Well, the alien themselves obviously benefit from coming to this country illegally but who else receives benefit from the violation of US sovereignty?
Illegal immigration is BIG money. Mexico’s 3rd highest source of income behind oil and offshore US manufacturing comes from illegals working in the US. $24 Billion was sent from the US to Mexico in 2007. $24,000,000,000 is a LOT of money.
And, just as carrion rotting on the side of the road will attract vultures for an easy meal, illegal aliens with the collective earning potential of $24 Billion also attract vultures of the human variety.
The business of getting illegals across the border is also very lucrative. The predators that move humans north are known as “coyotes” and are just as dangerous as their four legged namesake. Coyotes charge thousands of dollars to bring someone to the US.
When they don’t get their money, coyotes hold their human cargo hostage until the man’s family or friends can come up with the money. All of this sorted business was brought back into the spotlight this week when a van carrying 16 illegals was stopped by the NC Highway Patrol in Kannapolis after receiving a 911 call alleging that the drivers of the van had kidnapped a man when his family didn’t have enough money to pay his “fee.”
The two “divers” have been charged with human trafficking. Their company, Transportes Amigos has been caught at this before but is somehow still in business and riding up and down US highways.
(Sidebar: Ever wonder why vans are just 15 passenger? More passengers requires a commercial driver’s license (CDL) by the USDOT so there’s another potential charge.)
In addition to the obvious human suffering this story reveals is the much more troubling fact tucked away in the latter part of the article. Illegals in the van weren’t all from Mexico or even Latin America. One was listed as coming from Ethiopia. How hard would it be for a middle eastern terrorist to use a coyote to come to North Carolina? When this happens, will they carry out their attacks on sanctuary cities first?
