U.S. authorities have long focused their efforts on the cartels’ trafficking of cocaine, marijuana, heroin and methamphetamines, which has left a trail of violence and corruption.

Many of those officials now say that the toll from smuggling illegal immigrants is often far worse.
Even more reason to secure our borders. Illegal immigration is a very lucrative enterprise, so it is no surprise that these scumbag cartels would become involved. How anyone can condone human trafficking, under the guise of helping these people “seek a better life” is beyond me.
