How Much Do Coyotes Charge To Cross The US Border?

According to the reports below, it can cost anywhere from $500 to $10,000 dollars just to cross the actual border, depending on where you want to cross. It can cost $5,000 to $14,000 to have a coyote smuggle a person from Central America or Southern Mexico to the US border.

Cartel Coyotes charge different prices to smuggle people across the southern border with Mexico. It varies widely, depending on where you want to cross, how you want to cross, the coyote that is used and the overall situation. However, here are some recent examples, from Noticias Univision (subtitled). I will add more information to this post as I find it. So, come back to this page for updates.

The great majority of illegal crossers pay a cartel to cross, because it can be very dangerous for an illegal border crosser to transit Mexico or to cross the border without the permission of the local cartel that controls the territory for the purposes of trafficking humans, drugs or whatever contraband is being smuggled. That means when they arrive in the US they virtually all have contacts and are already engaged with the cartels.

The building of 450 miles of 18 and 30-foot-high bollard fence has made it much more difficult to cross in those places where it was built and that has driven up the price of crossing. It is basic supply and demand. Fewer places to cross easily and many people wanting to cross now means the price to cross goes up.

HOW DO THEY PAY SUCH COSTS?

They pay the cost of crossing from their savings, borrowing money from family/friends, selling property, etc. The cartel may loan them up to 50% of the cost. The illegal may be working for the cartel to pay back the loan after they cross, engaged in criminal activity. This helps expand these criminal organizations in our own country.

If you want to see where that can lead, just look at the tens of thousands of murders by the cartels every year in Mexico with assassinations of politicians, journalists and others who do not cooperate. The cartels are a kind of shadow government in Mexico and truth be known they are already exerting significant influence over our own government.

The United Nations Refugee Agency, NGO’s, social-justice churches and nonprofits help “refugees” with their needs on both sides of the border. The UN can coordinate and provide Internet-enabled cell phones with paid service plans for communications and debit cards with an allowance for basic expenses. Other nonprofit groups may provide food, clothes, medical aid, legal advice, etc.

Foundations, corporations and individuals can donate for this specific cause to help traffick people from Latin American and other places into the US. The smuggling cartels, progressive Democrats, nonprofit groups, leftist churches and even some US/Mexican governmental agencies are, in effect, all working in conjunction to traffick these people, thereby growing this criminal network and influence of cartels in the United States.

JUST CROSSING THE BORDER – HEARSAY

A person who claimed to be knowledgeable said in April, 2021 that to cross the border in San Diego, it cost $7,500 for Latin Americans and $10,000 for Chinese. He told me this at the refugee camp in Tijuana at El Chaparral border crossing. The Trump fence has been largely completed, for now, in San Diego and is quite formidable and there are a lot of Border Patrol Agents in the area.

    The cost alone should keep them home where they belong! How stupid can all fo them be? They have a country and we do NOT want them here! So what future can they have here when we are beginning to detest them all for their invasion! It keeps the ones that came legally at bay too as their own people cause so much trouble and are not assimilated or truly want to be Americans, they are just moochers with their hand outs! Make Mexico a better place and stand up for yourself there…NOT HERE as we have laws and customs that they do not want to join in on and demand us to be like them and we do NOT want to! We are Americans and that is who we are &this is OUR nation!!!

      Most don’t come from Mexico any longer, since quite a few years, already. Most come from Central America and the Caribbean. Many come also from Africa and Asia. A lot of Mexicans don’t want them coming through their country, either, likely getting stuck at the border in Mexico.
