LANIER COUNTY, GA (WALB) –A traffic stop led to the arrest of 11 illegal immigrants in Lanier County.

A truck driven by Pedro Solis pulled in front of oncoming traffic at the intersection of Highways 221 and 168 yesterday afternoon.

A deputy pulled over the truck and found these ten other men crammed inside.

They did not have drivers licenses, visas or passports.

They'll be deported to Mexico for violating immigration laws.

Solis was also charged with failure to yield right of way, driving without a license, and a window tint violation.
