Sixty immigrants have been found in a load of ice-covered broccoli in a refrigerated trailer that was searched at a South Texas border checkpoint, federal officials said Monday.
A U.S. Customs and Border Protection statement said nobody was hurt and the trucker was arrested at the Falfurrias checkpoint.
Agents on Saturday opened the padlocked trailer and found dozens of immigrants amid pallets of broccoli lined with ice.

One of two Wisconsin teenagers charged with repeatedly stabbing a classmate to impress a fictitious horror character called Slender Man pleaded guilty Monday to a lesser charge.
Anissa Weier, 15, pleaded guilty to attempted second-degree homicide as a party to a crime, with use of a deadly weapon. She initially faced a charge of attempted first-degree intentional homicide in the 2014 attack on Payton Leutner in Waukesha, a city west of Milwaukee.
The plea means her trial next month will look only at whether she is legally responsible for the crime or not guilty because of mental illness. She could face 10 years in prison if she's found guilty. If not, she'll spend three years in a mental hospital.

The moon didn't just block the sun in the sky.
NASA's official Twitter account for the moon blocked its official account for the sun on the social media site to show that the eclipse wasn't just meant for the outdoors.
"HA HA HA I've blocked the Sun!" @NASAMoon tweeted with a screenshot of the blocked account. "Make way for the Moon."

The lone fugitive from the Spanish cell that killed 15 people in and near Barcelona was shot to death Monday after he flashed what turned out to be a fake suicide belt at two troopers who confronted him in a vineyard not far from the city he terrorized, authorities said.
Police said they had "scientific evidence" that Younes Abouyaaqoub, 22, drove the van that barreled through Barcelona's crowded Las Ramblas promenade, killing 13 people on Thursday, then hijacked a car and fatally stabbed its driver while making his getaway.
President Donald Trump squinted and pointed skyward before donning protective glasses to take in the solar eclipse at the White House.
The president was joined by wife Melania, son Barron and top aides Monday afternoon to view the spectacle from the portico overlooking the South Lawn. The White House originally said Trump would watch from the second-floor Truman balcony.
Shortly after walking outside, the president looked up at the sky, squinted and pointed upward.
A Los Angeles jury on Monday ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $417 million to a woman who claimed in a lawsuit that the talc in its iconic baby powder causes ovarian cancer when applied regularly for feminine hygiene.
The lawsuit was brought by a California woman, Eva Echeverria, who alleged Johnson & Johnson failed to adequately warn consumers about the potential cancer risks of talcum powder.
Two people attacked a judge in Ohio who was walking to work at the Jefferson County Courthouse Monday morning, wounding him after gunfire broke out, NBC News reported.
Judge Joseph J. Bruzzese, Jr. fired back at the attackers, as did a probation officer, after at least one of the suspects opened fire, Steubenville City Manager James Mavromatis told reporters.
One suspect is dead while the other is in custody. Mavromatis said both had criminal records.
"Clearly looking at the one video, you see the attacker coming up toward him," Mavromatis said. "I'd say he was the intended target."

The U.S. Secret Service is facing money problems — but that's not President Donald Trump's fault, the agency's director said Monday, in response to a report that the Trump family is straining protective resources.
Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex" Alles said funding for roughly 1,100 agents working overtime in 2017 is not an issue "that can be attributed to the current Administration’s protection requirements alone, but rather has been an ongoing issue for nearly a decade due to an overall increase in operational tempo," NBC News reported.

American workers ducking out to view Monday's total solar eclipse will cost employers at least $694 million, according to one estimate.
Reuters reported that a outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas found workers will head out of the office for roughly 20 minutes a piece, though that may be a conservative estimate, according to a vice president at the Chicago-based firm.
"There's very few people who are not going to walk outside when there's a celestial wonder happening above their heads to go out and view it," Andy Challenger said.
But those hundreds of millions of dollars in lost productivity pale in comparison to the amount lost to other events, like March Madness and Cyber Monday.
