ICE deports Pakistani man accused of facilitating the smuggling of terrorist into US through Central American and Mexico
The U.S. announced this week that it has deported Sharafat Ali Khan, a man convicted of running a major smuggling network for illegal immigrants from terrorist havens in Afghanistan and Pakistan.ICE withheld the names of others in the smuggling ring who it is still trying to capture and deport. The media which supports mass migration has ignored the threat posed by terrorists attempting to follow the same route.
Khan orchestrated the smuggling of more than 100 illegal immigrants from those regions. They would fly to Brazil, where he was based, then make their way up the spine of South America and Mexico to the U.S., using a network of people Khan worked with along the way, authorities said.
Some of the people smuggled “had suspected ties to terrorist organizations,” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said in announcing the deportation.
One of the men Khan helped reach the U.S. had been flagged on the terrorist no-fly list, with family ties to the Taliban, and had been implicated in a plot to conduct an attack in the U.S. or Canada, The Washington Times reported.
Khan, 33, was sent back to his home country of Pakistan, where authorities took custody of him without incident.
He had claimed he was just a cog in a larger smuggling operation but ICE Homeland Security Investigations agents said he was a major orchestrator.
