Border Is Secure – 192 Smugglers Arrested In 1 Month!

From Reuters:

U.S. announces arrests in border crackdown on human smuggling

By Peter Cooney | July 22, 2014

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. officials have made almost 200 arrests and seized more than $625,000 in illicit profits in a month-long crackdown on human smuggling in response to an influx of illegal immigration into Texas, the Department of Homeland Security said on Tuesday.

Wow! "Almost 200 arrests" in one month?! But why didn’t anyone ever think of arresting these smugglers before now?

Meanwhile, even according to the White House’s most rosy figures, an average of 2,000 unaccompanied illegal alien children came across the border on a weekly basis in June. And we know that illegal alien ‘families’ are coming across in equal if not higher numbers. And Allah knows how many non-children non-family illegals are streaming across.

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said the campaign underscored the government’s pledge that U.S. borders were not open to illegal immigration "and that if you enter the United States illegally, we will send you back".

Oh, our sides. So far all we know is that 38 Hondurans have been sent back. 38.

"Equally important, those who prey upon migrants for financial gain will be targeted, arrested, and prosecuted," he added in a statement. "We are focusing on the pocketbooks of these human smugglers, including their money laundering activities in the United States – working with our Mexican and Central American partners to track, interdict, and seize the money flowing through Mexico and Central America." …

These coyotes get up to $10,000 per head. So even if we are to believe that the $625,000 seized is all from coyotes, that is just the profit from transporting a measly 6,250 illegals. Which is probably not even a week’s worth.

"Less than a month into this operation, 192 smugglers and their associates have already been arrested on criminal charges, more than 501 undocumented immigrants have been taken into custody and more than $625,000 in illicit profits have been seized from 288 bank accounts held by human smuggling and drug trafficking organizations," the secretary said…

And how many of these 192 smugglers will be released? Lest we forget, DHS (via ICE) released 44,000 illegal aliens with criminal convictions in 2013 alone. Including murderers and rapists.

So why not release human smugglers? Don’t they have a right to a better life, too?
