Alleged Human Smuggler Arrested For Transporting, Exploiting Minors

Amid growing illegal immigration across the U.S., an alleged human smuggler was recently arrested in Kentucky after having been charged with transporting children across the border and using them for lewd content, prompting criticism from Republicans who blame President Joe Biden for the southern border crisis.

The Post Millennial pointed out that 37-year-old Natividad Aguilera Garcia was arrested after being accused of smuggling three illegal immigrants, of which two were children and one was involved in the production of obscene content.

To try and avoid prosecution, Garcia falsely claimed that he was related to one of the minors. He even went to great lengths to provide authorities with a fake birth certificate, leading the Office of Refugee Resettlement to hand the child to him.

The Daily Mail reported that Garcia now faces several charges, such as online enticement of a minor, encouraging illegal entry, making false statements to federal agencies and presenting falsified documents to federal agencies, among others.

Homeland Security Committee Chairman Mark Green (R-TN) reacted to the news, telling the outlet that such “horrific” things would continue happening because Biden refuses to secure the southern border.

“These horrific stories are going to keep happening as long as President Biden and Secretary Mayorkas refuse to enforce our laws,” Green said.

The Tennessee congressman noted that the children are mistreated, “exploited, and used by the cartels in all manner of inhumane ways. Once they arrive here, the Biden administration releases most of them to ‘sponsors with minimal vetting.’”

“As one witness told my Committee last year, ‘It’s been said that it is harder to adopt a cat than it is to sponsor an unaccompanied minor,’” Green added. “President Biden, Secretary Mayorkas, and their Democratic enablers in Congress may see a political benefit in this crisis, but all I see are shattered lives and broken futures for some of the most innocent among us.”

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the eastern district of Kentucky said the scheme began on May 1, 2021, just four months into Biden’s tenure as illegal immigration increased dramatically.

In February 2024, the inspector general of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released a report, indicating that the agency could not prove it had fully vetted U.S. sponsors before releasing children to them during rising illegal immigration in 2021.
