Border Patrol agents arrested a member of the Mexican Mafia on Tuesday and charged him with smuggling illegal immigrants, according to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection news release.Agents from the Laredo South station arrested the gang member after receiving reports of suspicious activity near Rio Bravo, as the Rio Grande is called in Mexico.
The release states that the vehicle driven by the Mexican Mafia member matched the description of a car seen near the location of the suspicious activity.
When agents stopped the vehicle, occupied by a driver and four passengers, they performed an immigration inspection. The agents discovered the four passengers were illegal immigrants.
They were processed for violating the entry without inspection law.
The 50-year-old driver had twice been deported from the U.S. in 1997 and 2005.
He had previously been convicted of burglary and marijuana possession. He now faces charges of immigrant smuggling and re-entry after deportation.
The release states that the Laredo Sector Border Patrol has arrested five Mexican Mafia gang members during the past 3 ½ months.
At our expense.
I say a short chain around the neck on a public street, and let anyone so inclined bring him an occasional PBJ sandwich.
It's a short list this morning. No pings over the weekend, so let me take this opportunity to wish everyone a blessed Easter.
And throw away the key.
I have mixed feelings about providing him that for life, but I think that ultimately it would be cheaper than to live with the consequences of him being free, deported, sneaking back in, and running his business.
It’d be a greater expense to provide for all his human cargo.
However, I really do like your idea.
That should be good for a least a ruler smack on the hand. Jorge does not want to be seen as mean.
