Although Iowa is generally not seen as diverse to Democrats, one city, West Liberty, stands out.
The school district in this city is one of the few with a majority minority population. According to the Iowa Department of Education, 55 percent of public school students were Hispanic.
For two residents of West Liberty, Sylvia Gutierrez and her boyfriend, Kevin Fernandez, immigration is a major issue, among others, that got them to support Sanders.
“I like his health care plan and his immigration plan,” Fernandez, expressing his discontent with how migrant families at the Mexico border have been treated. “We’re a big country, we should be able to help people out.”
142 people were in attendance at the caucus precinct in the West Liberty Community Center, where Sanders was able to pick up five delegates.
According to The Gazette, “Sanders had the clear bulk of support from the Latino community in the room, many of them caucusing for the first time.”
California Assembly member Ash Kalra sang praise about Sanders’ strong Hispanic support in Iowa.
He tweeted, “In a mostly Latino caucus site with 185 voters, “@berniesanders wins 94% of the vote! Here’s the Sanders precinct captain going through the process of selecting the 9 delegates for the campaign they have earned with the big win. ¡Sí se puede! #NotMeUs #UnidosConBernie”
Based on multiple decades of voting trends, it is no surprise why Hispanics are gravitating toward Sanders, the most economically progressive of all candidates.
Many of the post-1965 Immigration Act migrants hail from countries with notorious levels of corruption and are largely acclimated to despotism and government overreach. A candidate like Sanders fits their voter profile almost perfectly.
For that reason, Trump must put severe forms of immigration restriction in place in order to prevent the U.S. from importing a new electorate that could radically transform American institutions.
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.
