An eight-time illegal alien living in Utah was arrested after being caught with more than $850,000 worth of drugs over the weekend.

“On January 12, detectives with the Utah County Special Enforcement Team and deputies with the Utah County Sheriff’s Office attempted to stop a car for traffic violations,” reported KUTV. “Jose Olegario Lopez, 44, did not stop the car until law enforcement surrounded him.”

Lopez, who was driving with his 16-year-old son, was found with a small amount of cocaine upon an initial search. Using a K9, police officers then found a sealed box containing several individual packages filled with cocaine. The 2.35 pounds of cocaine were valued at $106,000.

Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) confirmed that Lopez is an illegal alien, and that he has eight aggravated reentry violations, which is the crime of reentering after being deported. That crime is a felony with a maximum sentence of 20 years.

It is inexplicable that someone can commit such a heigh level crime eight times and still roam the streets freely. Of course, it is also inexplicable that the United States does not have a method of keeping illegal aliens from entering the country eight times in the first place, namely a border wall.

“Lopez was booked into jail on two first-degree felony charges of possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute; a child endangerment charge; for failing to respond to the command of a peace officer; and a class A misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia, according to a press release,” the report said.

ICE has placed detainer on him, meaning that when he is released from prison, he will be deported, likely to return to America again.

Biden DHS Secretary to Illegal Immigrants: “We’re Not Saying ‘Don’t Come,’ We’re Saying ‘Don’t Come Now'”

Did he just endorse illegal immigration?

Published

Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, appeared at Monday’s White House press briefing to give an overview of what he and the DHS are doing to “replace the cruelty” of the Trump administration’s immigration processes and to take questions from reporters.

In response to a reporter’s question about how he was going to rebuild the DHS and reunite families, Mayorkas began by saying that they are “progressing every single day” on building a system to accept “asylum seekers”—read: illegal immigrants—through ports of entry.

We are progressing every single day. I don’t have a particular timeline, but all I can do is communicate, both to the American public and to the individuals seeking protection, that we are working around the clock seven days a week to make that timeframe as short as possible, but they need to wait. But they need to wait with a particular goal in mind. We are not saying ‘don’t come,’ we are saying ‘don’t come now,’ because we will be able to deliver a safe and orderly process to them as quickly as possible. There have been, I understand, approximately 105 families reunited in the recent past. That is through the extraordinary efforts of counsel and others in the community. We are joining with counsel, with members of the community to work on this.”

Another reporter asked Mayorkas if he thought there was a crisis at the border, to which he replied: “I think that the answer is no. I think there is a challenge at the border that we are managing, and we have our resources dedicated to managing it.” Despite the reporter’s pushback on his claim, Mayorkas reiterated that his team was working “around the clock” to address the issues confronting the DHS and that the level of illegal immigrants coming across the border constitutes a challenge, not a crisis.

Big League Politics has covered Mayorkas closely since his nomination to DHS secretary by Joe Biden. He previously said he would stop construction of the border wall and that he was unsure what he’d do with the amount of wall already built.
