North Carolina County Declares Itself a Pro-Life Sanctuary

Published

on

On August 19, 2019, Yadkin County in North Carolina became the first official sanctuary county for life in America.

Pastor Keith Pavlansky, the president of Personhood North Carolina, declared that the passage of this pro-life resolution was an historic event and also added that the resolution “is the first step in adopting a complete culture of life in our communities.”

The resolution does the following:

  1. The first objective establishes, as the official policy of the county, the scientific fact that life begins at conception or fertilization.
  2. The second commits to enforce this policy “by all means within its power, in accordance with its responsibilities as the people’s elected local representatives.”

Pro-life activists are following up by erecting a plaque on the county government grounds. This plaque commemorates the resolution and the efforts of pro-life activists to make this policy a reality.

According to LifeSiteNews, there are “plans for public town hall meetings to work with the people, churches, and local organizations to find ways to provide support for mothers and fathers of pre-born children so that the county can become a place that truly welcomes and protects the gift of life.”

LifeSiteNews notes that this sanctuary county is unique because of its affirmation of “the right of the people to protect the right to life against a tyrannical judiciary.”

Sarah Quale, president of Personhood Alliance Education, told LifeSiteNews that the Personhood Alliance is working with its affiliate organizations to spread sanctuaries for life across the nation.

“When you look at a county-by-county map of America, and you see how conservative the vast majority of them are, you realize the enormous opportunity the pro-life movement has. But for almost 50 years, we’ve completely given our power away and trusted politicians and judges to end the injustice of abortion. After all this time, shouldn’t we be further along?” Quale asked.

Quale added, “There are hundreds of counties like Yadkin and thousands of towns and municipalities with good Christian people who want to stand up and do something impactful and eternal. The only reason abortion is still legal in the United States and still culturally accepted under the auspices of choice, rights, and healthcare is because we have allowed it to be so. It’s time for us to change that.”

Sanctuaries for life are the latest in the trend of political decentralization that is sweeping across the nation.

When politicians at the federal and state level won’t do their jobs, citizens at the local level are now taking matters into their own hands.

U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel

Published

on

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.
