Migrants Pay Up to $20,000 to Cross US-Mexico Border

From insightcrime.org:

Heightened border security measures under the Obama administration has reportedly prompted Mexico’s human smugglers to charge high prices and switch to new tactics.

Human smugglers are devising increasingly sophisticated and expensive methods of moving migrants across the border, as Animal Politico reports.

According to one migrant who has crossed the border several times over the last 20 years, smugglers now offer a range of services priced between $3,000 to $20,000.
