A Hispanic Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agent has been arrested for conspiring to smuggle illegal aliens into the United States
Immigrations and Customs Enforcement officers arrested David Alexander Díaz-Torres in Orlando, Florida, according to the Justice Department. Díaz-Torres and five others were charged in a 13-count indictment for bringing, transporting, harboring, and shielding illegal aliens within the United States. According to a Justice Department press release, a group of Brazilian nationals were smuggled through the Luis Muñoz Marín International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Díaz-Torres allowed the Brazilians through a TSA security checkpoint without questioning them. The group then flew to New York, Boston, and Philadelphia on commercial flights.
