During an inspection, CBP officers discovered that one of the birth certificates did not belong to a 9-month-old, who turned out to be a Mexican national, the news release said.

In addition, four Mexican nationals, including an 8-year-old and three adults, were found hidden in the cargo area of a 2007 GMC Yukon. None of the four had valid documents to enter the U.S., the news release said.
