A career smuggler nabbed while guiding four immigrants through the Otay Mountains last year was sentenced Friday to five years in prison.U.S. Border Patrol agents had caught Efrain Delgado Rosales with undocumented immigrants 23 times in less than 17 years, according to the U.S. attorney’s office.
His latest encounter came in November, when agents spotted the 35-year-old guiding the foursome through rugged East County terrain.
The four men told authorities that Delgado had picked them up at a stash house in Mexico, led them to the border then left them for several hours. As they waited, thieves turned up and robbed them of all of their cash — thousands of dollars.
Delgado returned and — indifferent to the robbery — guided them over the border and through the mountains. While hiking, he left behind three men who could not keep his pace.
At the begging of the fourth man, he eventually returned to collect the distressed trio, each of whom had paid $5,000 to be smuggled into the country.
Federal prosecutors said agents have apprehended Delgado 24 times since 1999, and in all but one instance, he was found with at least two and up to 46 undocumented immigrants.

But when you mention a border wall, or drug smuggling by illegals, people get the vapors. I'm sure if these men have children born on American soil, we can count on Hillary to do all she can to protect them and keep them (them = the men) here.

Notice that at the end of the article, under the copyright, there is a hyperlink that says "This article is related to: Theft." Why wasn't immigration added as a search term?

If you look closely at the judicial system, they can be arrested 1000 times does not mean won't be convicted or sentenced for a long period of time. Left 3 to die. Not attempted murder?
