Damion Michael Rodriguez, 24, was arrested in Laredo, Texas and charged with “smuggling of persons” among other crimes.
Rodriguez led police on a “car chase” Tuesday that ended with the accused human smuggler hitting a Ford utility truck, according to KGNS, which reported that “officers found out that Rodriguez was allegedly transporting undocumented immigrants.”
Nevertheless, Laredo’s Democrat mayor Pete Saenz argued against President Trump’s border wall in a recent NPR interview, instead pitching a “virtual wall” idea.
“So anyway, our position there in Laredo is we don’t need a physical wall. We have a natural barrier. And we expressed that to him. We consistently kept that position. I’m also the chairman of the Texas Border Coalition, which is really mayors and judges from Brownsville to El Paso, and consistently, we’ve kept that policy. You know, we could do without a physical wall. We’re very much for border security. Believe us. We need border security,” Saenz said.
“We’re proposing a virtual wall concept,” Saenz said.
Would the “virtual wall” have shut down this driver’s smuggling business?
Texas is having massive problems with illegal immigration, highlighted by ICE dropping off hundreds of migrants at an El Paso bus station because a court order dictated their release.
Democrat congresswoman Veronica Escobar recently described the “real crisis”that El Paso faced due to Sun Bowl college football teams taking up hotel rooms that have been sheltering the illegal immigrants.
Now, an arrest has been made stemming from an alleged motel room attack in El Paso:
KTSM reports: “Police arrested a Guatemalan man Tuesday for allegedly breaking into a hotel room and attempting to sexually assault a Guatemalan woman while she was holding her one-year-old child.
Police said both the victim and the offender were being housed at the Budget Inn Motel on Paisano when the alleged attack happened.
Investigators identified the suspect as Francisco Tojin Maldonado, 23, from Guatemala.
Police said the woman was bathing her infant in the hotel room Tuesday when the man walked in, groped her under her clothing and pressed himself against her.”
KTSM passage ends
Here is Veronica Escobar’s first House floor speech agitating against the Wall:
Meanwhile in Mexico…9 People Killed At a Wake in the State of Guanajuato
America must bolster its border security.
The Independent reported that gunmen killed nine people at a wake in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato on January 7, 2020.
Law enforcement officials in the city of Celaya revealed in a statement that gunmen showed up late that night and began firing on a group of people. The event was held in an impoverished neighborhood where residents mourned a young man who fell to gun fire a few days prior.
According to David Saucedo, a security analyst based in Guanajuato, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel carried out the attack against the deceased man’s family. The gunmen believed that the family was connected to the competing Santa Rosa de Lima gang, although many may not have connections with the gang.
“At that wake, a lot of innocent people died,” Saucedo observed.
Guanajuato is a flashpoint for a violent proxy war between major drug cartels. Since 2017, the Santa Rosa de Lima gang has fended off the fast-rising Jalisco cartel in a bloody turf war. Although law enforcement arrested the leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima gang back in August, the violence has not gone away According to Saucedo, the Sinaloa cartel has intervened in this struggle to keep the Jalisco cartel from securing a foothold in Guanajuato. They’ve sent weapons, financial aid, and gunmen to prop up Santa Rosa de Lima and other local gangs.
With so much drama taking place stateside, we often forget that Mexico is a failed state. Similarly, the outrage stemming from the Wuhan virus pandemic largely overshadowed issues of border security and immigration. However, this should not lessen the importance of the immigration issue.
As Mexico continues tearing itself apart, America must bolster its border security. Unfortunately, the incoming President Joe Biden is not up to task and will prioritize weak border enforcement and a potential amnesty for illegal aliens. America will suffer greatly as a result.
