A previously deported illegal alien who made his way back to the United States and was living in Kansas was arrested in early June and charged with a bevy of drug crimes.
“Pedro Cervantes is charged with possessing with intent to distribute cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana, as well as possessing a gun in furtherance of drug trafficking and possessing a gun while in the country illegally,” according to The Wichita Eagle.
The charges against him were filed in federal court last week.
Cervantes was deported in 2015, but apparently had no problem illegally reentering the United States, and allegedly ramped up quite the drug selling operation once he returned.
From The Wichita Eagle:
“An ATF special agent wrote in an affidavit that investigators found guns, drugs and drug paraphernalia inside the house. Drugs were found in plastic bags on the dining room table. The document doesn’t detail the amount of cocaine, meth and marijuana that was found, stating only that the amount seized indicates it was likely intended for distribution. Additional drugs were found in the kitchen, as well as supplies to package drugs.”
Several drug-weighing scales, a large amount of cash, and three guns – including a Glock handgun, a Mossberg shotgun, and a Colt rifle that had been reported stolen in 2016 – were also found at the scene.
Cervantes’ arrest comes during a time of gridlock in Washington, D.C. over the issue of border security.
Big League Politics reported:
President Donald J. Trump has declared a national state of emergency, for which several heavily-blue states immediately sued his administration. Democrats refuse to budge on the issue, unwilling to secure America’s borders. As illegal border crossings surge, they blocked a meaningful amount of wall funding in the 2019 federal budget.
In what many conservatives see as a colossal failure, the Republican Congress, led by former Speaker Paul Ryan, current Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, failed to deliver wall funding to the president’s desk during all of 2017 and 2018, when Republicans held the House, the Senate, and the White House.

Texas Representative Introducing Legislation for State to Finish “President Donald J. Trump Wall”
The wall can be completed at a state level.
A Texas legislator is pledging to complete sections of President Donald Trump’s border wall, proposing new legislation that would enable the state of Texas to resume construction of the wall system abandoned by Joe Biden.
Bryan Slaton of House District 2 is pledging to name the complete wall the “President Donald J. Trump Wall” in House Bill 2862.
We all know Biden has opened the flood gates at our border. That's why today, I have filed HB 2862 to finish President Trump's wall in Texas.
If the federal government won't do its job protecting American citizens, then Texas will stand in the gap and do it for them.#txlege

“President Trump fought to bring real border security and was opposed by Republicans and Democrats in Congress. While hundreds of miles of new wall were built under his leadership, the Biden administration has already ceased border wall construction,” Slaton said in a press statement announcing the legislation.
“It is time for Texas to stand up and finish the work that President Trump started. Let’s finish building the border wall now.”
It’s likely legal for state governments to take eminent domain measures to acquire land on the border and build a protective wall on it. Contractors already lined up to work with the federal government may even be willing to negotiate rates with Texas, having fully engaged in building more than 450 miles of wall during Donald Trump’s presidency. Slaton’s legislation would also formally request compensation for wall construction from the federal government. The bill is currently awaiting assignment to a committee in the Texas House of Representatives.
Customs and Border Patrol agents have pointed to the border wall system as a lifesaver on the southern border, enabling law enforcement to focus resources in more concentrated areas where illegal immigration and drug trafficking have been focused.
An Arizona Sheriff is pointing to the cessation of wall construction as an invitation of criminality. Likening the border regions of Cochise County to a “crime scene,” Mark Dannels is describing the abandoned construction sites as “roads for the cartels,” pointing to rates of illegal immigration and smuggling that have doubled since Joe Biden ascended to the presidential throne.
Arizona legislators may soon follow in funding border wall construction at a state level, leaving California and New Mexico as Democrat-leaning states unlikely to secure the nation’s borders with states funds.
