A multinational law enforcement investigation led to the arrest of three alleged human smugglers in Brazil. The ring is charged with trafficking migrants from East Africa and the Middle East to Brazil and then to the U.S. Officials with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations announced on Wednesday, the arrest of three alleged human smugglers by law enforcement authorities in Brazil. Statements from ICE and the Department of Justice report that Brazilian authorities executed search warrants leading to the arrests of Abdifatah Hussein Ahmed (a Somalian national); Abdessalem Martani (an Algerian national); and Mohsen Khademi Manesh (an Iranian national), on charges they allegedly smuggled individuals from East Africa and the Middle East to Brazil. From there, the suspects would arrange to continue the smuggling through Mexico and ultimately, the United States, officials stated.
We commend todays efforts by our Brazilian counterparts to take decisive action under their recently enacted human smuggling laws against criminal networks that threaten the national security of Brazil, the United States and other nations, Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski of the Justice Departments Criminal Division said in a written statement. Such collaborative efforts with our foreign law enforcement partners show our collective resolve to hold international human smugglers to account to the fullest extent of the law.
The arrests fall under new human smuggling laws enacted in Brazil that are designed to target these criminal networks that are facilitating the movement of these migrants through Brazil and into the U.S.

Hopefully Brazil and all the other cooperating countries will seize every asset these men have and split it among themselves.
Muslim Jihadi railway to the heartland.
Hmmm. Raghead names. What a surprise. /s
The media only cares about the rainforest fires and how they can blame it on Bolsinaro.
The poor huddled masses coming across the southern border may not be so poor after all. Swiss journalist Urs Gehriger recently visited African migrants who breached the border and hung out on the streets of San Antonio, Texas, waiting to go elsewhere in the country, and he met hostility from people who didnt want to share details about their experiences, conflicted each other, and had rolls of $100 bills. In a recording played on Fox News, Gehriger asks a migrant from Congo how she got to America. She refused to say.
As Gehriger continued to ask simple questions, he said they backtracked and were not answering at all. They wouldnt tell me anything about how they got here, and then they started to get aggressive and they were contradicting each other, he told Laura Ingraham. One said they ran through the forest, and another said no, there was no forest, and they were actually arguing among themselves, Gehriger said. He said they started to get aggressive after questions about money and help.
Gehriger believes the illegals were coached on giving answers to authorities. I had the impression that somebody told them not to speak about it, and acting like now were here, you have to help us, give us money. What I found from an aid worker there, they actually do have money. Quite a few of them, because he spotted them under a tree, right in front of the shelter, counting a roll of money with hundred dollar bills, Gehriger told Ingraham. Hundreds of migrants Congo and Angola were transported to San Antonio the week before, and city officials say they received no warning from the feds that they were coming. KENS published a story showing dozens of people milling around downtown, saying they arrived at the southern U.S. border by way of Ecuador. ETC...
Africans jump the border----seen holding wads of 100 dollar bills?
