Bangladeshi man living in Tapachula pleads guilty to smuggling illegal people into U.S. via Mexico

Mohamad Milon Hossain, a Bangladeshi man, pleaded guilty last week to his role in smuggling his fellow countrymen into the United States from Mexico in exchange for payments, prosecutors said… Mohamad Milon Hossain, 39, admitted that from March 2017 to June 2019, he smuggled Bangladeshi nationals into the United States at the Texas border, according to a press release from the Justice Department...

Mohamad Milon Hossain operated out of Tapachula, Mexico, where he resided and maintained a hotel that housed illegal immigrants on their way to the United States… Mohamad Milon Hossain provided plane tickets and other assistance for the aliens to travel from Tapachula to Monterrey, Mexico, where alleged Bangladeshi co-conspirator Moktar Hossain assisted their illegal entry into the United States…


“Hossain’s brazen scheme to smuggle Bangladeshi aliens into the United States put our national security at risk,” said Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski. “This guilty plea underscores the department’s commitment to working with our law enforcement partners here and abroad to disrupt the flow of illegal aliens into the United States and bring human smugglers to justice.”


U.S. District Judge Diana Saldana accepted Mohamad Milon Hossain’s guilty plea. His sentencing has yet been scheduled.


“Border Security is national security,” said U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick of the Southern District of Texas. “Our DHS law enforcement partners work on both sides of the border to make sure it is secure. The Southern District of Texas is on the front line of the fight against illegal immigration and we will continue to lead the nation in doing so.”


“This plea is a clear statement that defendants who smuggle illegal aliens across the United States border for profit will face consequences in a U.S. courtroom,” said Special Agent in Charge Shane Folden of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) San Antonio. “HSI remains committed in aggressively investigating and prosecuting members of transnational criminal organizations that exploit and endanger the people they smuggle into the United States. We will continue to work with our law enforcement partners both domestic and international to maintain the integrity of our border and the safety of our communities.”
