AP Does Touching Article On Coyote ‘Entrepreneurs’

From an appreciative Associated Press:

Migration spotlights Mexican ‘coyote’ smugglers

By E. EDUARDO CASTILLO and CHRISTOPHER SHERMAN | July 20, 2014

TECUN UMAN, Guatemala (AP) — The man-in-the-know nursed a late-morning beer at a bar near the Suchiate River that separates Guatemala from Mexico, and answered a question about his human smuggling business with a question: "Do you think a coyote is going to say he’s a coyote?"

Dressed as a migrant in shorts and sandals but speaking like an entrepreneur, he then described shipments of tens of thousands of dollars in human cargo from the slums of Honduras and highlands of Guatemala to cities across the United States. "It’s business," he said, agreeing to speak to a reporter only if guaranteed anonymity. "Sometimes, business is very good."

Notice that AP’s relentless misuse of the word ‘migrant.’ None of these people are migrants. They are all illegal aliens or worse.

Judging by the dramatic increase in the number of minors apprehended in the United States in recent months, it seems the human smuggling business from Central America is booming. The vast majority of migrants who enter the U.S. illegally do so with the help of a network of smugglers known as "coyotes," so named for the scavengers that prowl the border.

The purpose of this AP article seems to be to humanize these ‘coyotes.’ But it’s kind of weird that there is not one mention of Obama in the entire piece. After all, he is the Coyote In Chief. The world’s largest human trafficker.

Obama’s Border Patrol and Department of Homeland Security are transporting more illegal aliens into the heartland of America than any coyote ring could ever dream of. And Obama does it all for free. (Though with the expectation of future Democrat votes.)

It is a high-risk, often high-yield business estimated to generate $6.6 billion a year for smugglers along Latin America’s routes to the U.S., according to a 2010 United Nations report. The migrants pay anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000 each for the illegal journey across thousands of miles in the care of smuggling networks that in turn pay off government officials, gangs operating on trains and drug cartels controlling the routes north.

And yet we’re told they are all fleeing grinding poverty. (Or is it sex trafficking?) Where do these poor people get this $5,000 to $10,000?

The exact profit is hard to calculate. One expert who wasn’t authorized to speak publicly put it at $3,500 to $4,000 per migrant if the journey goes as planned. Smuggling organizations may move from dozens to hundreds of migrants at a time.

Again, that’s nothing compared to the numbers Obama’s minions are currently transporting in the dead of night.

The smugglers are profiting from the rising violence in gang-ridden cities of Central America, and the yearning of families to be reunited; parents often head north to find work and save money to send for their children, sometimes years later…

So these parents abandon their children for years, then get to stay in the US by claiming their children are the victims of sex trafficking. What a great system.

Many of the children and teenagers who travelled to the United States recently said they did so after hearing they would be allowed to stay… Some say coyotes helped spread those rumors to drum up new business following a huge drop in Mexicans migrating to the United States.

Arrests of migrants on the southwestern U.S. border dropped from about 1.1 million annually a decade ago to 415,000 last year…

Notice how far down the AP buried this jaw-dropping fact. Could the fact that arrests are down by more than 60% have anything to do with the current flood of illegal aliens?

Anyway,  we will skip the rest of this very long article. Since most of it is colorful profiles and touching anecdotes about these hardworking entrepreneurs.

    SG – can someone comment on yesterday’s Front page NYT Sunday’s photo? A stunning photo @ 1st look; until I realized it was photo shopped to look like the famous commie, Josep Maria Sert’s murals done during the WPA years. Check it out.

    I’d love to see the untouched photo! Maybe Hannity, Megan, Rush or O’Reilly could get their hands on it. Reminds me of the days when Newsweek thought it important to enhance Al Gore’s slacks during the 2000 election cycle.

    Seems the NYT would have it that human trafficking is now on par with nation building during the great depression.

    I propose Nancy Pelosi put up these poor strugglers for stuff that’s free at her several $1,000 a night Sonoma & Napa Valley hotels & resorts. Then I’d believe they’re serious. Until then, they’re just a bunch of liberal snots who would have us all begging from the same spigot.

    It’s disgusting!

    The risk-taking coyotes deserve to get paid for aiding illegals to illegally enter the US.

    they may not be illegals .
    after a few years, a Hawaiian birth Certificate is bound to show up.
