This morning, sixteen Marines from the 1st Marine Division at Camp Pendleton in California were detained for “alleged involvement in various illegal activities,” according to a statement from the Marine Corps.
Today’s roundup is linked to the July 3 arrests of Lance Cpl. Byron Law and Lance Cpl. David Javier Salazar-Quintero, who were pulled over by Border Patrol officers who found three illegals in the backseat of their vehicle. The duo was allegedly trying to make money by smuggling people from Mexico into the United States.
