Pepe Aguilar broke the silence after the arrest of his son José Emiliano, who was caught on March 14 on the border between Tijuana and San Ysidro, California, for allegedly trying to enter four people of Chinese nationality illegally in U.S. territory .

In a video of almost five minutes, the interpreter of "Miedo" stated that his son is not a criminal and will have the unconditional support of his family.

"I believe in my son, he is not a criminal and I am sure that he will prove it in his trial. I believe in a society that must be governed by laws and that it must have consequences if one is missing them. So painful, so sad but it is what it is and so is life," Pepe Aguilar expressed. 

The clip that was shared in social networks comes a day after it became known that Emiliano was transporting Asian citizens in the trunk of his vehicle. The young man was released on bail, but the trial will continue in a U.S. court.

"We are all united with my brother, who is very worried, devastated by what is happening to his son, he is trying to see what can be done legally. Pepe has always cared for what his children see on the internet, he has tried to educate them in a good way. Hell, this is a very bad step. The problem is that my brother is traveling, he was caught by surprise this news, "said Aguilar's sister Dalia Ines to Diario Basta.

The regional music singer trusts that God will put things in their place. "We have a lot of worry, I do not know exactly what happened, I do not know if Emiliano knew that those people were inside the trunk... logically at the moment the whole family is united trying to find out what happened. I know Emiliano is a good young man, he is of good habits, I have never known bad steps, I do not know what happened to him, why he did that. I pray to God that this will be resolved soon and in the best way because nothing of this has ever happened in the family. We have only to wait and entrust ourselves to God," Aguilar concluded.

The lawyer representing Mr. Aguilar, Jeremy Warren, said the case had nothing to do with the famous singer. "Jose Aguilar is a young man who will address this matter in court, not with the press," he said.

The singer's son was given a $15,000 bail and, among the conditions, is not traveling to Mexico, official documents detail. The 24-year-old will be out of prison for the time being, but will have to appear before a federal judge in California, USA, on April 13 at 1:30 p.m.
