Ecuador -- Springboard for Undocumented Chinese Immigrants?

World Journal, Posted: Feb 05, 2009

NEW YORK Peru police arrested nine undocumented Chinese immigrants and one human smuggler on Jan. 21. The World Journal reports that the 10 arrested hold fake Japanese passports. The Peru police said the group was traveling to Ecuador, with the United States as their final destination. Citizens of 130 countries, including China, no longer need a visa to enter Ecuador since June 20, 2008. Since then, Chinese human smugglers have taken undocumented immigrants to the country first before attempting to bring them to the United States. Human smugglers reportedly charge each undocumented immigrant $70,000. According to the World Journal, China's human smuggling industry netted $750 million last year.
