‘Cartels Run Our Borders’ Say TX, AZ Leaders

Texas Representative Chip Roy has a terrifying message: “Cartels run our borders.” Speaking to the Daily Caller News Foundation, the Republican representative spoke about his recent trip to the U.S. – Mexico border. His observations were terrifying.

“The reach of the cartels – I cannot emphasize the cartels enough,” he said. Specifically, Roy learned “cartels have operational control of the border of the United States. That’s the truth for the most powerful country the world has ever known. Cartels run our borders.”

Roy stated the situation at hand “is because of the absurd policies of the Biden administration.” “And frankly, a couple of decades now of the failures by even some of what I might call my establishment Republican friends siding with the Chamber of Commerce too much when we need to be focusing on having a secure border for our nation’s benefit.”

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey demanded earlier this week that the Biden administration take action. In an interview with Fox News, Ducey says criminals are taking advantage to fuel drug and human trafficking. “These drug cartels are taking complete advantage of the miscommunication that is happening out of the Biden White House.”

Specifically, cartels and human traffickers are “celebrating by exploiting these kids and the drug cartels, the human trafficking, the sex trafficking is all part of this migrant surge.” Ducey added, “the Border Patrol and CBP need support Our county sheriffs need support” lamenting “the Biden administration has been completely divorced from the reality that is happening at the southern border.”

“It would be nice if President Biden, Vice President Harris or Secretary Mayorkas would come see us in Arizona” added Ducey.

DeSantis to Legislate Ban Working With Contractors who Help Biden’s ‘Mass Human Smuggling Operation’

Published

Ron DeSantis

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis told Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle when it comes to helping illegal immigrants do things, well, illegally, he wants the perpetrators to have consequences.

Speaking specifically about contractors who are flying illegal immigrants around the country, DeSantis said, “They’ve done over 70 flights in the last six months, dump people here. And we had – a few weeks ago – one of those people that Biden dumped, ended up committing a murder in northeast Florida.”

“Our view is, if they’re going to be dumping, we want to be able to facilitate transfer to places like Delaware, and, so, we have $8 million in my new budget to be able to do that” he added. He is also looking to pass legislation which will ban contractors who work with the Biden administration on the flights from doing business with the state of Florida.

We are going to pass legislation that says if you are facilitating Biden’s policies—which is effectively a mass human smuggling operation—you are not going to be able to do business with the state of Florida or other local governments,” DeSantis said.

Fox News reports “DeSantis’s office has previously claimed that the Biden administration has flown migrants to Jacksonville, Fla., in order to ease crowding at border facilities.”

“On average, there’s 36 passengers on each of these flights. And that has been going on over the course of the summer through September,” Florida public safety czar Larry Keefe told the Washington Examiner in November.

Earlier this year, White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed a New York Post report that the administration was flying migrants from Texas to New York. Psaki said unaccompanied minors on those flights were “en route to their final destination to be reunified with their parents or vetted sponsor” reports Fox News.

Former DEA Agent who Conspired with Colombian Cartel Sentenced to 12 Years

Jose Irizarry

Despite his attorney’s interesting defense that “when my client joined the DEA he was schooled in how to be corrupt” former agent Jose Irizarry has been sentenced. The former U.S. narcotics agent “used his badge to build a lavish lifestyle of expensive cars, parties on yachts and Tiffany jewels” reports NBC News.

Irizarry was sentenced to “more than 12 years in federal prison Thursday for conspiring to launder money with a Colombian cartel.” Irizarry admitted to his crimes, but the defense for his case was to blame his former colleagues at the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.

“When my client joined the DEA he was schooled in how to be corrupt, he was schooled in how to break the law” said his attorney Maria Dominguez in court. “In this alternate universe it became easier and less suspect to accept money and gifts” from criminal informants who worked with the narcotics agency.

In handing down her sentence Thursday, U.S. District Court Judge Charlene Honeywell addressed any failings by the DEA for its handling of corrupt agents by “the allure of easy money.” She said it also needed to be investigated.

“This has to stop…you were the one who got caught but it is apparent to this court that there are others.” NBC News reports:

Irizarry’s allegations underscore the porous oversight he received during his career, in which he was entrusted with the government’s use of front companies, shell bank accounts and couriers to combat international drug trafficking.

They also raise new questions about whether his colleagues in the Miami field office, where Irizarry’s criminal activity began, similarly abused the badge in their handling of confidential informants who every year move tens of millions of dollars in dirty money under the DEA’s supervision.

Dominguez in court filings revealed that since Irizarry’s arrest last year he has met with prosecutors for “endless hours” to provide information on the criminal activities of “fellow law-enforcement agents who initiated him in a life of crime.”

Honeywell recently sealed “sensitive” documents filed in the criminal case, saying their disclosure could potentially impede an ongoing criminal investigation, cause targets to flee and hinder cooperation from other witnesses. So far, other than Irizarry’s wife, Nathalia Gomez-Irizarry, and a Colombian customs worker, nobody else has been charged in the conspiracy.
