I Want To Know

I keep hearing about immigrants who have entered The United States because they are “Fleeing From Poverty” in their own home countries. Many of these are telling news reporters that they had to pay as much as $8,000 (Eight Thousand Dollars) to a smuggler to get them into the United States.

What I want to know is, “If these immigrants are “Fleeing From Poverty” where are they getting these very large sums of money to pay to the smugglers to get them into the country?

I smell a fish somewhere!

  1. In many cases, the extended families of the smuggled immigrants use all their money and valuables, and sometimes take out loans from loan sharks that they have to repay for their whole lifetime. I doubt they make the decision lightly, John.
    Best wishes, Pete.
