Migrants

I was eating lunch at the High Desert Market. At the neighboring table, a women was  reporting about a trip that she had made to the border. There she had contacted migrants who were about to try to get across the border. Surrounding the migrants were some Mexican soldiers, and a couple of cartel members, who were dressed identical to the soldiers. The soldiers and the cartel members were all carrying AK-47s. Was she following her conscience, or was she a coyote*?
