This is an outrage!

Florida Rep. Allen Boyd's son was arrested in Arizona Sunday and charged with human smuggling after K-9 dogs allegedly sniffed out individuals hiding in the bed of his truck.

John F. Boyd attempted to drive through a Border Patrol security check in Willcox, court documents revealed, according to KVOA-TV in Phoenix. Five illegal aliens, including a 6-year-old girl, were found in the truck.

In a statement sent to FOXNews.com, the Democratic congressman acknowledged that his son attended a preliminary hearing on Monday and was charged with "alien smuggling."

I do NOT believe in punishing others for the mistake of family/friends, but a Congressman is in a position of power, a position of legalizing illegals and try to protect his son. I think he should be allowed to remain in Congress, BUT not in any kind of Committee positions, where he can facilitate illegal alien amnesties.

What do YOU think???
