A 28-year old man who has been charged with three counts of intoxication manslaughter in the highways deaths of three retired police officers who were driving motorcycles appears to be in the country illegally.
Ivan Robles Navejas, who is currently detained in the Kerr County, Texas jail on the manslaughter charges, has been issued an immigration hold by the Department of Homeland Security, suggesting that his presence in the country is unlawful.
Najevas had been arrested for a highway crash in which three members of a motorcycle club for retired police officers were killed. Joseph Paglia, Jerry Wayne Harbor, and Michael White were killed after the collision on Texas’ Medina Highway, in which Najevas is alleged to have crossed over to the wrong side of the highway and crashed into the motorcyclists.
David Weed, a spokesman for the Thin Blue Line, explained the tragic event in a Facebook post.
“It is with great sadness we announce the deaths of three of our members this afternoon, Saturday, July 18, 2020. Thin Blue Line Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club was in Bandera, Texas for the weekend conducting our annual Thin Blue Line Foundation meeting, which was to have taken place Saturday afternoon. Several of our members had gone on a leisurely motorcycle ride to have lunch in Kerrville this morning before the meeting. They were heading back to Bandera when a car traveling from Medina toward Kerrville crossed over the center line and struck several of the motorcycles head on. Three of our members were killed in this tragic accident.”
The Texas Department of Public Safety is alleging that Najevas hit a total of nine members of the motorcycle club. He’s currently being detained on a $500,000 bond at the Kerr County Jail, but the immigration hold issued by DHS all but ensures he won’t be released.
Najevas has been charged with DUI offenses before, but it’s unclear if he was convicted. If so, the tragedy at hand could’ve been easily avoided through deporting Najevas to his country of origin.
Former Mexican Defense Minister is Arrested in Los Angeles for Allegedly Protecting a Drug Cartel
More Proof that Mexico is An Institutional Dumpster Fire
Retired Mexican General Salvador Cienfuegos was arrested on October 15, 2020.
According to allegations from U.S. prosecutors, General Cienfuegos received bribes from a powerful Mexican cartel and allowed to smuggle drugs into the United States.
An indictment that was unsealed on October 17, revealed that from December 2015 to February 2017, while he served as Mexico’s Secretary of National Defense, Cienfuegos allegedly worked on behalf of a drug cartel. In working with this drug cartel, Cienfuegos earned the nickname of “El Padrino” (The Godfather) by helping the H-2 Cartel move drugs from Mexico to the U.S.
“The defendant [Cienfuegos] abused that public position to help the H-2 Cartel, an extremely violent Mexican drug trafficking organization, traffic thousands of kilograms of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana into the United States,” prosecutors contended in a letter sent to a U.S. District Court judge in New York.
“In exchange for bribe payments,” the letter argued, he allowed the cartel “to operate with impunity in Mexico” while it operated distribution networks in cities such as Los Angeles and Las Vegas and in other states such as Ohio, Minnesota, North Carolina and New York.
U.S. agents took the retired general into custody on October 15 at Los Angeles International Airport. Cienfuegos is expected to be transferred to New York.
Cienfuegos served as defense secretary from 2012 to 2018 under the administration of then-President Enrique Peña Nieto.
“The main problem in Mexico is corruption,” López Obrador declared during a news briefing on October 16 regarding the incident.
In López Obrador’s view, it is “regrettable” that someone in such a high position of government has deep connections to drug cartels.
“This is a process of progressive degradation,” López Obrador continued, “and we are trying now to figure out how deep the corruption goes.”
As of now, Cienfuegos is the most prominent Mexican official to have been arrested on drug trafficking charges. In 2019, U.S. authorities arrested Genaro García Luna, the Secretary of Public Security under the administration of former President Felipe Calderón, for allegedly being involved in drug trafficking.
According to the U.S. indictment, Cienfuegos was working with H-2, an alleged branch of the Beltrán-Leyva criminal cartel. On top of that, prosecutors claims that the retired general received bribes to shield the cartel and its leaders. He then proceeded to inform them beforehand of military actions planned against them and even used troops to attack a rival cartel.
Mexico is clearly on the ropes institutionally. With a current president (AMLO) who wants to take a “hugs not bullets” approach to crime, the country will continue to spiral into chaos as drug cartels become even more powerful. President Trump has been right all along in building a wall to protect America from the potential spillover effects of Mexico’s drug war.
