
Located some 125 miles north of the border separating the US from Mexico in Brownsville, the Kingsville Naval Air Station was first approached by the vehicle on Thursday evening. Unsure as to the identity of the truck and it's occupants, base security were shocked when it proceeded to charge the initial security point and enter the base.
Realizing that the truck had to be stopped at all costs, Navy personnel deployed the base's “final defense barrier,” a durable device made of steel cables and rubberized posts. The barrier halted the vehicle with little trouble, severely damaging it and leaving six of the people traveling in it injured.
As if the story wasn't weird enough, authorities believe that everybody in the truck was an alien trying to enter the country illegally, something that should raise serious question about the security of not just our borders' but our military facilities as well.
