“I need drivers based in Texas. Only serious enquiries. Good pay: $10-20K USD in 3 hours. Houston, TX, Dallas, TX, San Marcos, TX, San Marcos, San Antonio, Austin, TX, Waco, TX, Temple, TX. Follow me and DM me if interested and if you have a car or truck. We will pay more if you have a trailer.”
The above is the type of messages and ads Mexican Cartels and human smugglers are posting on social media platforms such as TikTok to find help with their illegal activities. The new reporting comes from the Post Millennial, which found specific illegal migrant smugglers in Kinney County, Texas are using the platforms.
According to the Post Millennial, a border official showed an ad on TikTok, advertising smuggling jobs for the cartel, with a label that read: “Participating in this activity could result in you or others getting hurt.”
During the smuggling process, the cartel member in charge of the operation watches the live location of the smuggler and regularly checks in with them via WhatsApp, observing their drop location pin at a time, to circumvent the police receiving information from smugglers that are caught and arrested.
Foreign Desk News reports:
Border officials note that smugglers can post recruitment videos to employ American citizens to help in human smuggling on behalf of cartels. TikTok allows cartel recruiters to stay on the platform and organize human smuggling operations instead of taking them off the platform.
In counties like Kinney, police officials have prosecuted nearly 6,000 people for criminal trespass and 1,800 for human smuggling. Officials say allowing cartel recruiters to run rampant on social media platforms is extremely dangerous and irresponsible for Americans, illegal immigrants, and smugglers.

NYC Mayor Adams’ budget cuts slash total number of police and education funds
“No city should be left to handle a national humanitarian crisis largely on its own, and without the significant and timely support we need from Washington, D.C., today’s budget will only be the beginning,” said New York City Democratic Mayor Eric Adams about his decision to make budget cuts as a result of the overwhelming migrant crisis.
However, those who will suffer from budget cuts to the city’s services to offset the cost of dealing with the ever-increasing number of migrants are those that are in place to make the city better.
“The cuts will see police freeze hiring and bring the total number of police officers below 30,000. It would further slash the education budget by $1 billion over two years and affect a litany of other agencies” reports Just The News.
Albeit, Adams admitted: “In all my time in government, this is probably one of the most painful exercises I’ve gone through.” More than 110,000 migrants have arrived in New York City over the past year, including roughly 13,000 sent from Texas by GOP Governor Greg Abbott as part of his ongoing bussing plan to send new arrivals to the U.S. to sanctuary cities.
However, similar to other leaders of sanctuary cities, Adams is unwilling to put his money where his mouth is. In September, Adams warned that the crisis would “destroy New York City” and begged the federal government to pay for his mess.
“I’m gonna tell you something, New Yorkers, never in my life have I had a problem that I didn’t see an ending to. I don’t see an ending to this,” Adams said at the time. “The federal government needs to do its job. We need the federal government, the Congress members, the Senate and the president to do their job: close the borders,” said Adams’ advisor Ingrid Lewis Martin insisted in early October. “And until you close the borders, you need to come on with a full-on decompression strategy where you can take all of our migrants and move them through our 50 states.”
