Just thought this was interesting. They Uber cars from Mexico into the United States for 3,000 pesos ($162). As crooked as Uber is, I wouldn't put it past them to be looking to get in on this action. Tell ICE "we are not coyotes, we are a technology company."

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Human traffickers are finding increasingly creative ways of shuttling Central American migrants through Mexico to the U.S. border and that includes hiring Uber-registered drivers.

On June 10, five vehicles carrying 34 Central American migrants were apprehended while traveling together between the northern Mexican states of Zacatecas and Coahuila, said Segismundo Doguin, a Coahuila state official at the National Migration Institute (INM).

Four of the vehicles were linked to the Uber Technologies Inc [UBER.UL] platform, Doguin said, but it was unclear whether the human smugglers had hailed the drivers using the Uber app. The drivers said they were not the owners of the cars but worked as Uber chauffeurs, he said.

Uber Mexico said in a statement that it bore no responsibility but was cooperating with authorities.

"The company does not own the cars registered on the platform, nor does it employ the drivers, who are independent contractors," Uber said.
