Four smuggling suspects were arrested in connection with the ransom of a 17-year-old Nicaraguan girl and a related raid last week that netted more than 80 suspected illegal immigrants, authorities said.

A criminal complaint charges Luis Trejo-Onofre, 30, Jose Santos-Solorzano, 24, Jose Victor Perez-Olivas, 42, and Gumecindo Jaime-Martinez, 37, with harboring, transporting and conspiracy to harbor and transport illegal immigrants, records show. The men, all Mexican citizens, are scheduled to appear in federal court Wednesday

I still cannot understand why in cases like this the parents are never charged with a crime.Let me use this example.I sure many of you heard about this.. Ok Allowing your kids to play on scooters outside the house on a quiet street seems innocent--and common--enough. But a Texas mom was arrested and spent the night in jail after a neighbor complained that the children were unsupervised.

The parent, Tammy Cooper, disputes the "humiliating" charge, saying she was watching the kids, ages 6 and 9, the whole time from a lawn chair.

But police took the neighbor at her word, and a few hours after the call, arrested Cooper for child endangerment. Cooper told KPRC that the arresting officer told her, "We're here for you."

The accused parent spent the night behind bars. "Orange jump suit, in a cell, slammed the door, for 18 hours," she said.

So you would think a mother paying someone dangerous more than $6,000 to have her daughter smuggled into the United States would be charged with child endangerment, child negligence,etc,etc.. From what I understand the child and mother have been reunited. The mother will not face any criminal charges.But let your kids play outside and you get arrested and put in jail. Work that one out.
