Report lauds Arizona wire-transfer tracking work

Report lauds Arizona wire-transfer tracking work

By searching wire transfers for suspicious activity involving large sums of money flowing into Arizona from Mexico, Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard's office was able to track the payoffs to drophouses where smugglers stashed illegal immigrants until they received payment.

From 2004 to 2006, Arizona seized about $20 million in cartel assets, arrested hundreds of smugglers and shut down 22 businesses that laundered the smugglers' money.
