I feel there's a missing part of the story he didn't mention ... I don't believe this was his first attempt to smuggle drugs ... swallowing 48 bags of cocaine in Mexico and taking a flight to the US is a huge leap and is in no way his first attempt.

Beautiful example of acknowledging privilege. What a kind soul I really do hope that he gets everything that he wants and needs.
