Radical Islamic cleric nabbed sneaking into US from Mexico

He trekked across on foot and paid a coyote $5000 to let him ride north in the trunk of a Beemer.

Said Jaziri, the former Imam of a Muslim congregation in Montreal, was hidden inside a car driven by a San Diego-area man who was pulled over by U.S. Border Patrol agents near an Indian casino east of San Diego. Jaziri allegedly paid a Tijuana-based smuggling group $5,000 to get him across the border near Tecate, saying he wanted to be taken to a “safe place anywhere in the U.S.”

Surely he was just looking for a better life, maybe attend some college classes, right?
