Illegal Alien Arrested with Enough Fentanyl to Kill One Million Pleads Guilty to Charges

Many argue that closing the border would slow the flow of drugs into the United States.

According to a press release from the Department of Justice, an illegal alien arrested in November with one kilo of fentanyl – enough to kill one million people – and nine kilos of heroin, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute one kilogram or more of heroin.

The press release named Pablo Vega-Ontanon, a Mexican national living in Georgia, as the guilty party.

“On November 6, 2018, Vega-Ontanon and two co-defendants arrived in Gulfport to sell heroin to a confidential informant,” the release said. “They claimed to have ten kilograms of heroin hidden in a compartment of their vehicle. All three were arrested shortly thereafter. The substance was eventually tested and found to contain nine kilograms of heroin and one kilogram of fentanyl.”

Vega-Ontanon will be sentenced in September and faces a life imprisonment and a $10,000,000 fine. Anothor of the co-conspirators pleaded guilty in March and will be sentenced in July, while the third awaits trial.

The massive drug bust comes amid a period of gridlock in Washington, D.C. on border security. Many believe that closing the U.S. southern border with Mexico will help reduce the flow of illicit narcotics into the America.

Big League Politics reported:

President Donald J. Trump has declared a national state of emergency, for which several heavily-blue states immediately sued his administration. Democrats refuse to budge on the issue, unwilling to secure America’s borders. As illegal border crossings surge, they blocked a meaningful amount of wall funding in the 2019 federal budget.

In what many conservatives see as a colossal failure, the Republican Congress, led by former Speaker Paul Ryan, current Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, failed to deliver wall funding to the president’s desk during all of 2017 and 2018, when Republicans held the House, the Senate, and the White House.

Illegal Immigrant Arrested in Fatal Virginia Hit-and-Run

Pichinte Echeverria entered the country illegally.

Published

on

An illegal immigrant has been arrested for his alleged involvement in a Virginia hit-and-run incident that caused the death of a 62-year old man.

Pichinte Echeverria was arrested at his workplace on Monday, two weeks after the May 6 death of Alberto Anthony Marino. Marino had been struck in a roadway earlier by a vehicle, and was struck again when laying in the roadway by the driver of a Nissan Xterra, fatally. The drivers of both vehicles fled the scene after striking the Virginia man.

Authorities are describing Walner Alberto Pichinte Echeverria, 35, of 6502 Monarch Road in Frederick, Md, as the driver of the Xterra. A source informed Potomac Local News that Echeverria had entered the country illegally at some point on Wednesday.

Law enforcement were able to identify Echeverria as the driver of the Xterra using surveillance footage obtained from a nearby gas station.

Local police are still looking for the driver of the first vehicle to strike Marino, which they say was a Toyota Corolla.

Echeverria is being charged with felony hit and run for his involvement in the incident. In any event, it appears likely that Marino’s death could’ve been avoided if not for Echeverria’s alleged reckless carelessness and illegal presence in the United States. Should he be convicted of the felony hit and run charges, he’ll likely serve a sentence in federal prison before being subject to deportation proceedings.
