Another Chinese Virus Lockdown, This Time in Ohio

Published

on

On Sunday, March 22, 2020, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, Health Director Amy Acton, and Lieutenant Governor Jon Husted issued a “stay at home” order which requires all Ohioans to stay at home in order to contain the spread of the Wuhan virus. There are exceptions for essential outings, but the order also closes down non-essential businesses in accordance to the Department of Homeland Security’s definition.

DeWine believes that this is a “common sense” measure and has made exceptions in the state order which allow for people to leave their homes for groceries, carry-out meals, medical supplies, and other essentials. People are also allowed to go outside for physical exercise and are allowed to take care of family members, friends, and pets who may be in other homes and require care.

Essential business that stay open must abide by health and safety protocols, which include social distancing and regular cleaning.

DeWine stressed that these protocols will now be part of an order, “not a suggestion.” Local health departments and law enforcement can now enforce these protocols.

U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel

Published

on

Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”

U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.

Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.

According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.

The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.

In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.

This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,

That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
