Six illegal aliens, including at least one high-level Mexican cartel member, were arrested in North Carolina for drug trafficking.

“Federal officials said more than 1,800 grams of meth were delivered from a luxury home in Statesville in August and October of 2018,” according to WSOCTV.  “The person who lived there, Oscar Rangel-Guiterrez, is an alleged high-level cartel member. Rangel-Guiterrez’s parents lived in a large home in Troutman, according to the indictment.”

According to the report, the illegal men are tied to the growing Jalisco New Generation Cartel, the main opposition to the famed Sinaloa Cartel, formerly run by Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán Loera. El Chapo was convicted on 1o federal offenses in a New York City courtroom last week.

“Court documents indicated that Rangel-Guiterrez and the five other suspects were in the country illegally,” the report said. “Agents said Rangel-Guiterrez transported 30 kilograms of cocaine and an unspecified large quantity of methamphetamine in a one-month period from Texas to Georgia and North Carolina.”

The other five men arrested were Rodolfo Martinez, Oscar Rangel-Gutierrez, Raul Rangel- Gutierrez, Regulo Rangel-Gutierrez, and Francisco Garcia-Martinez.

The battle over border security still rages in Washington, D.C. Last week, President Donald J. Trump signed a spending bill that included only $1.3 billion for border wall funding and requires him to get permission from local officials before building any barrier. Thereafter, he declared National Emergency to free up Department of Defense funds in order to build the wall.

He will likely face a lengthy court battle over the declaration.

Customs and Border Patrol Set to Deploy Elite Units to Sanctuary Cities to Assist ICE

CBP is serious about enforcing immigration law, even in cities that intend to flout it.

Published

on

Customs and Border Patrol is preparing to redeploy some of the agency’s highly trained tactical personnel throughout the nation’s “sanctuary cities” in order to support Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The New York Times reported on the development Friday, that signals the Department of Homeland Security(which presides over both entities) is dead serious about national immigration enforcement, even in scofflaw municipalities that have sought to neuter it.

According to the report, more than 100 of CBP’s agents are being deployed throughout the nation to assist in ICE operations. It’s possible the agents could be tasked with apprehending illegal alien fugitives who are released onto the streets from local jail custody. They’ve been described as members of a unit known as BORTAC, an unit of personnel analogous to CBP’s SWAT team.

It’s common for sanctuary city jurisdictions to release individuals who are often violent criminals from custody, ignoring ICE detainer requests that the fugitives be instead handed over to face federal charges for immigration violations.

Sanctuary cities often create unnecessary risks to public safety by forcing ICE to arrest dangerous criminals off of the streets, when they could’ve been simply handed over from municipal jail systems to the federal agency. Eric Garcetti, the mayor of one of America’s biggest cities, openly admits that Los Angeles simply does not participate in immigration enforcement.

If scofflaw cities such as Philadelphia and Los Angeles are truly determined to undermine immigration law enforcement, then so be it. Attorney General Bill Barr has followed the lead of his predecessor, Jeff Sessions, in instituting new measures to punish the open borders cities, restricting them from federal law enforcement programs.

Conservatives shouldn’t be afraid of advocating for a strong federal government that will step in to perform the law enforcement duties sanctuary cities are cowering away from.
