This is what happens when the USA is not serious about securing the Mexican border. For 30 years they pretend they are going to secure it….and then don’t. The government comes up with bullsh*t ideas like a “virtual fence” with sensors and cameras that does NOTHING to stop the problem. They spend lots of money but never actually stop people from coming into the country illegally.
Mexican drug cartels whose operatives once rarely ventured beyond the U.S. border are dispatching some of their most trusted agents to live and work deep inside the United States - an emboldened presence that experts believe is meant to tighten their grip on the world's most lucrative narcotics market and maximize profits.
If left unchecked, authorities say, the cartels' move into the American interior could render the syndicates harder than ever to dislodge and pave the way for them to expand into other criminal enterprises such as prostitution, kidnapping-and-extortion rackets and money laundering.
"It's probably the most serious threat the United States has faced from organized crime," said Jack Riley, head of the Drug Enforcement Administration's Chicago office.
The cartel threat looms so large that one of Mexico's most notorious drug kingpins - a man who has never set foot in Chicago - was recently named the city's Public Enemy No. 1, the same notorious label once assigned to Al Capone.
Typically, cartel operatives are not U.S. citizens and make no attempt to acquire visas, choosing instead to sneak across the border. They are so accustomed to slipping back and forth between the two countries that they regularly return home for family weddings and holidays
Now they are working on Amnesty. They tried Amnesty in 1986 and it didn’t work. They tried NAFTA in 1994 it didn’t work either. Know what works….A real fence.
This is what it looks like when you are serious about building a fence to keep people out. This is what the USA needs to do to stop all the nonsense.
