Border agents check cars for guns in El Paso, Texas
"We are basing a lot of what we are doing out here on intelligence, just information we are gathering from working in this environment....and we are targeting vehicles that we suspect might be conducting that type of business," explained Bill Molaski, director of the Port of El Paso.
The searches at this particular border crossing have only produced one handgun so far, but the effort is praised by Mexico's General Consul in El Paso, Roberto Rodriguez.
"It is a good start to see what the American authorities are doing, especially stopping the trafficking of guns. Most of the guns used by the gangs in Mexico are coming from the United States," Rodriguez said.
