Lawyer Charged With Alien Smuggling

NPR's Margot Adler reports that a lawyer who operated one of the nation's largest immigration asylum firms and seven others were charged yesterday with helping smugglers sneak scores of Chinese into the country. The case marks the first time that members of a law firm have been indicted under the federal racketeering laws for alien smuggling.
