Crimes of compassion: US follows Europe's lead in prosecuting those who help migrants
By Tania Karas

More than 4,500 people were federally charged with bringing in and harboring migrants in fiscal year 2018, a 16 percent increase from fiscal year 2017, according to data from TRAC, the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University.
