Former Congressman and 2020 presidential candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke said on Saturday, August 3, 2019 that President Trump is partially responsible for the Walmart massacre in El Paso, Texas where 20 people were killed.
When asked by news reporters if Trump had any responsibility in this incident, O’Rourke responded in the affirmative.
“Yes. We’ve had a rise in hate crimes every single one of the last three years, during an administration where you have a president who has called Mexicans rapists and criminals”, O’Rourke said on Saturday evening.
The former congressman added, “He is a racist, and he stokes racism in this country. It does not just offend our sensibilities; it fundamentally changes the character of this country, and it leads to violence.”
This statement came after politicians from both sides of the aisle, even Trump himself, expressed their condolences after this atrocity.
Texas law enforcement officials confirmed that the suspect, a 21-year-old male from the Dallas area, was the author of a polemical manifesto that appeared on the 8chan website before the attack took place.
George P. Bush, Texas’ Land Commissioner, condemned the shooting as an act of “white terrorism” in a statement right after O’Rourke made his remarks.
BLP reported on O’Rourke’s desire to ban AR-15s, which he will most certainly double down on in the wake of this shooting.
In the midst of this uproar, many media outlets have downplayed the role that veteran Glen Oakley played in saving various children during this shooting.
Oakley took advantage of the concealed carry license that Texas law allows him to possess. He uses this to help shelter children that were running away from the shooting scene.
BLP will stay tuned to further developments in this situation.
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.
