Just a strange story. The son of a member of the U.S. House of Representatives (Allen Boyd, D-FL) has been arrested for smuggling in immigrants.
According to a criminal complaint outlining the accusations, John Boyd was driving his pickup Sunday near Wilcox, Ariz., when it was stopped for inspection at a Border Patrol checkpoint.
"At the primary inspection area, a Border Patrol K-9 alerted to the possible presence of illegal aliens in the bed of the truck," states the complaint.
"The four individuals all admitted that they were not citizens or nationals of the United States and that they did not have permission to be in the United States legally," the complaint states.
They said they had agreed to pay $3,000 each to be smuggled into the United States.
So this is what we've come to. Congress fails to pass immigration reform, so its children become coyotes, stuffing people into their trucks at $3,000 a pop. I guess where some see failure, others see a business opportunity.
