McAllen, Texas - On August 6, 2019, U.S. Border Patrol Agent Joseph Quatarone presented Operation Big Rig to students taking part of a Commercial Driving License class at the South Texas College -Technology Campus.

Operation Big Rig is a call to action for everyone -- the media, the community, neighbors, family, and friends -- to call 9-1-1 if they see or are aware of smuggling or suspicious activity of any kind. Border Community Liaison Unit Agents routinely speak to local trucking schools to highlight the perils and consequences of human smuggling to students in the process of beginning their trucking careers.
