Illegal Alien Smuggled Cuban Women Into Florida And Then Enslaved Them Into Sex Work...

Once Silvio “Jander” Morales smuggled six women from Camaguey, Cuba into Miami, he shed any niceties like a moulting anaconda losing skin. Morales constricted the women into prostitution by mushrooming their debt, threatening their families’ lives and even threatening to feed one woman to alligators in the Everglades.

When one woman did so, he made an example of her. Morales drove her to the edge of the Everglades, punching her on the way. Upon reaching a bridge near the Everglades, he told her he was going to throw her into the alligators’ domain. Instead, after making sure she understood not to defy him again, he tossed her into the trunk and drove back to the complex.
