Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Defendant's conviction and sentence for transporting illegal aliens are affirmed where: 1) the district court did not abuse its discretion in applying a reckless endangerment enhancement; 2) defendant presented no evidence to suggest that the "financial gain" aspect of 18 U.S.C. section 1324(a)(1)(B)(ii) erroneously informed the district court's decision; and 3) defendant's sentence would not have been affected by a reduction based on smuggling aliens other than for profit.
