Hernandez-Salas allegedly conspired with other smugglers to facilitate the movement of large numbers of migrants into the United States from Uzbekistan, Russia, Bangladesh, Yemen, Pakistan, Eritrea, India, United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala and Mexico.

Hernandez-Salas and her co-defendant, Raul Saucedo-Juipio, 48, allegedly charged migrants tens of thousands of dollars for passage and directed them where to illegally cross into the U.S., including providing them with a ladder to climb over the border fence. In addition, Hernandez-Salas and her accomplices, armed with pistols and knives, allegedly robbed migrants of money and personal belongings.
