Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán Loera, one of the most storied drug kingpins in history, was convicted on 10 federal charges Tuesday, including “engaging in a continuing criminal enterprise, conspiracy to launder narcotics proceeds, international distribution of cocaine, heroin, marijuana and other drugs, and use of firearms.”
The criminal amassed a fortune of $14 billion during his decades running the brutal Sinaloa Cartels, which is responsible for unspeakable brutality. Now, the federal government seeks a forfeiture judgment of that cash, and just in the nick of time.
It is three times the amount requested by President Donald J. Trump to build a wall at the southern border, which would put a huge dent in the activities promulgated by those like El Chapo. Using his cash for a border wall would be apropos, and it wouldn’t cost the taxpayer a dime.
U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas.) proposed in January that El Chapo’s fortune be used to build the wall.
“Ensuring the safety and security of Texans is one of my top priorities,” Cruz said while introducing the Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order Act (ELCHAPO). “We must also be mindful of the impact on the federal budget. By leveraging any criminally forfeited assets of El Chapo and his ilk, we can offset the wall’s cost and make meaningful progress toward achieving President Trump’s stated border security objectives.”
With Democrats in Congress dead set on deny Trump the wall, and Trump himself balking at the idea of declaring a national emergency to build the wall, Cruz’s plan might actually be the best option available. It completely levels the Democrats’ argument that a wall is fiscally irresponsible (not that Democrats actually care about fiscal responsibility) leaving them only with the “immorality” argument, which is flimsy at best.
Not to mention it forces them to choose between siding with a notorious drug lord and the security of United States.
El Chapo faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison. He will appeal his conviction, but will likely never see the light of day again. He has no use for the money. We might as well do something positive with it.

Mexican Government Reported that Nearly 80,000 People are Still Missing
Mexico Spirals Out of Control While Joe Biden Promises Mass Amnesty
According to a report released by the Mexican government on November 25, 2020, over 79,500 people are still missing in Mexico.
This comes in the backdrop of Mexico’s infamous military offensive against drug cartels in 2006. Since the erstwhile president Felipe’s military offensive against drug cartels, the number of missing people in Mexico has skyrocketed.
Before 2006, there were 1,500 disappearances in Mexico, per statistics that Deputy Human Rights Minister Alejandro Encina put forward. Since July, there have been roughly 6,300 new cases reported.
Encina observed, however, that the number of disappearances have dropped since 2019.
Mexico is notorious for its alarming levels of violence, which is largely perpetuated by organized crime. In 2019, 34,582 people were murdered. So far in 2020, 26,431 people have been murdered from January to September.
Encinas claimed that Mexican authorities have discovered 1,399 mass graves in Mexico over the past two years. Of the 2,290 bodies discovered in the graves, 879 have been identified.
Mexico is not in good shape and that’s putting it lightly. America at least recognized this with Donald Trump in office. Trump was elected on an America First platform which stressed tough policies on the border and was not willing tolerate mass immigration like his predecessors.
Sadly, the apparent president-Joe Biden is more concerned with trying to pass mass amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens and freezing deportations for 100 days.
Securing our Southern border is a recognition of the cold, hard truth that Mexico is falling apart, and it’s institutional and social rot could potentially make its way up north. Much to America’s chagrin, the next occupant of the White House will likely not recognize that. Should fraud allegations fail to invalidate the current results of the 2020 elections, America First patriots must act accordingly and make immigration a massive issue during the 2022 midterms, both in the primaries and general election.
