A better life and a great future are some of the compelling temptations people succumb to, which in turn leads them to enter their dream country like the USA illegally. Moreover, illegal alien smugglers are always on the lookout for such gullible individuals and ready to profit on these people. Specifically, these unscrupulous elements charge large amounts of money for illegally smuggling people from their homeland to the United States.
Unfortunately, and sadly several of them are caught in transit and face heavy fines and penalties depending on the circumstances under which the smuggling was initiated. However, the Immigration authorities are very clear in the U.S. Any person whether on his own or through agent who willfully assists people in entering the United States without proper documents or even helping them in the slightest possible manner, and irrespective of this entity’s connections becomes liable for legal action. The subsequent charges could be as serious as felony and / or deportation.
Please also note that we have waiver applicants that have had this problem and CBP told them to get a US Entry Waiver.
Another concern is that Alien Smugglers often carry weapons to protect themselves from armed U.S. Border Patrol officers during their illegal entry into the United States. There is a chance that the people being smuggle can get injured in the crossfire if there is a gun battle between the smugglers and CBP. These same smugglers can also turn these weapons on the people being smuggled in order to force compliance with whatever task the smuggler is seeking to get completed.
