The Department of Justice (DOJ) announced that a Bangladeshi national who resided in Mexico pleaded guilty to organizing a smuggling ring which he used to help his fellow countrymen enter the United States illegally.
“Mohamad Milon Hossain, 39, admitted that from March 2017 to June 2019, he conspired to bring, and brought, Bangladeshi nationals to the United States at the Texas border in exchange for payment,” a DOJ press release said. “Hossain operated out of Tapachula, Mexico, where he maintained a hotel that housed aliens on their way to the United States.”
Hossain reportedly purchased plane tickets for the illegal aliens to travel from his home base in Tapachula to Monterrey, Mexico where a co-conspirator, Moktar Hossain, would then help the illegal aliens cross into the United States.
He is being prosecuted in the Southern District of Texas.
The DOJ’s Criminal Division Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski praised the work of local and federal law enforcement, while admonishing Hossain’s operation.
“Hossain’s brazen scheme to smuggle Bangladeshi aliens into the United States put our national security at risk,” he said. “This guilty plea underscores the Department’s commitment to working with our law enforcement partners here and abroad to disrupt the flow of illegal aliens into the United States and bring human smugglers to justice.”
Border hawks have long noted that it’s not just Central and South Americans who cross the U.S. Southern border illegally, but that smuggling organizations from all of the world have set up shop in Mexico to unknowns into the United States, posing a grave national security risk.
Kris Kobach, U.S. Senate Candidate and former Kansas Secretary of State noted as much when speaking with The Rundown News in January.
“This is a perfect example of why we need a border wall along the entirety of the southern border,” he said, “because the southern border has become a staging point for people from Asia, Africa, and South America to enter the United States.
“The only thing that serves as a deterrent is a border wall combined with the multiplying effect of Border Patrol. The more wall that is built, the more Border Patrol can monitor.”
