Migrant Trafficking

21 million with thousands of families impacted by local wars, terrorism, climate change, and poverty, have combined in the recent decade and contributed to a flourishing business in illegal people smuggling targeting those who are willing to risk everything for a “new life”. From the US/Mexican border to the Mediterranean Sea, this episode will look close up at two different kinds of borders and human smuggling. Analyzing the various context, networks involved, chain of command, and human experiences with the insights of Border Angel’s Enrique Morones, and UN Refugee Agency analysts, we will assess the economics of this trade and the sanctions which may help prevent it.
