Texas Congressman Henry Cuellar, one of the last Blue Dog Democrats left in Congress, was able to defeat progressive darling Jessica Cisneros, a 26-year-old immigration lawyer propped up by the Justice Democrats, on Super Tuesday.
However, the race was close.
The Dallas Morning News reported that the eight-term incumbent only defeated Cisneros by a 52-48 margin.
Cisneros positioned herself as a progressive and called out Cuellar for his moderate stances. She also received glowing endorsements from Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Cuellar, who is supported by both House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Koch family, defended himself against Cisneros’ attacks. Cuellar criticized her for being out of touch with the district’s centrist tendencies
Even in defeat, Cisneros held her head high. On Wednesday, she declared that “this is just the beginning.”
“The first thing we had to defeat was the culture of fear — and our movement was victorious in proving we’re within striking distance of bringing fundamental change to South Texas,” she declared.
Texas’ changing demographics may prove to be beneficial for Cisneros in the long-term.
The 2020 will be the most important decade for immigration reform.
If Republicans don’t get their act together and embrace comprehensive immigration reduction, they will have rendered themselves politically irrelevant.
Even worse, the Historic American Nation will cease to exist.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
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.
