Texas taking further action to combat Biden’s border crisis

Published

on

Border states have been forced to step up and protect our nation’s borders against Biden’s failures to enforce our immigration laws. Texas Governor Gregg Abbott has had to grant the authority for state police, troopers and the national guard to escort any migrants they encounter to the southern border.

As a result, the Biden administration is attempting to punish Abbott for fixing the crisis by having the Department of Justice is investigating “Operation Lonestar” for potential civil rights violations.

Sara Carter has spent a tremendous amount of time reporting from the border and explains to ‘Hannity’ guest host and former congressman Jason Chaffetz, that the situation “is a tragedy all around.” It’s “a tragedy for Americans, it’s a humanitarian crisis at the border for those that are being trafficked, it is a tragedy for our country and for those being moved into this country.”

For example, Carter explains, by mid-June this year alone, we have had more than 1.5 million encounters, so it’s likely up to 1.6 million currently and will reach 2 million for this fiscal year. Dangerously, there are “over 800,000 gotaways.”

“Those are people who came into our country that we will never even know who they are or why they are here.” Additionally, at least 50 known terrorists have been apprehended, while others could have just disappeared “into the fabric of our nation” and “we’ll just have to wait and see if there’s an attack.”

The Justice Department (DOJ) announced a huge connection between Chinese organized crime and the Sinaloa drug cartel. In a press release the DOJ reported a 10-count superseding indictment charging Los Angeles-based associates of Mexico’s Sinaloa drug cartel with conspiring with money-laundering groups linked to Chinese underground banking to launder drug trafficking proceeds. During the conspiracy, more than $50 million in drug proceeds flowed between the Sinaloa Cartel associates and Chinese underground money exchanges.”

The indictment was the result of a multi-year investigation into the conspiracy—dubbed “Operation Fortune Runner”— unsealed on Monday charging a total of 24 defendants with one count of conspiracy to aid and abet the distribution of cocaine and methamphetamine, one count of conspiracy to launder monetary instruments, and one count of conspiracy to operate an unlicensed money transmitting business, according to the press release.

“Dangerous drugs like fentanyl and methamphetamine are destroying people’s lives but drug traffickers only care about their profits,” said United States Attorney Martin Estrada. “To protect our community, therefore, it is essential that we go after the sophisticated, international criminal syndicates that launder the drug money. As this indictment and our international actions show, we will be dogged in our pursuit of all those who facilitate destruction in our country and make sure they are held accountable for their actions.”

“Drug traffickers generate immense amounts of cash through their illicit operations. This case is a prime example of Chinese money launderers working hand in hand with drug traffickers to try to legitimize profits generated by drug activities,” said Chief Guy Ficco of IRS Criminal Investigation. “We have made it a priority to identify, disrupt, and dismantle any money launderers working with drug cartels and we are committed to our partnerships with federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to combat drug cartels and those who assist them in laundering drug proceeds.”

The Justice.Gov website explains of the indictment: “Following close coordination with the Justice Department, Chinese and Mexican law enforcement informed United States authorities that those countries recently arrested fugitives named in the superseding indictment who fled the United States after they were initially charged last year.”
