"Coyote" headed to Nashville arrested with 15 in truck bed

"For more than two days in intense heat they sat tightly jammed into a covered six-by-ten truck bed, often without a bathroom break."

"With just hours to go, a speeding ticket put an end to the American dream for 15 illegal immigrants traveling through Kenton County."

"The group's alleged coyote or transporter, Jose Rodriguez-Ramos was pulled over for speeding while taking the Mexicans to Nashville from Phoenix, possibly for future employment. Officials said they had first come illegally from Mexico by another way."

"Rodriguez-Ramos now faces 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine."

"The 15 other illegal aliens will be brought back to Covington as material witnesses and will then be deported to Mexico, they will not face any charges."
