Mary Ann Mendoza, mother of a fatal victim of illegal immigration, expressed optimism for the border Wall effort after her presence Friday in President Donald Trump’s veto ceremony for Congress’ bill to block the Wall.
Mendoza’s son Brandon Mendoza, a Mesa, Arizona police officer, died in 2014 after an intoxicated illegal immigrant crashed head on into his police car. Mendoza is now an activist and advisory board member of www.WeBuildTheWall.us, which is backed by Steve Bannon and others and seeks to build as much wall as possible on private land on the border. Kris Kobach, who is rumored to be a candidate for Department of Homeland Security chief, also advises the group.
“It went incredible, we were all welcomed in there with the sheriffs and White House staff and whatnot, and we couldn’t have been more proud to be part of this occasion,” Mendoza told Big League Politics after exiting the Oval Office, where President Trump made his first-ever veto.
“It was a concerted effort, the president was there, the Vice President, the Kellyanne Conway, Mercedes Schlapp,” Mendoza said.
Mendoza is not too happy with Congress.
“This is why President Trump had to veto their decision because it was not in the best interest of the American people,” Mendoza said.
But there’s no way Congress can get a 2/3 majority to override President Trump’s veto, right?
“We believe that it will be smooth sailing from here,” Mendoza said.
“If our politicians would actually look into the standing national emergencies still in place, and nobody put up a fuss about those, but they put up a fuss about the security of the United States?”
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.
