MCALLEN, Texas — An illegal alien who had been allowed to stay in the U.S. under the DREAM act has been charged with human smuggling for his alleged role in a conspiracy that included a gun carrying woman and a drag queen.

Juan Valdez Molina and Cindy Rojas both remain in federal custody facing human smuggling charges following their recent arrest at the Falfurrias Border Patrol Checkpoint, the criminal complaint filed by Border Patrol which was obtained by Breitbart Texas revealed.

The two had been traveling north with two illegal aliens when the agents at the checkpoint sent them to a secondary inspection. After giving a series of conflicting stories, the two aliens confessed to being in the country illegally. When the border patrol agents arrested Rojas they found a loaded handgun in her purse.

During questioning Rojas told the agents that she had met a drag queen named Alex at a gay bar in the border city of Brownsville who hired her to take two aliens north. Rojas then recruited Valdez who had obtained a social security card and an ID because even though he was an illegal alien he was protected under the DREAM Act, court records obtained by Breitbart Texas revealed. The two were to take the aliens to Houston in exchange for $1,500 of which Rojas would keep $1,000 and pay the rest to Valdez.
