'Pedro Zapeta spent 11 years scrubbing pots in a Florida restaurant, dreaming of the day when he would have enough money to buy a small plot of land in his native Guatemala and build a house for his mother and sisters. When he was ready, he stuffed his $59,000 (£29,000) life savings in a duffel bag and headed for the airport.
But he never made it home. US customs inspectors seized the cash, suspecting that Mr Zapeta was a drugs courier, and immigration officials arrested him for being in the country illegally. Now, after a two-year legal battle in Miami, Mr Zapeta is to be deported while the US treasury keeps the money he earned washing dishes at an average hourly rate of $5.50 (£2.70).'

Do you honestly believe that this guy saved $59,000? Please...
Bulk cash smuggling is very previalent, so much so that COngress made it a crime and even passed CAFRA so that innocent poeple would have a legal remedy to get their money back.
Illegals wire their money back home on a monthly basis, they do not keep it in a duffle bag, because they know that they will be the vicitm of at least five robberies (by other illegals) over the course of a few years.
Stop talking out of your ass, because you have no idea what you are talking about.
