According to the Mexican Migration Project, the data shows that it costs one illegal immigrant $3,000 to $4,000 to be guided and smuggled through the southern border by a coyote. The term coyote is slang for a people smuggler. This price includes the forgery of documents, passports and government papers required by the U.S. to be here.
Efrain Delgado-Rosales, 35, had crossed the Mexican – U. S. Border as a smuggler of illegal aliens for financial gain. Since 1999, he has been arrested 24 times doing this activity. A federal judge in San Diego has finally charged him for the first time for smuggling people across the southern border for money.
Delgado-Rosales led a group of 4 illegals (that’s about $16,000) through California’s Otay Mountains this past November. When he got them up to the border, he left the group for hours on the Mexican side and told them he’d be back. During their waiting of several hours, a bunch of thieves robbed the group of their cell phones and money. When Rosales returned, the group sensed that he was involved in the robbery plot.
After Rosales got them through the border inside the U. S., three of the immigrants we’re fatigued and fell behind. The fourth illegal fervently begged Rosales to go back for the stragglers and he finally complied.
A similar situation happened with Rosales in August , but the robbed straggler died.
According to the U.S. Attorney’s office, Delgado-Rosales was first arrested on July 19, 1999. On 23 of the 24 occasions he was arrested, Delgado-Rosales was accompanied by at least two and as many as 46 illegal immigrants. In 2003, he was arrested in Los Angeles with 61 illegal immigrants.
Each time Delgado-Rosales was arrested, he was deported back to Mexico.
With fraudulent papers, open borders, not enough immigration enforcement and a broken immigration system, it’s no wonder the illegals get away with this. When they get caught, our government doesn’t send them back immediately. The red tape of paper work and human rights gives the illegals a chance to get away and not come back for the hearing. With fake ID, they can be in our country and have the freedom to live, tax free and unknown to the government of these U.S..
