  • According to a Washington Post article 10/07/06, Trafficking as an industry is thriving: The average price for being smuggled through a port of entry in the Tijuana-San Diego area - usually in the trunk of a car or using false or borrowed documents - has increased from $300 in 1994 to $2,500 in 2006. Crossing through the Arizona desert costs around $1,800. The article points out that this market value for facilitating crossings gives "coyotes" a strong incentive to keep illegal traffic flowing by innovating new and diverse methods for crossing.
