Federally trained deputies from the Maricopa County Sherriff’s office arrested five illegal aliens, four of whom were from the Chinese mainland. The arrests took place on September 22, 2009, and occurred at a traffic stop as part of an ongoing human smuggling investigation according to a press release from the Sheriff’s office.
The arrests were made under the controversial 287g agreement that has recently been modified by the Department of Homeland Security to exclude arrests of aliens that were not made in the commission of a crime. The Chinese arrests illustrate the importance of continuing an unfettered 287g program and the vital role local law enforcement plays in dealing with the illegal immigration crisis.
The Chinese suspects apparently boarded a plane in Beijing, China, but their journey began from Fu Jian Province, which is on the southeast coast of China directly across the Strait from Taiwan. Interestingly, the suspects were found to be in possession of Cuban currency, a startling discovery which highlights the scope of international smuggling operations.
“If people are being smuggled into the United States illegally from a communist country like China through Mexico, who knows where else they could be coming from,” remarked Sheriff Arpaio.
Of particular concern was the well rehearsed and professional nature of the smuggling operation. “These people seemed to be very well coached on what to tell deputies during questioning,” remarked Sgt. Madrid of the Sheriff’s Human Smuggling Unit.
These arrests tend to underscore the potential threat of terrorists entering the country through the Mexico corridor. If Chinese nationals can make their way in to the United States through a sophisticated network that includes a Cuban connection providing economic resources, it is quite conceivable that a terrorist organization that is probably better organized and financed could accomplish the same objective with relative ease
