Wait, is the concern that the man was trying to take the children unauthorized? Because it seems like not - that the concern is seatbelts. And I’m going to be honest (and show my age a bit, because I grew up without seatbelts). If you have children that just migrated across several countries and crossed the Rio Grande in a raft, probably seatbelts in Texas aren’t the biggest risk they’ve faced. The outrage seems a bit overblown.

Yea. It seems overblown. All these children coming into the country, get into a car with a man who refuses to identify himself to concerned citizens with the promise of candy, a safe home, and free food. Yep. Nothing to see here.

Listen to the men shouting in the background.

One of them says something about "could be kidnapping children" (paraphrasing)

The commotion happening is obviously about more than seatbelts

I didn't hear that, and I'll listen again. I appreciate your sincere response.

Yep. Not sure if dry wit and sarcasm was communicated. I think the original commenter I was responding to was also in the same nature.

I actually meant to reply to the other poster.

Your dry wit is perfectly fine

I think the no seat belt things was thrown in there to imply he was just letting them all pile up back there more so than focusing on their safety while driving, which that too is of some concern but less so than the predicament as a whole.

However the whole thing is fishy and probably deserves investigation. A lot of why's need to be asked and followed up on.

Just like they took Al Capone down for taxes, they're going to take down the Child Traffickers with failure to wear seat belts.

Seriously, use an infraction you can. You know they'd do the same to us.

To OP, great find. The camera man's a hero.
