According to CNN,
A human smuggling ring used non-Spanish speaking African-Americans to drive suspected illegal immigrants across the U.S.-Mexican border to the Los Angeles area, according to immigration authorities.
The investigation started January 2010 and it appears as though 1,000 people were smuggled across the border during that time. They drove vehicles with hidden compartments and even had some locked inside trunks. Five Los Angeles residents have been indicted on charges.
