US President Joe Biden’s administration has imposed sanctions on an alleged Pakistan-based human smuggling organisation, Abid Ali Khan Transnational Organization, after it was found involved and guilty of smuggling migrants to America.

In a statement, the US Treasury Department confirmed that it has blacklisted Pakistan’s Abid Ali Khan for running a prolific human smuggling organisation. Khan was indicted on Wednesday by a federal grand jury in the Eastern District of Virginia for allegedly leading the whole process of smuggling undocumented people into the US from Pakistan and Afghanistan.

The decision by the Treasury department comes in the wake of a sharp increase in apprehensions on the US-Mexico border, posing serious political challenges to the new administration.
