[Ed. – Seems to have been a fairly elaborate enterprise. The guy was arrested at JFK, apparently traveling internationally and probably as part of the smuggling scheme over the U.S.-Mexico border. This would not have been for the purpose of requesting asylum for nice families.]
The Department of Justice announced Monday afternoon a Jordanian national has been arrested after allegedly smuggling a number of special interest illegal aliens from Yemen into the United States through the southern border with Mexico. Special interest aliens come from countries with ties to terrorism and pose a significant risk to the safety of Americans.
Moayad Heider Mohammad Aldairi, who lives in Mexico, was arrested at JFK airport in New York. Aldairi is accused of being paid in 2017 to work as a human smuggler and trafficking six illegal aliens into the U.S. through Texas. According to prosecutors, Aldairi worked with others on the scheme.
“Aldairi allegedly smuggled six Yemeni citizens across the Mexican border and into the United States,” Assistant Attorney General Benczkowski released in a statement.
