A California National Guardsman was arrested earlier this month for allegedly smuggling migrants into the United States for money, FOX NEWS REPORTS.
Private First Class Edward Jair Acosta-Avila was pulled over in San Diego, about two miles from the U.S.-Mexico border, USA Today reported. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials arrested Acosta-Avila and four other individuals – including a U.S. citizen and three undocumented Mexican nationals who were hiding under a blanket in the back seat, the report said.
Acosta-Avila lied to the Border Agents during the investigation as well, as pointed out by the Border Patrol, Avila stated that he and the U.S. citizen were going to split $400 dollars betwen the two of them for smuggling the illegal aliens into the United States.
The investigation revealed that Avila and the 4 others charged $6-7 thousand per each illegal they attempted to smuggle into the United States.
The man was driving a car that was stopped at the border around 4 p.m. Agents interviewed the five people inside the car, all men, and determined two were U.S. citizens and the other three were undocumented Mexican nationals, Customs and Border Protection Officer Ralph Desio said.
The driver of the car claimed to be a California National Guardsman in the process of separating from the service, according to Desio. But National Guard spokesman Lt. Col Jonathan Shirmo said was not with the National Guard and was instead believed to be a U.S. Army reservist. Fox 5 Local News
Acosta-Avila and the U.S. citizen were charged in federal court with human trafficking. A complete disgrace to the Uniform, he needs to face UCMJ charges as well and be stripped of rank and booted out.
