Two illegal aliens living in Georgia, one from Mexico and one from El Salvador, were arrested Friday morning after police served an arrest warrant and found nearly 75 pounds of cocaine in their Cobb, Ga., home.

“Carlos Arturo Villegas Silva, 22, is charged with drug trafficking and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and Jorge Salvador Pineda, 30, is charged with giving a false name or date of birth,” said The Marietta Daily Journal. 

The report said that both men have “holds from the U.S. Department of Immigrations and Customs Enforcement on their booking sheets, indicating they may be eligible for deportation.”

Big League Politics reported:

An illegal alien was caught in Iredale County, North Carolina Friday with nine pounds of cocaine.

“Eyian Valenti Robotham, 53, was arrested after deputies noticed discrepancies in the information he provided during the traffic stop near mile marker 65,” said WBTV.

Robotham, who was living in Atlanta, was stopped on I-77 for a traffic violation while reportedly transporting the drugs to Alabama. When police searched his vehicle, they found “four kilogram-sized packages with 8.8 pounds of cocaine inside of them.” The drugs have a street value of $400,000.

Further investigation found that Robotham is living in the United States illegally. The Department of Homeland Security placed a detainer on him, which means he will likely face deportation proceedings once his criminal matter is resolved.

“Robotham has been charged with felony trafficking a schedule II narcotic by possession, felony trafficking a schedule II narcotic by transportation and felony maintaining a vehicle for controlled substances,” the report said.

Gov. Ron DeSantis Puts Anti-E-Verify Republicans On Notice

Some Republicans want to water down the proposal.

Published

on

As a battle over a strong statewide E-Verify law heats up in Tallahassee, Florida Governor Rick DeSantis is cautioning Republicans who seek to neuter the law over the ire they’ll face from conservative voters.

Florida is set to pass a E-Verify law that will prevent businesses from hiring illegal immigrants as workers. Currently in the Florida Senate committee process, big business interests are seeking to institute special exemptions for industries that commonly hire illegals.

DeSantis is pushing back hard against the effort to put free passes in the legislation for the agricultural industry. Another area of contention is over the law’s enforcement mechanism. Elements seeking to neuter the Florida E-Verify system want employers to merely promise they aren’t hiring illegals, as opposed to making them definitively prove it.

DeSantis was clear about warning Republicans who try to neuter the e-Verify proposal when speaking to the press outside of the state capital on Wednesday.

DeSantis’ warning to Republicans who tacitly support giveaways of cheap labor and non-enforcement of immigration law should be taken seriously by any legislator who considers themselves a conservative, and relies upon a conservative constituency.

Senator Tom Lee, who represents Florida’s 20th district, is cautioning that Governor DeSantis could veto the entire bill and force lawmakers to start over if they stuff it full of exemptions for scofflaw big business interests. He says that the effort to make employers merely promise to hire illegals is no different than instituting an impotent “honor system.”

The law currently will mandate that businesses in Florida verify their employees’ legal status by July of 2022.
