“A New Jersey-based migrant gang is smuggling hordes of illegal [sic] immigrants into the US across the Canadian border for a price of $6,000 a head, a new report reveals. The human smuggling gang took root after its founders were briefly detained and cut loose by federal immigration authorities. The ringleaders, migrants from Guatemala and Colombia, snuck across the Mexican border and set up shop in the Garden State, running the lucrative scheme while dodging the feds, according to a report by the Daily Mail. While US Border Patrol agents grapple with an overwhelming flow of asylum seekers from Mexico, the Jersey-based gang has helped spark an under-the-radar surge in crossings along the northern border, the outlet said.” (02/04/24)
