The Daily Caller unearthed an email sent from Drug Enforcement Agency headquarters directing the department to stop using the term “Mexican cartels.” A government official who received the email mid-July leaked it to the news organization.
“Also, we need to now avoid saying ‘Mexican cartel’ or discussing the Mexican government or LE (Law Enforcement) cooperation with Mexico,” the email read. Instead, they’d like to emphasis the international participation in the cartels, rather than blaming the crime organization solely on Mexico. “Please continue using ‘drug cartel,’ TCO (Transnational Criminal Organizations), DTO (Drug Trafficking Organizations), etc.”
Attorney General Merrick Garland swore in DEA Administrator Anne Milgram in June. This email is the latest effort in the DEA’s public relations image. As a result, very few current DEA officials are able to speak on the epidemic on national news because of their new policy. Now, all TV interviews must go through the Department of Justice. Most interviewees never get approval.
Meanwhile, officials at the border have found more fentanyl than ever before. Former head of the DEA’s Special Operations Derek Maltz told Sara Carter on a recent episode of her show that the drug just recently gained popularity. According to him, fentanyl is mostly snuck in as counterfeit drugs. “In 2015, the Phoenix DEA office seized zero, Mexico oxy counterfeit pills. In 2020, there was 6 million,” Maltz said. “That’s one DEA office in one part of the country. The DEA lab, Sara, did a recent analysis. One in every four pills had a lethal dose. 26% of the pills they analyzed were lethal.”
The DEA did not respond to the Daily Caller’s requests for comment. Read the full article here.

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’
At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.
Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”
Speaking on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”
“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”
“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
