National Guard Member Arrested for Smuggling Illegal Immigrant Across Border (VIDEO)

A member of the Texas National Guard was arrested after he was caught on video smuggling an illegal immigrant across the southern border in his government-issued vehicle.

In the video, Specialist Savion Johnson, who was deployed in Eagle Pass, Texas, was seen leading Texas’ Department of Public Safety authorities on a high-speed chase after authorities were alerted by Johnson’s suspicious actions near a Border Patrol checkpoint.

Johnson has since been charged with smuggling an illegal person, evading arrest, and unlawful carry of a weapon.

Governor Greg Abbott’s spokesperson stated that if the allegations against Johnson are true, he’s a “traitor and criminal.”
