Description

Jerry Stuchiner, a former high-ranking American immigration official, became the center of inquiries by the governments of Hong Kong, the United States, and Honduras. He worked for the Immigration and Naturalization Service and was arrested in July of 1997 at the Hong Kong airport on charges of carrying fraudulent passports. The story investigates his many alleged transgressions, from misuse of a diplomatic passport to people smuggling. The story shows him to be naive and disgruntled, and under the influence of his own undercover informant, Hong Kong businessman Dickson Yao. The story also details the sordid world of people smuggling, a new multi-billion dollar industry rivaling arms and drugs.
