A Texas man that had been caught with 119 undocumented immigrants in his truck in January has finally pleaded guilty.
On January 212, 2021, Keith Rhodes approached a checkpoint in Freer, TX.
When authorities opened his trailer, they found 119 immigrants in the back of the refrigerated trailer.

When they opened up the trailer, they found 119 illegals hoping to get across the border.
Rhodes, a Houston, TX, native, has now copped to smuggling the immigrants into the country,
Upon sentencing, Rhodes could spend up to a decade in jail as well as having to pay a fine of up to $250,000.
