WASHINGTON - The son of a Florida congressman was arrested Sunday by U.S. Border Patrol agents near Willcox and charged with smuggling illegal immigrants.

Federal prosecutors allege that John Finlayson Boyd, 30, was smuggling four individuals in his pickup truck when he was stopped at a checkpoint. Two of them were lying on the floor behind the front seat and two others were concealed under a piece of plywood in the bed of the truck, prosecutors say.

Boyd is the son of Rep. Allen Boyd, D-Fla., whose family owns a farm in Florida and who has supported proposals to provide a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants who pay fines and back taxes.
