Migrant smuggler pleads guilty at age 84


The organization handled between 60 and 80 migrants a month during peak times and between 40 and 60 a month during slower patches, the affidavit says. That amounts to monthly revenue of about US$280,000 in peak times.

Gurrola, who lived in the San Diego suburb of Chula Vista, and 10 others, including her daughter, were charged in April with immigrant smuggling.

Gurrola was earlier indicted for immigrant smuggling in 1982, but fled to Mexico, according to the affidavit.
