MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Mexican prosecutors say they won a 60-year prison term for a human smuggler who helped about 200 people sneak into the U.S., including Hezbollah supporters.

Salim Boughader Mucharrafille was arrested in 2002 and convicted on organized-crime and immigrant-smuggling charges.

Boughader, a Mexican of Lebanese descent, ran a cafe in the city of Tijuana, across the border from San Diego, California.


Among those he smuggled were sympathizers of Hezbollah, a Lebanon-based group that U.S. authorities have labeled a terror organization.

The federal Attorney General's Office on Sunday said Boughader also was fined $6,000. Mexican prison terms are sometimes reduced for good behavior.

We should be just as hard on this scum, or worse to get the point across to all of them.

More reason to bring our troops home and line them up on the border.
