GOP Senator: DHS is involved in human smuggling at the border


Apparently, the Department of Homeland Security has been involved in helping children cross the border to reunite with their illegal alien parents–and Sen. David Vitter is demanding an investigation.

Crossing border

Vitter said he is “shocked to learn that the federal government is a participant in an international human smuggling conspiracy.”

Last month, United States District Judge for the Southern District of Texas Andrew Hanen chided DHS for helping to helping to deliver an illegal immigrant child, detained at the border with her human smuggler, to her illegal immigrant mother living in Virginia. The mother had agreed to pay $8,500 to have human smugglers bring the child to her from El Salvador.
