Notes Organized Crime, Street Gangs Serve as Conduits
By Harold Hutchison
The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) has issued a report describing how Mexican cartels and street gangs are being used as conduits by people from countries in Africa and Asia, including terror havens like Somalia. The report also provides a cost figure for those entering the U.S. illegally: $7500.
The 82-page report from UNODC not only details how illegal aliens are brought into the country, it also outlines how drugs, including cocaine, are brought in as well. It also discusses who is involved in smuggling people into the United States, and also notes that many women and girls who are “irregular migrants” wind up being trafficked for sexual purposes.
