A U.S. Senator from Virginia spoke at a “Families Belong Together” rally in Richmond, VA where protestors vocally called for the abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
“The President thought he could separate kids from their parents, and the American public wouldn’t care” said Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) to protestors. “That’s the only reason he did it. He thought they wouldn’t care. But the President realized that America has a moral gag reflex and we are revolted by his decision.”
It is well established that the current border policy has been in place since at least the Bush administration. The faux-outrage is a tired routine, but somebody has to play Senator. Watch the full clip here. Speaking of gag reflexes, the clip is pretty cringeworthy.
More importantly than the Senator’s dog-and-pony show is the fact that protestors at this event were in completely in favor abolishing ICE.
Watch, starting at minute 29 where they begin their chant:
“Take home this message,” the speaker said at the closing of the rally. “We will abolish ICE together. We will free these families together. But only if each of us does our part of the work. So let’s close on an ‘Abolish ICE’ chant and then head home.”
The protestors proceeded with the chant.
We know that the lawless left hates ICE, and even protests the organization when it arrests child sex traffickers. Why put pedophiles in jail when America could have open borders instead? But abolishing ICE used to be a relatively fringe opinion. It was agreed upon, until recently, that we had to have some kind of security at the border.
President Trump has driven the political left so mad that they only way they can seem to react is by moving further left. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) called for the abolishment of ICE just last week.
Big League Politics reached out to Kaine’s office to see if they still held a sane position on the issue, but received no response.
Kaine and his ilk in the mainstream media have been unkind to Kaine’s opponent, Corey Stewart, in the ongoing U.S. Senate race.
Stewart’s past association with a politician who made anti-Semitic remarks long after the two were friendly has been treated like a scarlet letter. Chris Cuomo chided Stewart for not “denouncing the extremism on [the political right]” during a CNN interview, which is both ridiculous and factually inaccurate.
If Kaine is to be judged by the same standard – the company he keeps – is it safe to assume that he wants ICE abolished, just like the protestors he rallied with? Is his failure to denounce them a de facto agreement with their views?
Playing by the rules of the left, perhaps it should be considered that way.
Sinaloa Cartel Suspects Arrested at Border for Carrying $3.5 Million in Cash and Massive Amounts of Cocaine and Fentanyl
Drug Cartels Will Have a Field Day During a Biden Administration
On November 24, 2020, the Justice Department published a press release on how three Mexican citizens suspected of trafficking enormous quantities of illegal drugs for the Sinaloa Cartel received charges in federal court. This case is likely the biggest seizure of ammunition, cash, and narcotics in the district.
Jesus Burgos Arias, Juan Alatorre Venegas, and Jose Yee Perez were arrested on November 20, 2020. This arrest was the product of a joint investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Homeland Security Investigations, the San Diego Sheriff’s Department, San Diego Police Department, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of California, that set its sights on individuals connected to the Sinaloa Cartel.
During these arrests, agents confiscated roughly $3.5 million in cash, 685 kilograms of cocaine, 24 kilograms of fentanyl, and about 20,000 rounds of .50 caliber ammunition and hundreds of body armor vests at a truck yard in Otay Mesa.
In a complaint filed in federal court, the defendants received a drug trafficking conspiracy charge. The defendants were transferred from the San Diego Central Jail to federal custody and made their first appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Barbara L. Major.
“This historic seizure and prosecution is a clear indication of the success of our joint investigative efforts,” declared U.S. Attorney Robert Brewer. “To eradicate this threat to San Diego and our partners in the Republic of Mexico, we will continue to aggressively attack the Sinaloa Cartel’s drug smuggling, money laundering, and arms smuggling operations – depriving them of their illegal merchandise, their profits, and a safe haven.” Brewer gave praise to prosecutor Matthew J. Sutton and the federal and local agents and officers for their diligence in this case.
“Thanks to the collaborative work with our state and federal law enforcement partners, we are able to announce this blow to the Mexican Cartels operating in San Diego,” remarked DEA Special Agent in Charge John W. Callery. “We are further encouraged that we were able to separate them from their dangerous .50 caliber ammunition and over $3 million in drug proceeds that they have gained through selling death here in our community and throughout the US.”
“This seizure is significant not just because of its size, but because it demonstrates the direct correlation between narcotics, illicit money, and guns that drives violence in our communities and destroys lives,” stated Homeland Security Investigation (HSI) Special Agent in Charge Cardell T. Morant. “HSI will continue to work with our law enforcement partners and prosecutors to aggressively pursue the Sinaloa Cartel and other transnational criminal organizations.”
“The Sheriff’s Department is committed in working with our justice partners throughout the region to combat the dangerous drugs and violence associated with narcotic trafficking,” commented San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore. “Sheriff’s deputies see the destruction and damage that illegal drugs cause every day. We are proud of what this case has accomplished, and the continued work being done to hold these criminals accountable.”
The Southern District of California led an investigation over the past five years that resulted in the aforementioned case being brought forward. The overall investigation has brought charges against over 125 people and has greatly affected the global operations of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The investigation started in late 2011 when authorities busted a small-scale drug distribution cell in National City and Chula Vista. After substantial investigation, law enforcement discovered that the Sinaloa Cartel was involved and the case morphed into a massive investigation that crossed state and national lines. The broader case led to dozens of arrests and seizures of 1,397 kilograms of methamphetamine, 2,214 kilograms of cocaine, 17.2 tons of marijuana, 95.84 kilograms of heroin, and $27,892,706 in drug-related funds.
With the Biden administration coming into power, similar cases will abound as it becomes clear that border security will become an afterthought during a Biden presidency.
