Federal authorities are looking at new ways to keep millions of dollars out of the hands of immigrant smugglers.

For years, authorities have documented how criminals exploit Western Union, MoneyGram and other wire transfer services.

Authorities said the families of illegal immigrants often pay human smugglers through wire transfer services.

Cornyn said an illegal immigrant from Mexico may pay $1,000 dollars or more while an illegal immigrant from China may pay up to $40,000.

He said federal law enforcement agencies are now looking at new ways to close loopholes and cut off a pipeline worth millions dollars.

yeah he is saying it, but they won't do that unless one of these criminals pisses someone else off, they are well connected with law enforcement agents (smugglers and drug traffickers) Sorry to burst your bubble the world is not what it seems, I'm sure they're use some fake business as a front to justify their operations, and the authorities won't see "anything unusual"

Why would there be a bubble to burst? I simply posted an article for discussion.

Crooks are usually one step ahead. As such, it wouldn’t surprise me if they evade detection. After all, peasants have managed to breach our border security, and fleece U.S. taxpayers, so anything is possible.

Money being wired out of the country is a great place for the feds to look if the government needs money. Much of that money was the result of illegal drug transactions, human trafficking, prostitution, and untaxed illegally obtained wages.

No one is going to be outraged if they start finding ways to tax this money or if it's proceeds from illegal activities, confiscated. It will help Mexico too because much of this money ends up supporting the drug lords.

Hmmm? double Hmmmm?

It sure sounds like you have been there and done that.
What other criminal activities are you involved with?

I think the money is being wired into the country, right?
