FAILED STATE: El Chapo’s Son Flees Arrest After a Shootout with Mexican Security Forces

Published

on

On October 17, 2019, Mexican security forces were caught up in a deadly firefight in Culiacan, Mexico with gunmen of the Sinaloa cartel.

This was part of a mission to apprehend the son of the infamous Sinaloa cartel drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán.

A federal judge in Washington D.C. issued an arrest warrant for Ovidio Guzmán López, who was federally charged with drug trafficking in 2017.

This exchange turned deadly, with 8 people being killed and 21 wounded. On top of that, Guzmán López was able to flee the scene.

José Luis González Meza, the legal counsel for El Chapo’s family, claimed that “Ovidio is alive and free” but he provided no more details about what transpired during this incident.

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) defended his security forces’ decision to let Guzmán López free.

“The capture of one criminal cannot be worth more than the lives of people,” the Mexican president proclaimed, describing the operation’s response “very violent” and alluded to the risk that this operation posed to bystanders. “This decision was made to protect citizens. … You cannot fight fire with fire,” AMLO continued. “We do not want deaths. We do not want war.”

This is another lurid demonstration that Mexico has reached failed state status.

For that reason, immigration reform and border security remain some of the most important issues among GOP voters.

Having a porous border with a failed state like Mexico is not in America’s best interest.

Tennessee’s Marsha Blackburn Calls on Ilhan Omar to Resign After Minnesota Democrat Calls to “Dismantle” U.S. “System of Oppression”

Omar appeared to refer to the American economy and political system as “oppression.”

Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn called upon Minnesota Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar to resign from office on Tuesday, hours after Omar had appeared to endorse the “dismantling” of the American “economy and political systems,” calling them a “system of oppression.”

As long as our economy and our political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shutout, we will perpetuate this inequality. We cannot stop at the criminal justice system. We must begin the work to dismantle the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.

Omar had made the remarks in the context of arguing that Democratic “criminal justice reform” was insufficient to answer the demands of the Black Lives Matter movement, calling for a more dramatic and wide-ranging restructuring of American society.

Blackburn called on the Minnesota freshman Democrat to resign hours after the anti-American speech in a tweet, stating that Omar could no longer credibly follow her oath to preserve the Constitution after referring to the American system broadly as a “system of oppression.”

Omar’s grandfather Abukar Omar had served as a government official in the dictatorship of Siad Barre in Somalia, and the Omar family sought political refuge in the United States when the Barre dictatorship-known for its human rights abuses and a mass killing of minorities thought of by some as a genocide- was overthrown in a civil war.
