I’m not naive enough to think that all situations involving “illegal” immigrants are cotton candy. There are many incidence of human smugglers bringing people into this, and other, countries illegally hoping to scare them into doing what they want.
When we put fear into the hearts of those here illegally then we allow this type of thing to happen as these people fear that they have nobody to turn to.
These traffickers are another example of selfishness over the good of others.
From this story:
Upon speaking with the victims and witnesses, Derge said police were able to conclude there were up to five human smugglers, one as young as a 12-year-old boy, holding 15-20 immigrants, all males ranging in age from early 20s to early 40s, at gunpoint in the house.
