TUCSON - A woman was arrested Tuesday for trying to smuggle a 2-year-old boy into the United States through the Douglas Port of Entry.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers became suspicious of 20-year-old Abigail Meraz Valenzuela while they were screening travelers applying for entry into the U.S. on Tuesday. She was pushing a
stroller with a young child, according to a news release from CBP.
Officers determined that Meraz was trying to smuggle the 2-year-old for monetary gain, and she was immediately arrested on charges of alien smuggling, the release states.
