A Bangladeshi national formally residing in Tapachula, Mexico, pleaded guilty for his role in a scheme to smuggle aliens from Mexico into the United States.
Mohamad Milon Hossain, 39, admitted that from March 2017 to June 2019, he conspired to bring, and brought, Bangladeshi nationals to the United States at the Texas border in exchange for payment.
Hossain operated out of Tapachula, Mexico, where he maintained a hotel that housed aliens on their way to the United States.
Hossain provided plane tickets and other assistance for the aliens to travel from Tapachula to Monterrey, Mexico where co-conspirator Moktar Hossain assisted their illegal crossing into the United States.
Hossains brazen scheme to smuggle Bangladeshi aliens into the United States put our national security at risk, said Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski of the Justice Departments Criminal Division.
