Three People are Charged with Trafficking a 9-Year-Old Boy for Profit into U.S.

Published

Officials say that three individuals have been charged with conspiracy to smuggle a 9-year-old boy from Mexico to Texas to be sold.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that a U.S. citizen living in Piedras Negras, Mexico, Elida Moreno, was paid $1,700 to use her son’s birth certificate to smuggle the boy in question. Officials believe that the boy is a victim of a kidnapping.

According to officials, Moreno entered the country through Eagle Pass, where she and the child stayed in a hotel before heading to San Antonio the next day.

She was asked by a friend’s neighbor to meet with Mexican citizen Nery Dominguez at Santa Rosa Park. At this spot, she would hand over the boy for $2,500.

At some point during this encounter, the friend’s neighbor told Moreno to not hand over the boy. This friction apparently caused “a struggle between Moreno and [Dominguez],” officials say.  San Antonio Police quickly arrived at the scene and arrested Dominguez.

Afterwards, Moreno was instructed to take the boy to Victor Monsivais, 65, instead. She turned the boy over to Monsivais at a truck stop in San Antonio, according to official reports.

Homeland Security Investigations intercepted the boy and Monsivais during a sting operation in a grocery store parking lot in San Antonio on Wednesday morning, according to a KSAT report.

On Tuesday, Moreno was pulled over in Batesville, TX, where she was questioned at a Homeland Security facility in Eagle Pass.

Moreno, Dominguez and Monsivais are now facing conspiracy charges while Moreno was also slapped with a charge of “bringing an illegal alien into the U.S. for profit” and “making a false statement to a federal official upon conviction.”

This is just one of many cases demonstrating the need for stronger border security and an overhaul of the American immigration system.

Mass migration comes with dangerous side effects, especially when U.S. laws are not up to the standard of addressing the very real problems awaiting America across the border.

It’s only natural that the American electorate is becoming restless on this issue.

A proper immigration enforcement regime could prevent situations like these.

BLP reports that immigration is the primary issue that GOP voters value during the 2020 elections.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
