After an illegal alien was pulled over in Tye, Texas last week, police found some cargo that was unusual, to say the least.
“The driver of the vehicle, Efren Morales, 35, of Las Cruces, New Mexico, was charged with manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance, with a $35,000 bond listed for the charge, but is also being held by the United States Border Patrol for an immigration violation,” according to KTXS.
Morales was muling 40 grams of meth in addition to five illegal aliens who were hiding under blankets in the bed of his pickup truck. A woman and child were sitting in the cab of the truck with Morales.
“The vehicle’s passenger, Silvia Mireya Cabeza de Baca, 36, of Las Cruces, New Mexico, received the same charge, bond and hold as Morales,” the report said.
All five illegal passengers in the bed of the truck were placed in the custody of United States Border Patrol. One, the only female among the passengers discovered in the bed, had to be treated for injuries sustained during the trip across the border. The report did not detail the injuries.

Meanwhile in Mexico…9 People Killed At a Wake in the State of Guanajuato
America must bolster its border security.
The Independent reported that gunmen killed nine people at a wake in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato on January 7, 2020.
Law enforcement officials in the city of Celaya revealed in a statement that gunmen showed up late that night and began firing on a group of people. The event was held in an impoverished neighborhood where residents mourned a young man who fell to gun fire a few days prior.
According to David Saucedo, a security analyst based in Guanajuato, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel carried out the attack against the deceased man’s family. The gunmen believed that the family was connected to the competing Santa Rosa de Lima gang, although many may not have connections with the gang.
“At that wake, a lot of innocent people died,” Saucedo observed.
Guanajuato is a flashpoint for a violent proxy war between major drug cartels. Since 2017, the Santa Rosa de Lima gang has fended off the fast-rising Jalisco cartel in a bloody turf war. Although law enforcement arrested the leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima gang back in August, the violence has not gone away According to Saucedo, the Sinaloa cartel has intervened in this struggle to keep the Jalisco cartel from securing a foothold in Guanajuato. They’ve sent weapons, financial aid, and gunmen to prop up Santa Rosa de Lima and other local gangs.
With so much drama taking place stateside, we often forget that Mexico is a failed state. Similarly, the outrage stemming from the Wuhan virus pandemic largely overshadowed issues of border security and immigration. However, this should not lessen the importance of the immigration issue.
As Mexico continues tearing itself apart, America must bolster its border security. Unfortunately, the incoming President Joe Biden is not up to task and will prioritize weak border enforcement and a potential amnesty for illegal aliens. America will suffer greatly as a result.
