illegal crossers

I was working my night shift with the Border Patrol when I received a radio call from our person working scope. I was TDY to Douglas, Arizona where the influx of illegal citizens were overwhelming the area. The scope person tells me he has a group of three crossing by the wash heading towards the highway. I position myself in front of them, the most likely route they are going to take while other agents were working from the border towards them. As I laid in wait, I see the first person pop his head up, looking to see of the coast is clear. The person puts his head back down and the pops out of the brush and then I see two more people start to come out of the brush and I start to run over to cut them off. They see me and they lay down flat. I yell “parese” and they just look at me and yell it again “levantanse todos” and the next thing I see, like a bunch of gophers popping up one at a time, 50 people stand up. I just look and thought holy shit, So I yell, “sientense” and they all sat down and then my partner runs over, who doesn’t quite know yet and yells “levantanse”, I just said “no, no, no” and all 50 get up and he says “oh shit” and then yells “sientanse” and they all sit down. He says that’s not three, I said yeah. We inform scope that the group was upwards of 50 and he says I have bad angle up here. I asked were you looking at this group, he said yes and I asked maybe that the scope should go in for maintenance. During this whole time of two BP agents and 50 illegal citizens, the illegal citizens never once were disrespectful or failed to follow any of our commands. One guy asked, as we were doing our searches for weapons and illegal contraband, how we spotted them and I told him we have satellites and he just looks up and says, “looking at us”,  and I said yeah, and he looks up and waves hi. LOL, poor guy, my partner told them they have missiles and the the guy says nahhhh! they would’ve killed me a long time ago. I started to laugh and said to my partner, we have a repeat customer. The illegal citizen said, I was in already, I just wanted to visit my family for Christmas. I told him he was funny, that I was going to let him drive the transport van, he said really, I said NO!, este loco……
