AZ Senators Call For Harsher Penalties Against Human Smugglers
(Phoenix, AZ) -- Arizona senators John McCain and Jeff Flake are pushing for stronger penalties for human smugglers. A bill they've introduced in the Senate would also include greater punishment for people who bring unaccompanied migrant children to the border. The bill calls for human smugglers to get up to 20 years behind bars. Tens of thousands of unaccompanied children have been caught coming in from Mexico since October.
