The startling account is part of an online book on his life where Deckard recounts eight trips he made into Canada with undocumented Brazilian workers and their families in late 2007 and early 2008. He calls the period “the most interesting of my life.”
It would have to compete with his departure from Congress after an alcohol-related crash in 1982. He had served four terms in the Indiana House of Representatives and two terms representing the 8th District in Congress.
As for his career as a human smuggler, Deckard insists “[i]t was exciting; there is no question about that. It was something that very few people can say that they’ve done.”
That is certainly true.
