The Poder Judicial said prosecutors are seeking preventative detention for two persons facing allegations of trafficking migrants.
There are a woman with the last name of Rubí and a man with the last name of García, said the Poder Judicial. One was detained in an Avenida 10 apartment in San José, and the other was detained in La Pitahaya in Cartago.
The Poder Judicial said that the allegations are that the pair collected between $8,000 and $10,000 from each illegal migrant to hide them here and to provide them with false papers so they could continue their trip into the United States or Canada. The immigrants are from the Dominican Republic, the Poder Judicial said.
