THE WHITE HOUSE

Office of the Press Secretary


For Immediate Release May 31, 2001

PRESS BRIEFING BY
ARI FLEISCHER

............................

Q     Has the President supported a penalty for people who smuggle aliens on the border with Mexico. The one arrest in Arizona -- 14 Mexicans died. Does the President support the death penalty for those people involved in the smuggling of aliens on the border?

MR. FLEISCHER: As you know, after that tragedy took place, the President called Vicente Fox of Mexico to express our nation's condolences to those families who lost their lives trying to come to this country.

The President is very concerned about the people who exploit these immigrants who come to America for opportunity and for freedom. And there are people who exploit them by bringing them across the border in very dangerous fashion. And the President does support legal action to help protect people who would seek to come to this country, hopefully legally.
