Juan is seen and heard offering copious helpful tips on how to do just that, and how to get away with it.

    This story isn't over, and Fox isn't the only network telling the truth about this, even though they often are.

    Well, actually FOX has also reported that the attorney who gave all the helpful advice including suggesting that they smuggle the girls through the town where his cousin is a cop reported the incident to his cousin and was then put in contact with a US task force on human smuggling. (See http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,553423,00.html)

    Yes, I read that brief report from Fox. But there is only a claim that Vera made any legitimate effort to report this. No paperwork was filed with police. Like I said, this isn't over.

    As I read the story, the reporters confirmed the information with the police: "National City police said Monday that Juan Carlos Vera contacted his cousin, a police detective, to get advice on what to with information on possible human smuggling."

    I am sure that there are some sincere people involved with ACORN. Such people would be attracted to an organization that purports to be for helping "the little people". And it would also not be the first time that an organization that started out idealistically later became corrupt.

    I'm still sort of amazed that the people in those ACORN offices believed that someone wanting to start such an illegal business would actually go blabbing about it to anyone. And why would the ACORN people not just tell those people that they could not aid and abet them in an illegal enterprise? I could understand if all of the ACORN office people had then gone to report to the police to set up some kind of a "sting".

    Just like the Taliban. They started out to protect villagers from ruthless warlords that popped up after the Soviet withdrawl left Afghanistan in anarchy. They actually sounded noble in their original roles, but power quickly corrupted.
