From the Daily News:
A Manhattan immigration lawyer was arrested Tuesday on charges of helping smuggle more than 450 illegal immigrants into the country.
Hak Tung Lam, 44, of Flushing, Queens, was charged with recommending where to bring the illegal immigrants - who were Chinese - to avoid detection, and filing false documents, according to documents filed in Manhattan Federal Court.
"Zealous representation of his clients - a group of international alien smugglers - allegedly meant assisting them in breaking the law," U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said.
A spreadsheet immigration officials obtained last month showed that Hak, who allegedly received $2,000 per immigrant, had helped 468 illegal immigrants.
Also arrested were his brother, Wen Wo Lam, 43, of Staten Island, and Ying Yang, 30, of Flushing, a receptionist at Hak's Bowery office.
