RALEIGH, N.C. -- Authorities took 10 men suspected of being illegal immigrants into custody at Raleigh-Durham International Airport Wednesday.
Officials said the men crossed over the U.S. border illegally between Mexico and Arizona, caught a plane to Chicago and then took a Southwest Airlines flight to RDU.
Authorities said a federal marshal riding on the plane with the men overheard their conversation about entering illegally. He notified officials who were waiting for them at the airport.
