U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers at the Brownsville Port of Entry intercepted a woman and a man for alleged violations of immigration law.
The citizens of Mexico allegedly presented a U.S. naturalization certificate and a counterfeit authorization in alleged attempts to enter the country.
A 22-year-old female Mexican citizen who resides in Celaya, Guanajuato, Mexico applied for admission into the U.S. as a pedestrian. Further review indicated that the naturalization certificate was a fraudulent document.
Just minutes later, a 22-year-old male Mexican citizen who also resides in Celaya, Guanajuato, Mexico applied for admission to enter the country as a pedestrian as well. CBP officers used a CBP database and discovered that the presented document was in fact fraudulent.
CBP officers seized the document; the adults were taken into custody for alleged violations of immigration law.
