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.
