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.

Federal Judge Blocks Trump Policy to Keep Asylum-Seeking Migrants in Mexico

Liberal activist judges are subverting the Trump agenda.

Published

on

A federal judge has blocked the Trump administration from stopping asylum-seeking migrants in Mexico, as liberal activist judges abuse their authority to prevent Trump from remedying the national emergency at the border.

A panel in an appeals court based in San Francisco, Calif. ruled 2-1 that the policy must be halted while legal challenges are conducted.

U.S. Circuit Judge William Fletcher, who was appointed to the bench by former President and close Jeffrey Epstein associate Bill Clinton, wrote that “uncontested evidence” show that third-world migrants “risk substantial harm, even death, while they await adjudication of their applications for asylum.”

Thus far, over 57,000 migrants have been placed in Mexico as they wait for their asylum requests to be processed. Before this policy was implemented, asylum seekers would regularly skip out on their court hearings and become illegal immigrants. The Soros-funded migrant caravans were created to flood the nation, and Trump enacted this policy to defeat the scam.

The far-left American Civil Liberties Union, as usual, is celebrating this defeat for law and order.

“The court forcefully rejected the Trump administration’s assertion that it could strand asylum seekers in Mexico and subject them to grave danger,” said Judy Rabinovitz, a lawyer for the American Civil Liberties Union, in a statement. “It’s time for the administration to follow the law and stop putting asylum seekers in harm’s way.”

Fletcher was joined on the panel by Richard Paez, another appointee of former President Bill Clinton, in striking down the Trump migrant policy. The dissenting vote came from Circuit Judge Ferdinand Fernandez, who was appointed to the bench by George H.W. Bush.

Fernandez made the argument in his dissent that the migrants applying for asylum were unlikely to be approved, and a ruling by a lower court should have been struck down. Nevertheless, he was outvoted by his far-left counterparts on the panel.

The panel also upheld a 2018 order on Friday from a San Francisco judge that blocked the Trump policy to deny asylum requests for migrants who do not enter the country through designated ports of entry. These decisions risk destroying the progress the administration has made to remedy the national emergency.

While Democrats like to complain about Russian collusion undermining American democracy, it is actually the entrenched kritarchy, or rule by judicial dictate, that is undermining the will of the people. Although Trump has remade the judiciary with many rule-of-law conservative judges, the work is far from done before liberal judicial activism is put to an end.
