Major Human Trafficking Organization Brought Down In European Operation To Protect Border Security

(Tea Party 247) – There’s big money to be made in the human smuggling business and anywhere there are free societies you can bet there are criminal organizations seeking to make big bucks off a people looking to illegally move. We mostly think about our own issues at the Southern border and are very familiar with illegal immigrants paying smugglers to sneak them into the US so they can enjoy all of the benefits of being an illegal immigrant here.

The US is not alone in the fight for secure borders, despite what the leftist media would have us believe. European countries also have laws regulating the crossing of their borders and despite Europe opening their arms to the migration of hundreds of thousands of African and Middle Eastern migrants, they still take border security very seriously.

A major criminal migrant smuggling organization has just been brought down by the British Royal Gibraltar Police and the Spanish National Police with the support of Europol. The organization has reportedly been smuggling illegal immigrants from Morocco to Europe.

Homeland Security Today reports:

The operation led to 47 arrests, house searches in Gibraltar and Spain and the seizure of €19,000 in cash, 12 smartphones, five cars and various documents. A total of 16 devices were successfully examined: six mobile phones, four media storage devices and six SIM cards.

The organized crime group, active in Morocco, Gibraltar and Spain, was facilitating the U.K. visa application procedure in the British embassy in Rabat. Each migrant paid between €7,000 and €8,000 to the facilitators. The criminal organization would have gained about €1 million from these illegal activities. Drivers, taxi drivers and staff to manage travel tickets – also part of the organization – charged migrants an additional €100 to €200 on top of the €500 to €700 paid for secondary movements within the European Union (EU).

Once the visas were granted, the migrants arrived in Gibraltar by plane or ferry from Morocco. In Gibraltar they were picked up by members of the organized criminal group and driven to Spain, hidden in off-road vehicles with tinted windows. In Spain, the migrants were provided with temporary accommodation or bus tickets to travel to another part of Spain or cross over to other EU Member States.

Europol supported the investigation with intelligence analysis and facilitated the information exchange. It deployed a mobile office in Gibraltar and Spain to cross-check operational information against Europol’s databases. Additionally, forensic extractions of devices were carried out at Europol’s headquarters and the results were analysed by experts from Europol’s European Migrant Smuggling Centre.

Much like the United States, European countries take border security seriously and have enforcement agencies to uphold the laws. Unfortunately, progressive lawmakers have made life in European countries all too comfortable for those who reside there illegally, just like liberal lawmakers have done here in the US. Migrants are willing to spend thousands to be smuggled in like drugs because they know it’s an investment that will pay off.

Thankfully, Britain, Spain, and Gibraltar have taken a stand against this type of illegal human smuggling. Hopefully it will act as a deterrent for future smugglers and illegal migrants alike.

  1. Worldwide these lawmakers don’t know what illegal means when it comes to immigrants. If they want to come into citizenship then do so legally. They should also be made to be a productive citizen and not drain the society. This should be checked on a few times a year, just like a probation officer does. If they’re sponges then they go back. It’s an insult to those who had taken the time to go through the proper channels. Contrary to the overwhelming evidence there seem to be more criminals than not. Democrats and liberals need to start waking up. We are going to have our country taken over and be subservient to these immigrants. They are not stupid like our Democratic Party, and the squad. Get rid of them all.

  2. This is why a wall must be all the way across the southern border.How Sane people can be against this is incomprehensible ,but on the other hand Democrats love criminals and also ARE c riminals

  3. For some reason this article neglects to mention how many of these smuggled migrants were children. Children many times act as covers, making it seem it is a family crossing the borders.

  4. Who ever is responsible for taken these illegals in, should be executed! You want to put a stop to this, stop these PsOS!

  5. Because the Deep State is not only in the US. The Elitest group is global now more than ever. Backed by such criminals as George Soros. Middle East oil mongrels, and a whole bunch of elites now in the US. That is why these these criminals will just be replaced with money from the Global Deep State. This problem will never go away, much like the global drug cartels contaminating all of todays society

  6. I love our military, but let me tell you about a very small percent that are also involved in human trafficking.
    First they do a tour or two at a U S base in Europe or Asia and of course meet a woman in a gentleman’s club. Eventually he paints a picture of a wonderful life in the USA for this 20 to 30 year old beauty, often marring them so it is easier to get them in the US. All is great until they are forced to work the clubs in the US to drum up clientele. This becomes the entrepreneurs 401k. She can’t run cause he has her passport, he might even buy her a car, because if she runs he has title on the car and tells the authorities she sole his car. This is happening at every military base in our wonderful country. Our Military knows this happening but don’t want the press. Easy to catch them by military databases finding these couples with no kids. I have already sent this to a number of media groups recently, so like this article it should be coming out soon.

  7. So they let Europe fill up ti the eyeballs with invasers & then make a token gesture of border protection. These people will be let off. This is a leftist squeeze operation to put the hurt on their leftist competition for human & drug trafficking.

  8. BUILD THE WALL ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE BORDER, THIS WILL ALLOW BETTER CONTROL OF THE PORTS AND AIRPORTS. PLUS SAVE THE TAX PAYERS BILLIONS IF YOU DEPORT ALL ILLEGALS.
