Report: Florida (Dem) Congressman's Son Arrested as Alleged 'Coyote'

Posted on 09/18/2008 1:53:28 PM PDT by Gopher Broke

WASHINGTON — Florida Rep. Allen Boyd's son was arrested in Arizona Sunday and charged with human smuggling after K-9 dogs allegedly sniffed out individuals hiding in the bed of his truck.

John F. Boyd attempted to drive through a Border Patrol security check in Willcox, court documents revealed, according to KVOA-TV in Phoenix. Five illegal aliens, including a 6-year-old girl, were found in the truck.

The criminal complaint obtained by KVOA states, "At the primary inspection area, a Border Patrol K-9 alerted to the possible presence of illegal aliens in the bed of the truck. A primary inspection agent approached the truck and saw an individual hiding under a piece of plywood in the bed of the truck."

The documents also say the illegal immigrants planned to pay $3,000 each to Boyd to smuggle them into the final destination in the United States.

The vehicle contained "two plastic bags that contained several rocks of crystal methamphetamine, four unopened syringes, a spoon with white residue and burn marks on the bottom, and three knives. A further search of the vehicle revealed a Beretta 22LR pistol loaded with eight rounds of ammunition and a spare magazine loaded with eight rounds of ammunition in a suitcase in the bed of the truck," read documents cited by KVOA.

In a statement sent to FOXNews.com, the Democratic congressman acknowledged that his son attended a preliminary hearing on Monday and was charged with "alien smuggling."

"This is a family matter that my family and I will be dealing with privately. John is a grown man and must face the consequences for his actions, but he has the love and support of his family," Boyd said.

Boyd's office told FOXNews.com that he would not provide further comment.

Wanna bet? Sounds like a federal matter to me.

Democrats are determined to destroy this country. This is too simple.

What of Satah Palin's life in the past 3 weeks has been dealt with privately, Congressman Boyd?

What. A. Pucking. Futz.

Hmm. Where are the cries from the left for “the public’s right to know”?

John F. Boyd doesn’t sound too slick. He would have run less risk doing prearranged pickups of people who had already crossed. He is clearly meth-addled and doing anything to support his habit.

Hey, no problem. I’m sure the “immunity” from prosecution that dems like jefferson and rangel get also extends to their kids.

Boyd is my congress critter. Stretch Pelosi allows him to vote against his rat party now and then when the vote doesn't matter. He projects support for our troops and conservative values, but when push comes to shove, this clown supports the party leadership. He is a walking, talking example of why terms limits is good idea.

Wonder why?

Yes, he serves the 2nd district here. He is my Congresscritter....here’s hoping he loses this November. He has had 7 terms and no real competition until this time.

It is past time for this Blue Dog to be ousted.

He is lucky he was not caught on the other side of the border. Possession of the gun and ammunition would have resulted in much more severe treatment than a few illegals and drugs.

Holy Sh** !!! I am in his Daddy’s former district. I wonder how many he has hauled back here?? I can tell you there are thousands of “immigrants” in our tiny rural area, and I would bet that 90% of them aren’t here legally.

My brother is a deputy and the majority of his calls are to go out and deal with some raucus caused by these people. It seem’s that the ones who come with their family in tow are much more polite and law abiding(apart from the fact that they are breaking it by being here) and you hardly ever have problems out of them, but you do see higher crime in the “bachelor groups” stabbings, fights, stealing, etc.

I understand that these folks are only trying to make their life better, but the ones who come here illegally cast a shadow on the honest law abiding immigrants who are here LEGALLY!!

We won’t even get into how much they can cost the tax payers.

IMHO, this story along with the Dem son in Tenn who hacked Palins computer, along with all of the other fumbling and bumbling on the part of Democrats EVERYWHERE is what life would be like on a permanant basis if BO were to become POTUS.

I further believe that these incidents were from people who assumed that he was going to be POTUS and were just getting warmed up.

What about prostitution? There was a 6-year old girl, the gender of the other people weren't mentioned. What was the statute that got Spitzer in bigger trouble, crossing state borders with a woman for solicitation?

It’s OK I know you’re on the right side of the issue.

I made the picture myself. The cross is from some Cathedral In France I believe and the picture of the lake is one I took early in the morning a few weeks back.

When I made the picture I was thinking of the rising tide of anti Christan sentiment but see Christanity still rising above it.

Actually That was just a rough draft. The nice thing about photoshop is the ability to go back and make changes. I just downloaded a set of new brushes today that I want to play with. (beams of light)

???

The 6 year old girl more than likely was the daughter of someone he was smuggling. Let’s hope so anyway.

That would certainly be just awful if it wasn’t.

Doesn’t sound like they nailed him for that either. Just the smuggling. Something sounds very strange about this report.

---We won’t even get into how much they can cost the tax payers.

Your Florida description reflects precisely our rural Virginia one.

And the costs go even beyond the dollars and cents, straight to the decimation of trust in and integrity of the laws and government of the United States, that is, not its constitutional foundation, but the politicians who circumvent it.

If the economic powers who lobby, bribe, and subvert for the illegal invasion really were there for the labor (the work that Americans won't do), it would be a straightforward matter to shore up the border, and inaugurate a temporary, monitored, regulated work program, starting at border entrances, continuing through designated housing, and using all that computer power routinely used to track terrorists, satellites, criminals, credit cards, toll payers, website users, etc. etc. All costing far less than the parasitic draw of twenty million illegals.

The government (CFR) plan is unfortunately far more insidious.

I completely agree.

The problem with these "coyotes" is that they don't really know the intentions of the people on the receiving end of the transaction.
