The battle over the removal of a Confederate monument from a park in Dallas, Texas continues to drag on in court.
Back in March, the city’s Landmark Commission voted to remove the Confederate War Memorial from the Pioneer Park Cemetery.
However, a lawsuit which argues that the city didn’t follow procedure is now stalling the removal.
The parties responsible for filing the lawsuit were ordered to pay a $50,000 bond because the city claims it’s spending hundreds of dollars daily to keep the monument standing.
One of the individuals who filed the suit, Warren Johnson, said on Thursday, November 7, 2019 that Dallas residents raised the money in just over 25 days.
“We have been pounding the phones and pounding Facebook,” Johnson declared. “It has just been a marathon to raise money.”
Additionally, Dallas resident Chris Carter filed a separate lawsuit to keep the monument from being removed and helped raise money for the bond.
“Now the monument is under the protection of the courts,” Carter stated. “City Hall cannot touch it. They can’t do anything with it until legal proceedings are complete.”
Carter and Johnson have plans to take the lawsuit to trial.
“There is a huge groundswell of support to keep this monument in place,” Carter declared.
Monument removals are a calling card for the iconoclastic Left.
One part of their political correctness agenda, monuments removals serve the purpose of gutting America’s culture while letting the Left continue to dictate the pace in terms of shifting the politics further in the direction of complete thought-policing.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
