As the Biden Administration ditched former President Donald Trump’s border wall construction, reversed migrant control agreements with Central America and Mexico, and pulled back on enforcement policies, there has been a growing crisis along the US-Mexico border. But human traffickers aren’t the only ones profiting from Biden’s open-border actions. As pointed out by FBI Director Christopher Wray, there has been an increasing amount of activity by the Mexican Cartel too.
Rep. Tom McClintock asked Director Wray at a House Judiciary Committee hearing whether he has seen or heard of instances where migrants crossing the border were “deeply indebted” to cartels and smugglers. He asked if their debts were collected through “indentured servitude to the cartels?” Wray replied that there was “no question” regarding cartel activity uprise in the past few months and that they have ended up infiltrating the migrant camps where asylum seekers are awaiting court dates.
“There’s no question that the cartel activity on the other side of the border is spilling over in all sorts of ways and you just put your finger on one that is extremely concerning,” Wray said.
Immigration activist Felicia Rangel-Samponaro pointed out that the Biden Administration is also adding to the problem. She said that smugglers at the border were convincing migrants with misinformation that Joe Biden was going to further ease border restrictions.
Last month, the Department of Homeland Security also recorded the most illegal aliens that have been apprehended in any month ever recorded. The department was founded in 2002. “In May 2021, CBP encountered 180,034 persons attempting entry along the Southwest Border. Single adults continue to make up the majority of these encounters,” CBP said in a statement.
There has also been a growing surge of deadly fentanyl at the border, which have farmers and ranchers in the areas extremely angry. Despite the fact that VP Harris is ‘Border Czar’ and hasn’t visited the border herself, even Democrats have been begging the Biden Administration to reimplement old policies. Politicians are all calling the Biden Administration “tone-deaf” and “non-responsive” to the deadly situation.
Law enforcement officials said that human smuggling is “much more lucrative” for cartels than drug smuggling and that they are getting $4000-$8000 per body. Pinal County Sergeant Brian Messing said they don’t look at it as human life, they look at it as a commodity. “They’ll switch back and forth between dope and humans based on price. The commodity is what they’re looking at,” he said.
But the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department just documented their biggest drug bust yet, and the Mexican cartel officials are to blame. They tracked down 70-80 outhouses filled with illegal marijuana plots, worth approximately $50 million worth of product. The area was revealed to be a “hot spot” for criminal behavior and reports of cartel members threatening residents.
The cartel is getting so comfortable in the country that they have the nerve to threaten our own law-abiding citizens. The damage to the border is almost unbelievable and the Cartel has been arriving in great numbers, thanks to Joe Biden and ‘border czar’ Kamala Harris. Another one of the Biden Administrations’ “unity” projects gone wrong.
