Mexican Drug Kingpins Are Seizing Control of Mexico’s Lucrative Avocado Industry

Published

on

Latin Post recently covered a story about Mexican drug cartels recent forays into the agricultural industry.

According to some reports, Mexican cartels are making attempts to take over Mexico’s booming avocado industry.

Although there no reports so far of cartels storming into avocado producing areas, there are indicators of one drug syndicate, the Viagras cartel, seizing protected land with the aim of cultivating and selling avocados.

However, some of the landowners and farmers will not give up this land without a fight.

“The threat is constant and from all sides,” Jose Maria Ayala Montero told the Los Angeles Times.

According to the LA Times, Ayala Montero works for “a trade association that formed its own vigilante army to protect growers.”

Local authorities have proven to be useless in stopping these invasions .

One law enforcement official said during an interview with the AP that the cartels are already taking land, building orchards, and then setting up drug labs in the vicinity of those orchards.

According to a local police chief, cartels have “done everything – extortions [and] protection payments,” rendering law enforcement helpless against these cartels.

In the state of Michoacan alone, the avocado industry generates two billion dollars of revenue annually.

It’s no surprise that cartels wants a piece of the pie. As cartels become more involved in the avocado sector, violence will naturally follow.

Mexico’s favorable climate for avocado growing and overall lower labor costs make the avocado industry rather lucrative.

It only makes sense that drug cartels enter this industry in order to maximize their revenues and diversify their income streams.

The Mexican government has resoundingly demonstrated its inability to defend itself against drug cartels.

Over the years, Mexican drug rings started out as normal criminal organizations armed with conventional weapons, to heavily-equipped outfits that challenge the Mexican government’s monopoly on violence.

Now, they have the potential of becoming huge economic players in Mexico.

In light of these developments, America needs to get its act together on border security, unless it wants Mexican-style cartel violence to cross its borders.

Woke Leftists Upset Over Christian Organzation Setting Up Hospital for Coronavirus Patients

Published

on

Samaritan’s Purse, a charitable Christian organization that helps the poor and sick all over the world, has setup a temporary tent hopsital in New York City.

Most see this as an all around positive, but not radical LGBTQ activists and their allies.

Some Leftists in New York have complained of the organization’s traditional Christian beliefs on sexuality. They claim to believe that Samaritan’s Purse might treat LGBTQ patients with less consideration or care.

This nonsensical narrative reached Mayor Bill DeBlasio’s office, who has also now expressed concern. DeBlasio said,

I said immediately to my team that we had to find out ­exactly what was happening. Was there going to be an approach that was truly consistent with the values [of] New York City?

We’re going to send people over from [my] office to monitor. I’m very concerned to make sure this is done right. But if it is done right, of course, we need all the help we can get.

Samaritan’s Purse and its workers have done everything from risking their lives to serve Ebola patients in Africa to helping after tornadoes here in the states. They have also already been dealing with coronavirus in Italy, giving them much needed experience.

They are exactly who you want to show up in a time like this. The combination of experience, compassion, and dedication they have is very hard to match.

And no, they do not discrimate based on sexuality. They never have and there is no indication they ever will.

To suggest that they need to be monitored or that New York should be worried about their presense is not only unwarranted, it’s insulting.

DeBlasio is taking advantage of Samaritan’s Purse because he knows they, unlike him, are not utter degenerates. He knows that Samaritan’s Purse will do everything they can to help, despite knowing they are hated by the Mayor and his ilk.

This whole incident shows that Bill DeBlasio is a weak effiminate man who is more concerned with his public imagine than saving lives. He will accept the help, but insult those helpers, all while pretending he has displayed some sort of virtue.

This is outright bigotry, disguised with smooth talk.
