Two Marines Charged With Trafficking Illegal Immigrants Across US Border

Two Camp Pendleton Marines are accused of transporting undocumented immigrants along the U.S.-Mexico border near Tecate. 

U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested Lance Corporals Byron Law II and David Salazar-Quintero on July 3 in east San Diego County. The agents reportedly saw three undocumented immigrants jump into the Marines’ car on Interstate 8, just north of the border. 

According to a federal complaint, the undocumented immigrants told border agents they had agreed to pay the Marines $8,000 to take them north from the border to Los Angeles, eventually intending to head to New Jersey. 

In an interview with agents after the arrest, Law allegedly confessed it wasn’t the first time he and Salazar-Quintero had transported undocumented immigrants for cash. Law admitted to transporting another undocumented immigrant the night before from the Jacumba exit on the Interstate 8 freeway to a McDonald’s in Del Mar.
