It was very interesting. The man was so driven that he put his life and his families life in jeopardy.He's one of those A type ego driven personalities,even taking his whole family on a "vacation" not telling them he was smuggling people back with them. People will never quit trying to get here.We have everything you could want in life. Unfortunately it's stretching the taxpayers to the limit.
