Presentation Title: Crisis on the Border: Experience of a Federal Special Prosecutor

 Presentation Description:

Matt C. Pinsker will share his experience as a federal prosecutor on the  Mexican/American border. He will be going into the details of the human smuggling and illegal immigration operations at the border, providing a behind-the-scenes look at how persons illegally enter the country, the conditions at the border, and what the government is doing to stop it. He provides not publicly known information about payments, logistics, and more in a non-political and non-partisan talk. Matt Pinsker discusses the danger posed to Americans and illegal aliens alike by the Mexican drug cartels who make over $20 billion per year smuggling people into the US.
