Woman pleads guilty in deadly smuggling operation
By The Associated Press
(11/15/04 - HOUSTON) — A woman pleaded guilty Monday to her role in a human smuggling operation in which 19 illegal immigrants died after boarding a sweltering trailer.
Norma Gonzalez Sanchez was set to go to trial on Nov. 29 with three other defendants who prosecutors say were involved in the smuggling operation, the nation's deadliest.
She pleaded guilty to a charge of harboring and transporting illegal immigrants into the United States and causing serious injury or death to a person as a result.
One has to wonder just how large the illegal immigration problem in America is to force people to pay their way into the country while being transported in a trailer, “like cattle.”
