US Soldier Admits Smuggling Illegal Aliens for ‘Mexican Transnational Criminal Organization’

Brandon Darby, Breitbart, September 5, 2013

An active duty member of the U.S. Army has admitted to his role in smuggling illegal aliens for what authorities are calling a Mexican “transnational criminal organization,” according to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. federal court.

The soldier, Carlos Vives Feliciano, is described in the court documents as being “an active member of the United States Army, stationed at Fort Bliss, El Paso, Texas.” He was caught by U.S. Border Patrol in a vehicle with another man carrying what authorities have described as as “alien smuggling load.”

Though the U.S. authorities do not specifically label the “transnational criminal organization” as a cartel, the court documents do reveal that the organization in question is based in Palomas, Chihuahua, Mexico. {snip}


This is not the first time Mexican “transnational criminal organizations” have recruited U.S. military servicemen into their criminal efforts. A recent report shows three previous incidents in which U.S. soldiers were hired as hit men or assassins for Mexican cartels.
