Missing from the Immigration Debate: Mexican Drug Cartels operating inside the US
The high profile murders of Texas District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife Cynthia, along with the murder of Kaufman County, TX Assistant DA Mark Hasse and Colorado prison chief, Tom Clements, brings to light a disturbing chain of coincidences or not. DA Mark Hasse was deeply involved in investigating the Aryan Brotherhood (AB), a white supremacist group, which left its “white supremacist” roots to become better known for its trafficking in drugs and murder for hire.
Breitbart reports the FBI and ICE Union president, Chris Crane, have both documented that a disproportionate number of criminals and Mexican Drug Cartel members have entered/are entering the United States.
“Crane also said that “the majority of people we encounter are in possession of fraudulent documents, documents such as fake Social Security cards with real U.S. citizens’ Social Security numbers on them.”
“They have fake permanent resident cards,” Crane continued. “They are involved in identity theft, which in most cases is almost definitely a state felony and definitely a violation of U.S. immigration law. But, as the agency designated to enforce these laws – ICE – we are prohibited from enforcing them. As you can imagine, we literally stack these frauds up like baseball cards. Phony Social Security cards, phony permanent resident cards – we just stack them like baseball cards. But, as officers, we are prohibited from doing anything about it.”
Crane said this administration’s political leadership, including President Barack Obama, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and ICE director John Morton have hamstrung law enforcement agents from being able to do their jobs, and have made it impossible for ICE agents to enforce existing immigration law.” [emphasis added]
Have you noticed that nowhere in the debate, from either the Democratic or Republican side, not to mention the “gang of eight” has the issue of enforcing our interior laws been discussed. Senator Charles Schumer, that tireless advocate for both the downtrodden and the middle class, in his Meet the Press Sunday interview stated:
“So look, we’ve come to a basic agreement, which is that first, people will be legalized. In other words, not citizens, but they’ll be allowed to work, come out of the shadows, travel. Then, we will make sure the border is secure.”
That’s great, Chuck. Just great.
Meanwhile, let’s continue the oh-so-important national discussion about “illegal” vs. “undocumented” and celebrate the newly reached agreement between the US Chamber of Commerce and the AFL-CIO on allowing 200,000 annual work visas into the US, one of the so-called last barriers to immigration reform. And let’s ensure that we continue to push the gun control debate, whose ultimate goal is not universal background checks, assault weapons ban, but universal gun confiscation from law abiding citizens.
Do you think Mexican Drug Cartel members vote?
