It’s not known whether Enrique Aquilar Canchola, 42, thought his disguise would work, but it definitely didn’t. The Mexican national tried to cross the Mexico-U.S. border into San Ysidro, Calif., disguised as a car seat.

(London Times) …He agreed to it after learning immigrants are often treated like furniture.
OK, you read the story first, right?
