America First congressman Paul Gosar also commented, “The “Farm Workforce Modernization Act” would legalize every illegal alien farmworker in America by issuing them “certified agricultural worker” permits and eventually, green cards, issued above the annual green card limit. It’s amnesty for 1.5 million illegal aliens.”

 

 

The vote breakdown for this bill can be viewed here.

However, there is one lesser-known aspect of this vote that should be noted.

Congressmen Brian Fitzpatrick, Fred Upton, Chris Smith, Mario Diaz-Balart, and Will Hurd not only voted for this bill, but they also have a track record of supporting gun control and another amnesty bill earlier this year. Their overall voting habits demonstrate establishment tendencies.

First up is H.R. 8, the universal gun registration bill, which all five of them voted for back in February. This bill represented the largest expansion of gun control at the federal level since the Brady Act was passed in the early 1990s.

Then, this gang of five RINOs voted for the American Dream and Promise Act on June 4, 2019, which would have protected illegal immigrants from being deported and potentially given millions a permanent pathway citizenship.

These three instances of voting show that there are still Republicans in Congress who cannot be counted on to defend key issues such as gun rights and immigration. Grassroots activists should actively keep records of these elected officials around primary season so that they can run more conservative alternatives against these corrupt incumbents.

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.
