US Border Patrol Smuggling
Once an illegal alien is caught in the U.S. and deported back to where they came from, many keep attempting to come back. About four million actually get back in while only about a million are caught each year and sent back. Adult male Mexicans make up 98 out of 100 people caught at the border. Others may be non-Mexican or a female or juvenile. Since there are so many immigrants trying to get in, vehicles have to be used to patrol the border. There are over 2,000 US Border Patrol vehicles just in the western part of the border about 20 miles long. The vehicle includes a portable prison. Once the illegal alien is caught, the vehicle will bring them to a holding cell. A bus comes three times a day to pick up illegals.
Once the illegal alien is held under arrest, he or she has two options on how to get home, Administrative or Judicial. Administrative is voluntarily going home and then the immigrant is free of any charge, unless the illegal immigrant was previously deported or “wanted by any federal, state of local law enforcement agency.” The voluntary process is fast and simple. All the alien has to do is sign a paper, get on a bus to the Port of Entry, and go back home through the border. If the illegal immigrant wanted a judicial hearing, it could be a year until they got it, and it would be assigned to a US Attorney, so it isn’t the best choice. The decision the immigrant makes cannot be changed.
Re-crossing the border illegally is counted as a felony and if an illegal got caught they would get two years in prison. But if the illegal alien already had a felony, then he or she would get 10 years of prison. An “aggravated felony” committed in the U.S. would receive 20 years in prison. Illegal alien smuggling, drug trafficking, drug dealing, and drug manufacture are all aggravated felonies. An illegal immigrant that has been caught once previously and was deported can never return to the U.S. and live there legally. If they are caught another time, they will have just go to prison again.
