There is an interesting controversy brewing in Rhode Island where a high school vice principal, Stefani Harvey, sent an email to school staff seeking money to pay a “coyote” for transporting a student who entered the country illegally. Harvey was trying to help the student pay off the coyote fee, but there is a little problem with this fundraiser: transporting aliens is a federal crime. Even worse, these “contracts” for human smuggling often become human trafficking enterprises where those who cannot pay are used in prostitution or the drug trade.
Notably, Mount Pleasant High School Assistant Principal Harvey used her official title and email for the solicitation.
However, this is not the same as the school’s marching band fundraiser. Harvey mater-of-factly explained that the coyote charged $5,000 and was demanding $2,000 by a deadline of February 1, 2023.
Harvey told the staff “Our student needs our urgent support to raise another $2,000 to meet his goal of $5,000 by February 1st, 2023.” It is not stated what will happen if the student misses the date but the suggestion is that it will be both bad and outside of the law. Many of these coyotes are human traffickers who use the immigrants for prostitution, drug operations or other services if they cannot pay their fee.
Mount Pleasant Principal Tiffany Delaney addressed the email on Friday, writing “I was informed there was an email seeking financial support for one of our students. I appreciated the faculty and staff contributing to a cause that supports a student, but the nature of the request is not appropriate.”
“Not appropriate” is fairly tame. It is not known the status of the student beyond the illegal entry. It is a federal crime under 18 U.S.C. 1324(a)(1)(A)(i) and 1324(a)(2) to knowingly bring or attempt to bring into the United States an alien into the country illegally. Section 1324(a)(1)(A)(ii) makes it a crime for any person, with knowledge or reckless disregard of the alien’s illegal immigrations status, to transport an alien within the United States by any means of transportation.
It is also a crime to harbor an illegal immigrant or shield the alien from detection. Section 1324(a)(1)(A)(iii). It is also a crime under Section 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv) to encourage or induce an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States as well as conspiring or aiding or abetting in any of these crime. Section 1324(a)(1)(A)(v).
This is a direct campaign to raise money for an unlawful payment to a human trafficker.
Assistant Principal Harvey is new to Mount Pleasant High School and posted under a Twitter account declaring “I water you, you water me, we grow together.”

She should demand to see it in writing, that she is guaranteed to actually GET a fair trial!! The legal system is all rigged up, a total farce and a scam, therefore, we have NO obligation to participate in it in any way! If we DO have an obligation to let the legal system use and abuse us, then how did we incur it??
Sure thing, Stefani.
They have an immature child there as vice principal. She needs to be fired and arrested. Then she needs to grow up.
I work at that school, I hate to tell you this story is a small part of the lefty madness that exist there.
Doesn’t mayter.all that mattered is immunity. Which makes a mockery of democracy…..so long as the govt doesn’t violate constitutional rights …they can do know wrong even if the people say otherwise…by state law . It’s a sick system. Not worthy of anyone signing up to die for.
They kick you off fundraising sites if you’re raising funds for a conservative cause. But not for outright encouraging criminality, what gives?
So explain to me the bus loads and plane loads of illegals happily being transported and dumped around the country, particularly out of places such as Briggs air Force Base??
black, female, queer means there will be no consequence at all for this law breaking ignoramus in the land where all are equal and justice is meted out fairly and equally.
plugs is violating all immigration laws on a scale of millions of personnel. Why would merrick even look twice at this fine citizen?
. . . I read her bio and thought . . . oh boy, here we go . . . who cares who she/he/cis does . . . ? EXCEPT in today’s schools parents need to know who is “influencing” ( grooming ? ) their children
So she creates a GofundMe for the local MS-13 human trafficking, child prostitution, and fentanyl cartel…
Prison for all of them, please.
The cartels are more organized than any Mafia to date. The difference is that if they don’t get their trafficking money, things don’t go well for the families left behind in those Sh*thole countries. Meanwhile, they’re destroying a generation of Americans with the poison our government has made so easy for them to export.
In our highly corrupt 3rd world “justice” system she will get a pass from law enforcement. Mr. Turley pretends to not notice the absolute joke our justice system has become.
