Traffickers of human cargo need to be stopped

In order to secure and protect the border between Mexico and the United States, the coyotes must be hunted down, arrested and incarcerated. Coyotes are Mexican traffickers of illegal migrants. For a price, they will escort anyone across the border. Their fees range from $3,000 to $5,000 per person.

The coyotes know their way around the border wall, over the mountains and through the tunnels, and will bring their human cargo to its desired destination.

The coyotes must be stopped in order to discourage illegal border crossing. The border wall isn’t any detriment to the coyotes.

Therefore, I urge Congress to concentrate on the capture of the traffickers of human cargo, who are always successful in crossing the border, sometimes even twice in one week.

Most migrants prefer to hire a good coyote instead of making the crossing alone. I would too. And since the American visa is difficult to obtain in Mexico, even with all the requirements in hand, there will always be a demand for an experienced coyote. The obvious evil here is that coyotes will send their fellow citizens through dangerous places and life-threatening situations.
