Illegal Smuggling Across the Border

By Criminal Defense Attorney on April 30, 2012

Alien smuggling is a dangerous and illegal act. Being so close to the border we understand that people are actively seeking a better way of life and are willing to risk their lives in order to achieve this goal. As a Mexican American young woman, when I hear the work "coyote" I don't think of the animal, instead I think of the individuals who cross illegal immigrants. These so called "coyotes" cross them through the deserts and mountains when smuggling them across the U.S.-Mexico border. Most "coyotes" turn out ot be nice people, but many are not. U.S. Border Patrol Agents have found cases where the "coyote" has stranded women with children because they could not keep up. In many sad cases, agents find the dead bodies of mothers with their arms wrapped around their children. "Coyotes" will leave anyone who can not keep up and thousands of people will die due to dehydration and starvation. Even more extreme is the fact that "coyotes" have been know to kill the illegal immigrants because they could not pay for the services provided.
