ZETA Mexican Drug Cartel Open For Business in Chicago (Imagine that!)
Dallas Mules Uncovered, Too
By Dell Hill via Doug Ross
Doug Ross to your “must read” list - if you haven’t already - for
stories like this...That you won’t hear much about from the LMS!
of the peerless Borderland Beat, may I present more evidence that our
beloved baritone DHS chief -- Janet Napolitano -- was correct when she
asserted that the border was "as secure as it's ever been"?
Which is to say, it's as insecure as ever, thanks to a very public campaign to promote illegal immigration by the Holder Justice Department and the Obama administration.
• Mexican Zeta Cartel Members Arrested in Chicago on Various Drug Trafficking Charges:
– Twenty defendants are facing federal narcotics charges here,
including five alleged members of a Chicago-based cell of the Zetas
Mexican drug cartel who were responsible for transporting millions of
dollars in drug proceeds between Chicago and Mexico, federal law
enforcement officials announced today...
$12.4 million cash and approximately 250 kilograms of cocaine in the Chicago area...
• Drug Cartels Operating out of Dallas:
agents say Dallas is a hub for the Mexican drug cartels... "We've
listened, through wire taps, and we know the organizations' commanding
control cell are talking to commanding control cells in Mexico -
directly to the trafficking cartel heads," says Drug Enforcement Agency
Agent James Capra.
Capra says the Gulf Cartel, La Familia, and the Sinaloa Cartel all have a presence in Dallas... The drug mules who carried loads in for the cartels are living in Dallas as well.
Moises Albino Castillo was one of those mules... "I traveled as a drug
mule three times. I brought in 15 kilos of marijuana on my back two
times," he says.
...Capra tells us drug dealers are willing to establish themselves through violence in Dallas... "We do know that in the past two years, there's been 12 different homicides
that we've actually tracked back to drug trafficking groups," he
says... It's all part of the cartels' plans to move their drugs through
the Valley to Dallas and then to the rest of America.
Now I'd like you to consider these stories with the following context, as reported little more than a week ago:
• Immigration agents ordered not to arrest illegal aliens, even those caught committing felonies:
Crane, president of the union that represents the nation’s Immigration
and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers, has provided the House Judiciary
Committee [with] internal ICE emails [that] verbally ordered officers
in the field not
to arrest illegal aliens who did not have prior criminal
convictions--even if they were fugitives evading deportation orders or
were individuals who had illegally re-entered the United States after
being deported and were thus committing a felony.
ICE headquarters leadership refuses to put directives to supervisors,
agents and officers in the field regarding law enforcement operations in
writing... Orders and directives are given orally to prevent the
activities of ICE's leadership from becoming public,” Crane, president
of the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement Council 118,
and officers in the field are frequently under orders not to arrest
persons suspected of being in the United States illegally.
And our border remains wide open with states that dare to enforce existing immigration law targeted by the Obama administration.
something very sickening about this perversion of the American legal
system. And someday, hopefully very soon, Eric Holder will be facing the
criminal charges he so richly deserves.”
