PHOENIX - A man pleaded guilty in federal court on Oct. 19 to operating a human smuggling stash house out of a trailer park in Phoenix, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
All of the immigrants were from Mexico and Guatemala, officials said. An investigation revealed that the trailer was part of a smuggling operation where migrants were taken illegally across the U.S. - Mexico border near Nogales and taken to Phoenix.
Barragan-Cisneros, who is from Mexico, admitted to transporting and harboring migrants for profit. He faces 10 years in prison, a maximum fine of $250,000, or both.
Homeland Security, Border Patrol and the U.S. Attorney's Office all played a role in the investigation and prosecution.
