At times, immigration agents at the border catch imposters trying to cross the border into the U.S. Sometimes the illegal immigrants have dyed their hair; other times, the poseurs are just similar physical types to the folks whose real ID's they try and pass off as their own.
Last Friday, though, the challenge was simpler, according to officials from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, who said that a bearded man from Mexico tried to get into the U.S. with the aid of a SENTRI card belonging to a woman. Even if he had shaved before attempting the ruse, the 22-year-old man might have had a tough time passing himself off as the 44-year-old woman on the card.
The man was returned to Mexico, according the CBP officials.
Amazingly, this may not be the dumbest crook of the week in the local area. Check out photos of the guy who stole a pair of video cameras in Littly Italy.
