The United States on Wednesday imposed sanctions on an alleged Pakistan-based human smuggling organization, accusing it of being involved in smuggling migrants to the United States, including foreign nationals that may pose a national security risk.
The move comes as a sharp increase in apprehensions on the US-Mexico border has posed one of the biggest political challenges to the new administration of US President Joe Biden.
The US Treasury Department in a statement said it blacklisted Pakistani national Abid Ali Khan and what it dubbed the Abid Ali Khan Transnational Criminal Organization, which the Treasury accused of being a "a prolific human smuggling organization," as well as three people and one entity associated with the organization.
